That's the whole idea. If the other guys can't see then you have a better chance to gig more fish.

BTW If they are that close to you then they deserve to be blinded

I just completed a thru-the-hull installation of 10 - 40W Jerry's LEDs in 2000K. This is the first installation of that new offering. I can either run directly from my 12V bank or use a bunk convertor from my 24V bank. The switching for the 3 zones is at the bow. This color temperature in LED should provide much of the benefit of HPS lighting without the bulk & noise. Hopefully I'll have some video on the water before the end of the month.

I was disapointed..... When you said " thru the hull" I figured they would be underwater.

Needs 2 more on each side, like the one you have on the side.

It's amazing how fast you can get up on one and extra light down the side really helps + You'll do a Lot of bank running.

LOL! Sorry to disappoint! While the lights are submersible and I'm confident that the faces of the lights are indeed sealed against the hull, the degree of angle of my hull beneath the waterline would have these lights facing nearly straight down. Besides, the bracing and anchor box would be in the way of accessing that area of the hull.

You may end up being right about the sides but that will be easy enough to rectify if necessary. My reasoning was that we actually gig from the extreme front of the boat. Sitting on the palma type seats actually puts us over the water as the pictures below show.

But in the meantime, if I do run into that problem, I do have 5 green floods mounted on the rails of both sides that will do in a pinch.

Todd
Does those things have seat belts because I'm afraid my fat ass would fall off if hung that far over the front of my boat.

No Doubt, not to mention I would probably cut my foot off with my trolling motor lol but I do see Todds boat is set up different than mine .

I promise it's not as precarious a perch as it looks in those pictures. You're straddling that seat and you're feet are firmly planted on the bow. The posts are adjustable so I suppose you could drop it all the way down and possibly dip your toes in the water. That barge does a pretty good job of handling a couple of big ol' boys at the front.

I need to get my air troller finished so I can do away with the trolling motor!
