I know it's no mystery that light will attract crabs at night, but has anyone else seen (or tried) this crabbing light that I recently found in the local Walmart?  It was grouped in with the cages and other crabbing paraphernalia...It's a light that is made to float on the water's surface that gets hooked up to a car battery, and branded specifically for the purpose of attracting crabs.

It was only 12 bucks so I may pick it up just to try it, but I was wondering if it's any better or worse than just using any other high power light that doesn't float on the surface.

If memory serves me correctly, that's it.  Any good, or junk?

That's the first I've heard of them being marketed as a crab attractant.  I picked one up at a yard sale years ago for a buck, might just try it for shiggles next time I'm handlining in the early AM.  idea2

I can remember as a kid in my old mans boat with a spotlight and a net scooping up the crabs as they surfaced.
