    Hi,
    Hogy is having a sale on some inshore and offshore stuff. I grabbed some of the 6" plastic squids. The squids are much more durable than the soft baits on the 9er/M&M umbrella rigs. One bite by a blue and those 6" shads are toast.
    BTW I misremembered (aka lied) like Brian Williams on Hogy. I said I never caught anything with them. I've had great success with the weighted SI jigs (the bigger ones with the treble hook in the end. Sea Bass and Macs galore on them. The Hogy softbaits - not so much luck. Maybe one striper and not caught by me.....

    Reply box made split my message into less characters per reply...Below is part of my 1st reply...

    Like I said earlier about professional installations...they won't come cheap. But that doesn't mean you can't try out a solution that fits you budget to see if it satisfies your needs. The only thing I know selling lighting control and automation for a living...I have to make sure it works every time...because my reputation and wallet depend on it. That's why I would recommend these home-made relay things unless your a real tech handyman...because someone is going to get hurt (and it sounds like there is a lot of water around this area which makes it even more dangerous : -).

    You can shoot me any other questions you might have.

    Yes, I would use a RAB. Half the guys posting on your thread didn't read your OP...and where offering solutions that did't match your objectives.

    I would simple mount head facing the water and the flood aimed into the slip area (the RAB head can be adjusted to quite a degree of sensitivity and light value from daylight to full darkness). You can set the unit into test mode and run the boat past the head several times to dial in the location and sensitivity of the beam. Then turn it to their RUN mode and it won't kick it till dark.

    Been doing this for almost 35 years, and I recommend and use RAB consistently (good stuff....works).

    Hi. You gave me some good thoughts regarding my docking lighting...RAB, looked online at their wares and th look good. Giving that I have a incandescent flood pointing into my slip already, would you use a RAB motion sensor? I'm considering the smart box. I could box mount that pointed up river where I have to approach from. I am also considering a remote for our lift...I wonder if the lift remote would trigger the lights earlier than the motion sensor...thoughts?
