How far does the light regatta travel? Trying to figure out how long an extension cord I'll need...

My cruise went to Jamaica, Caymans, and Cozumel, so I know they make really long extension cords.  I'm sure you can find a smaller one.  ;)

I'm thinking more like Dollar Store regatta here.... :2funny:

 

OK - maybe a little nicer.  But not that nice.

I'm sorry that I'm going to miss this.  This has been on my calendar since TG told me about it in May.  My wife's office Christmas party is the same night though.

Mike, you want me to sabotage the building or something so that you can make it? :NTN:

If we're aren't careful, Kevin's night yak event may become a newsworthy item covered by the media...

It's EL wire on the paddleboards.  But not sure what they have under the yak.  Certainly more than glow sticks.

Fish come to the light ( against the saying of "dont go into the light") and gators come for the fish. Gotta love it. :)

Exactly. Light attracts bugs and small stuff (shrimp and small baitfish) which attracts bigger stuff, which attracts what we are fishin for. Smacks, Specs, Reds Some guys also use em to drift and gig for flounder right about now in the flats and backwater cuts. I honestly have no idea about gators and the light. I suspect they don't like it much. Pure conjecture that I wouldn't bet on.

Yep have fished under and with lights for years. The gator bit was more for stirring the pot. I have no idea how gators react to light at night.
