my brothers boat is a 12 foot flat bottom and it is stable it holds me up there and Im 6'2" 300 lbs we did put a wood deck across the front for more of a work platform up front and changed his stern mount trolling motor into a bow mount
at first he wanted a rail up front I told him you do most your floundering in such shallow water a rail would just take up room and not really be worth it but I have went over a couple times in my own boat thankfully it was in summer and in less than a foot of water once again try what you want do what you can afford and just get out there n enjoy it its fun and the sights are spectacular
Thanks for the info TC. Gonna give it a whirl in the spring.

Default 100 watt 3000K lights

The led lights are super bright I could plug them in in my yard and light up my yard and there neighbors yards but when you get in the water they were not that bright they wouldn't penetrate to water I went 3 times we did get a few flounder but I thought I was losing my eye sight I could not see in the water not much at all, now of you gig in really clear water they may work for you I gig in dirty muddy water most of the time, not by my choice just my location lol HPS seem to work the best for me

Franks Right. I don't care how many lumens you throw out there, in stained water it's all about the type of light you throw. HPS all the way.

HPS are old technology. Everyone should switch to Bright White LEDs they put out plenty of light and you can use batteries and don't have to listen to that loud generator running all night.
