Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most common questions we receive about our lights.
Simply “click” on the question to reveal the corresponding answer.

If bugs are out, this light draws bugs your first evening. However, it may take several nights to attract fish. You’ll find that your Bo-Jo is extremely effective at attracting fish after a short while.
We have seen and tested many competitors’ lights. We have fitted our Bo-Jo lights with green bulbs. We have tested ultra-economical LED lightbulbs (which cast a somewhat bluer light).

Another bulb type we’ve tested is blacklight bulbs, which have some interesting characteristics.

Overall, we mostly use the standard white fluorescent bulbs on our own lights.

Depending on your water conditions and the time of year, you might have decent success with green bulbs.

One thing to keep in mind with Bo-Jo lights is that we are not just attracting fish with our lights, but bugs…to be able to feed them to the fish.

Bo-Jo Lights are nearly maintenance free.
You can take a dampened Scotch-Brite (or similar) scrubbing pad and wipe down the inside of the lamp reflector, and the bug-whacking cords. Some people used to use solvents like oven cleaner, but this is probably not good for the light or for the environment.
Yes, they certainly are.

Our light puts bugs on the surface of the water, which is where most of the fish are going to snap them up anyways.

Another advantage of our above water lighting systems is that you don’t have your fishing line getting tangled all the time with underwater light cables.

Your Bo-Jo Fishlight carries a two (2) year warranty for lights registered through our website or via the postcard included with every light. Otherwise there is a one (1) year warranty. Our simple warranty terms are here.
Our lights are built to last. We basically will replace anything that a customer says isn’t functioning properly, except for light bulbs. It is actually very rare that something goes amiss with one of our lights. If you ever have a problem with a Bo-Jo product, just drop us a line via email or a phone call and we’ll get your light back to doing its job of attracting bugs in no time. Guaranteed!
It is a simple, solid, honest guarantee. If you get your light and don’t like it after 60 days, you can return it to get your money back. We rarely have someone take us up on our offer, because customers universally love our lights!
There isn’t any fine print. If you don’t like our light, and its performance after trying it, we’ll give you your money back for 60 days from the purchase date. Our published page on the 60-Day Guarantee is here.
The answer to this one is “It depends”. Not all of our dealers are listed on our website. However, we’d be happy to discuss prospects with you.
Generally, around $25 per light, though we occasionally run coupon specials to help out with this. Our light is made of quality parts and a lot of metal, so it is expensive to pack and ship. Contact us for freight information on large orders.
Chuckle. We get asked this all the time!

My friend and I were fishing one day and we started talking about an idea for a dock light that would do exactly what our current fishlight does.

We designed it and constructed prototypes together. Then we went into business as “Bo-Jo Fishlight, LLC”.

Our names are Bob Hunnicutt and Joe Pearson.

Joe retired from our firm in 2011, but our light’s name is forever!

People commonly search on BoJoe, BoJo or Bo-Joe to find us, so we guess we are nearly a household name now!

We are located in Fort Valley, Georgia which is very close to the exact center of the state of Georgia. We live and work in what we like to call “bug heaven”! We have some pretty good fishing around here, too!
Joe and I started developing the light in the early ’90s and we started selling them on a small scale back in 1993. As demand grew, we expanded our dealer network and eventually moved to the addition of online sales. We are pleased that our webpage has become such a resource for many people, and we continue to get lots of feedback through our site. Oh yes, and sales, too!

Having grown the online business has allowed us to be found by customers in Western states like Texas, California, Utah, Montana and Washington where we haven’t had any dealer network. Additionally, customers from New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio and New Jersey seem to be buying more of our lights in the last few years. We can only attribute that to the success of our website presence.
