Toadfish Launches Second Kickstarter Campaign

Sep 02, 2022

We founded Toadfish® because we wanted to do something to give back, something big, so we built a company that enhances the coastal lifestyle and champions conservation. Toadfish is committed to replanting new oyster beds with every product sold. To date, we have funded enough oyster beds to filter 82 million gallons of water per day. Through our Put ‘Em Back movement, Toadfish is working to support and expand oyster shell recycling and replanting efforts across the country to ensure a healthy coast for generations to come.

The idea for the Stowaway LED Lantern came from where all great ideas start... an old boat with suspect wiring. We could never get our boat lights to work properly, no matter what we did. Eventually, we bought battery-operated lights and none of them would last longer than a few months. After decades of disappointing lighting options, we started designing the Stowaway.  The Stowaway LED Lantern is the most versatile, fully sealed, shatterproof, aluminum, LED lantern on the market.

After successfully launching our Toadfish Carbon Elite Reels on Kickstarter IN 2021 (960 backers pledged $186,710), we have decided to launch our second! 

Help us bring our bright idea to life and aid us in our efforts to clean coastal waters.



From the boat to the campsite the Stowaway LED Lantern will bring light to any situation. Its versatile design allows it to be used as a handheld flashlight, hanging tent light, utility light, or safety light, and can be suctioned or magnetized to most surfaces. Its sleek, single-piece aluminum housing combined with the IPX5 sealed construction makes it both waterproof and corrosion-resistant.
