    I am fully aware that there will be some rolling of eyes. Others will be concerned about creating fish scaring devices = too bright - off-putting for tuna?
    In my dreams, just opening the box is done looking over one's shoulder, to watch out for supper cows crashing the deck.
    The boxes are 1/2 size 3700's so both fit on one shelf of my tackle box.

    Note the fan in the upper left hand corner of the lower box.

    8 5050 true UV LED strips, Lithium battery and computer fan in one. some glow in the dark jigs in the other.

    Pretty bright. If it doesn't work for fishing, perhaps it could be a sterilizer?

    With a couple of lures.

    Closed for about 30 seconds. then it took me about a minute to get to the dark closet:

    I do need to find something more productive to do with my time.

    18' Bayrunner, but I like the American Angler and the Red Rooster III
    I envision a lot of well entertained anglers on that trip next January.

    I always used the bright-as-the-sun sodium halide lights the boat usually has hanging over the side.
    That seems way more stealth though.

    I've heard they work good for growing tomatoes in closets too. Love the idea!
