Mounting Ideas for Your Mini Swamp Eye Submersible Light

The Mini Swamp Eye Submersible Lights are a great option for times when you need a light that can run above water, underwater, or is just subject to a whole lot of both. These lights are extremely resilient and are very bright for their compact size. Their low power draw makes them perfect to mount on any boat or even a flounder gig pole for wading and gigging. We've even seen people run these lights off the back of their boat to light up the wake behind them. The options are endless with these tough, compact, and bright LED lights.

Wading and Flounder Gigging Light

One of the most common uses for the Mini Swamp Eye Submersible is for walking the shore gigging flounder. It can easily run on a 12V deer feeder battery for a night of sticking fish. It can be used above or below water, and the bright light works great for lighting up flounder or for helping avoid stepping on stingrays or foreign objects. 

Flounder Gigging Boat Light

If you're flounder gigging, you may need to run lights both above water and below water. The Mini Swamp Eye Submersible is capable of running either way and the compact nature of these lights means they don't take up much space on the front of your boat. 

Bowfishing Boat Light

Most bowfishing boats opt for our Swamp Eye Light Bar for bowfishing light, but some will still use the Mini Swamp Eye Submersible because of how compact they are. For similar reasons, we've also had customers mount our Mini Swamp Eye's in tight-fit spaces where they happen to have shadows with their current bowfishing lights. Another common mounting method for bowfishermen is to mount them to their trolling motor with a 1/4-inch U bolt to give them a better underwater view.

    Hi Lee – most people will put the 12 volt deer feeder battery in a backpack or a fanny pack attached to their waist. In our opinion, if you are using the Mini Swamp Eye Submersible, it is easiest to mount the light to the same pole that the gig is on so you are only carrying one pole. The Mini Swamp Eye Submersible is very bright, and mounting it above the flounder gig allows it to flood the area you are wading / walking, making it easier to see what’s around you. This can help minimize the risk you step on stingrays while wading because you’ll have a better opportunity to see them beforehand.

    That being said, we see people attach them to the flounder gig pole itself as we discussed and people will also run them on their own separate PVC or aluminum pole to carry. There are pictures of both methods in the article above.

    If you are using the pole the light is attached to, to gig flounder, then I would recommend using 3/4-inch schedule 40 aluminum pipe. If you are only using it for a light, then PVC will work fine. PVC can work as a flounder gig as well but it is not going to have the strength that aluminum has. Aluminum is a much better material for flounder gig poles.

    I am new to this flounder gigging but where do you put the 12 volt deer feeder battery? Do you put it in a backpack? I am thinking about getting the mini swamp eye light. Do you recommend putting the gig and light on the same pole? Is a PVC pipe sturdy enough?

    Hi Bruno – our 120W power converter will power up to 3 Mini Swamp Eye Submersible Lights. The power converter comes with a plug for a 120V home outlet.

    Do you have power adapter for the Mini Swamp Eye Submersible to plug into home outlets 120Volts?

    Hi Michael – the brightest portable walking light we offer is our full sized Swamp Eye Submersible. It is roughly 20,000 lumens, while the Mini Swamp Eye Submersible is roughly 6,000 lumens. It will draw more power than the Mini Swamp Eye Submersible, but can still get good run times for wading and gigging.
