    Has anyone had any success with this light? Thinking about making one.

    I've used a green under water light for crappie it seems to attract minnows which in turn attracts bigger fish.

    Yes. It works. You can also take a mason jar and drill holes in the lid so water can get in. Tie a string in the middle of the lid, drop a one ounce or so sinker in it. Pop a green cylume nightstick in the jar, fill it with water and suspend it just below a hole. Cheap solution from times past. Light sticks are probably on sale right now since Halloween was a bust...

    ..oh, I forgot to say add a few minnows to the jar too. It's like crack for crappies.

    Fishing over a baited area! I like that, Thanks for the tip.
    Here's one for you. If you trap your own minnows ; the night before, place one or two cyalume lights in the trap and hang in a tree near the stream close to some bushes. It will, or should have plenty of minnow bugs in it. Works better than bread,or dog food. But adding some dog food won't hurt .
