Why use Green LED Fishing Lights?

LED is affordable, bright, durable, and extremely efficient - drawing less on your batteries and keeping you on the water longer.

How long do Green LED fishing lights last?

LEDs have a lamp life in the 50,000 hour range. That’s a lot of night fishing.

One of our fishing lights draws 4.75 amps. If you have a 100amp hour battery, divide the 100 by 4.75 and you get over 20 hours of constant run time.

How many LED lights do I need?

It depends. A smaller boat might need just one. If you have a larger boat and more fishing buddies with you, more might be necessary. A pair of lights, submerged too far away from each other will create a more dispersed school. You want the school concentrated to attract the game fish so we suggest the lights be placed about 5-8 feet apart.

SuperNova Green Fishing Light Specifications

Our SuperNova LED fishing light is constructed using 290 green 5050 SMD LED lights encased in waterproof PVC. The light is powered using submersible marine-grade cabling. They are internally weighted and are easily submerged and adjusted to the desired depth. The lights are 24” long x 2.25” in diameter and shipped stock with 18’ cords terminated with battery clamps. I can install cigarette lighter plugs upon request at material costs. I will build custom lengths at the additional cost of materials as well. We also offer a 110v adaptor for use on docks or where house power is available.

How long are the cords?

The lights come standard with 18 feet, but can be made with custom lengths for different purposes, or for you fellas with big boats.

What maintenance is necessary?

Because of our quality waterproof construction, the only maintenance you need to do is rinse them after use (in saltwater) and occasionally clean the clear plastic housing with rubbing alcohol. A little CorrosionX or equivalent on the cable connection is recommended to prevent corrosion.

Can I plug them in at the dock?

Yes. You will need our SuperNova 110 to 12 volt transformer – you cannot plug these directly into a standard wall outlet without the transformer.

Custom Lighting Installs

What colors are available?

Most of them! We also offer color changing strips that cycle through 16 different hues. If you want single color, we stock green, white and blue, but other colors are available as well. Just contact us and we'll let you know all the possibilities!

Kayak LED Light Kits

How many hours do the kayak lights run?

The Basic Kayak Kit draws approximately 1amp-hr.

The Deluxe Kayak Kit draws approximately 1.5 amp-hrs.

The Extreme Kayak Kit draws approximately 2 amp-hrs.

What type of battery do I need?

We recommend a minimum 18 amp-hour sealed lead acid battery (like a deer feeder battery) for the Extreme Kayak Kit, which would give you approximately nine hours of solid fishing time.

Obviously, if you’re using multiple LED strips or other items like GPS or fish finders, or plan to fish for a couple of nights in a row without recharging your battery, you may need a larger battery.

Are the Kayak Lights easy to install?

SuperNova lighting kits and strips do require a basic knowledge of eletrical connections and soldering techniques. We encourage reading our installation instructions thoroughly before beginning. You can view and download the SuperNova Kayak Lights Installation PDF here.

Feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions before, during, or after installation.

How many lumens do our lights emit?

SuperNova LED Strips emit approximately 3400 lumens per 16-ft. strip. That's approximately 212 lumens per foot. They're extremely bright!

What are the specifications of our LED strips?

Most of our LED strips are SMD 5050 IP68 with 60 LEDs per meter. One exception is our HPA Extreme Kayak Kit — we include (1) 16" Warm White LED strip that contains 30 LEDs per meter and is designed for cabin lighting.

Our Trailer Kits also use 30 LED per meter strips.
