Default Breeze Fabricators//10/04 Results

Gigging has really been good this week with a 3 night total of 40 fish.They are definitely on the move and with these Northeasters the Eastern Shore has has been perfect for the wind and water clarity. Quality of the fish has been great with many over 18 inches and fat. The last pic was from 9/29 and then on Friday the next night I managed 14 fish from 15 to 19 inches. No pics of those becaue the camera batteries were dead,I've been going early morning around 3 am to catch the tide rising and gigging till daylight. These are from last night and largest up to 21 inches with 6 fish over 18 and a total of 16..I've been meaning to post the light bracket that Tad at Breeze Fabrications made for me to mount my bow light. Excellent work and works like a charm. The lights tilt up for running and then down for hunting.Also shown is a view of my deck layout that has worked very well if anyone is working on a setup.Things are looking up and now I'm hunting Mrs. BIG. for the contest.P.S. I can see where someone might think my boat was on fire, I believe more is better when it comes to my flounder lights.
GOOD LUCK

Wow...that is an insane light setup...I love to fish but...geez...save some for the rest of us man! I've seen Overkill's rig so I can't say you've gone that far off the deep end but...all I can say is I hope I don't pull up on the same beach as you or vice-versa cause I'm going to be SOL...hows the glare with that mess???

Afternoon J
The lights are 400 watt HPS and unless it's really rough the glare is not a problem. They light up about a 24 foot radius and I've gigged fish in 8 foot of water if it's clear. In 2 foot of water you can count the grains of sand on the bottom, hard to miss a flattie even if he's buried up to his eyeballs. You need to try to go with me one night and put them to work. My Honda 2000 runs them about 5 hours on a tank of gas and I allways take extra gas in case of a allnighter. I can remove the light bar( 2 bolts) in about 5 minutes,if I want to go fishing and not gigging.The hull is foam filled and she will float in about 4 inches of water.

Sounds like a nice setup Bama...too rich for my blood tho! Generators and three 400w lights...phew...I'm running two little 100w wading lights off a 12v batt. rigged up to pvc on the bow of my 14ft. Carolina Skiff. I operate on good ole push power my friend, nothing fancy...mostly cause I can't afford it! But I also like the simplicity of my rig...light weight, easy to stow and deploy...I doubt I see as many fish as you do because I stay close to shore and don't get nearly the light radius you do... and I don't think I've ever seen, let alone stab at a fish in 8ft. of water unless it was by accident! haha...I would like to go with you one night just to experience the kind of fish slaughter your rig can afford

Default Whew! Sweet Setup

I like how well thought you placed everything to include the gig holder. Breeze Fabricators turns out some beautiful work - to include yours.

Nice haul for the day. I need to run up closer to the pass for better hunting, but not to crazy about running across the bay from Garcon to do it.

My CS is 19.5 and wide, but I can sneak up in 10" with the motor trimmed up. I definitely like the visibility you get. The boat is too heavy to pole, so I use a transom mount trolling motor with a on/off peddle switch mounted up front for control. I really like the report on your visibility. That is insane! I am not to sure about AC on the water, but many do it, just need to research it better.

Cheers,

Bob

Default Morning Giggamon

They are HPS and 400 watt. I've been very pleased with them and if I can come accross them, they can't hide. I gigged one going around a dock in about 8 feet of water and he stood out like a sore thumb. Under normal beach riding they put out about a 24 foot radius. Tried alot of different setups over the years and there is no going back. Don't even want to try to compare with the Overkill, as they are gigging machines.
ROLL TIDE ROLL RIGHT BACK AT YA

Nice job BamaFan, Roll Tide!
So, where did you find the lights an genny, and how do you have them wired. Also, what is the transverse bar made of that support the P&S side lights? I guess the side lighting ovelaps with the bow lighting OK too? Thanks, and nice setup!
