Hauling a clam scout, I used the large led sled lights clam sells and found that if I attached one too the pole and one to the sled, it lit the fishing area well. I do recommend that you use small self taping screws to go through one side of the pole, brother did this after i did and saved time, it also looked cleaner than going through the hole pole, do use included nuts and bolts for sled though. I had my dad make a battery box and ran the wires down the pole to a switch and a battery, I bought a vexilar at the show and just got my fish house, now all I need is ice
