    Here is something that I do when the kids and I go fishing from the bank at night. We use tiki torches set up in a square around us. We got ours at Lowes and they are pretty cheap and seems to keep the bugs away and gives off just the right amount of light. My eight year old loves it cuz the snakes swim by to see what the light is all about (he loves tryin to hit them with rocks).

    That is a good idea, we do that around our campsite as well. I just hope everyone is VERY careful not to start fires. I know the rivers I fish have so many tall weeds and brush, it would be very easy to accidentally start a fire with one. Would work great on an open bank spot though! Sure would beat all the bugs the darned lantern draws in!

    I never used the tiki torches, but we have some of the kerosene lanterns that we fill with tiki torch fuel. They give a soft yellow light and keep the bugs away pretty well.

    Have some friends that use them around their dock when night fishing. They work great for light and keeping the bugs away.. Had a friend that use to put some kerosene in a coffee with a rag and burn it. It worked preety good except for the smell. Think the tiki torches are much better.

    When I go camping or night fishing, I like to take a couple of large citronella candles, the kind that weigh in over 5 ponds and come in galvanized bucket. They repel skeeters and other bugs. They work adequately for the most part, but I may have to invest in a few of the tiki torches and give them a try.

    Sounds like a good idea....all my night fishing is done by boat though, I guess I could throw a couple in the rod holders and have my own floating party.
