"Our ability to create has outreached our ability to use wisely the products of our invention." - Whitney M. Young
A surveying friend of mine was telling me about his dad making a fish feeder using the energy in the water flowing through his spillway to produce a small amount of electricity via a generator to have lights installed on float. The lights attracted insects that would ultimately end up in the water where they would quickly become a meal. I had been wanting to build this for a while and found time this week to grab a few lights. I went with two spotlights and 2 of the normal patio type solar lights. I had some rigid foam board from a previous project so all I really needed was one treated 2 x 4 x 8' and one treated 1 x 6 x 8'. I left the float sitting out overnight to make sure all of the lights were working. I will the kayak out this weekend and place the fish feeder. I have an eye bolt near the center and will be using a CMU block I have onsite as the anchor. After a few days and letting the fish get used to it I will post back on the results.
