Looking for a good lantern for bank fishing the Ohio River. Any suggestions.
Cant go wrong with a coleman.
I like my coleman with the propane bottels. works well most of the time one bottle is plenty for one night out. cools prety fast tooand best of all small in size easy to pack around. wally world like 40 bucks I think.
coleman with the propane tank. loads easier then the ones that use white gas.
Yep, I agree.
Coleman 2-phase fuel lantern.:wink:
Looks like coleman wins :wink::smile2:
i find with a lantern that its hard to see your rods if you have it setting near them cause all you see is the lantern light and it blinds you i block out the light behind it with something so its not shining right in your face then you can see good. and i use a coleman with the batteries and a flourescent buld it works well and the bulbs last awhile and i get the d batteries at the dollar general store and they last as long if not longer than full price batteries hope this helps:tounge_out:
i think a good ol camp fire works good. its free most of the time and it gives you something to do while your waitin on the fish to bite.
Coleman propane lantern gets my vote as well, have use the gas type for many years but the propane is so much eaiser to handle and load.
Get the north star its awesome . Brightest lantern ever made
I got a coleman lantern for a birthday gift when i was 17 and it still works today. Just had to change out the filament.

Floyd, yes they are impressive. If I was going to splurge, I'd get one.
Guess I'm an odd ball in the park!! I still like a Kerosene lantern.:wink: Enough light to see by but not so much light on the water to scare the flatheads near shore.
i have both one that uses fuel and one propane both coleman like 'em both about the same
Coleman propane lantern.
Turning it up full causes a huge swarm of bugs and to use fuel quickly.
I keep mine just bright enough to light the area, but supplement the light with a head-light or flash light.
I have two coleman propane lanterns. Get the ones with the carrying case, especially if they are going get bounced around. Mantles last a lot longer.
Any recommendations for head ligths?
Thanks for all the input on the lanterns.
Welcome Bill to the BOC. A Propane lantern is pretty good on the banks. The coleman gas lanterns are ok also just got to be careful with the gasoline. Each one has it's pro's an con's it just a matter preference.
