Default Can I set up this boat for Gigging???

Hey guys I would like to see what you think about using this boat for gigging? I do some shallow water fishing now, and fish a lot in the bay. I would like to start tring to go gigging. I know it's not the ideal boat for it, but do you think I could make it work? If so how should I set it up? It's 18' with 90 Yamaha, 80 lbs trolling motor. I have gotten into a little less than 1' of water before. I love fried flounder and would dam sure like to start catching some! Thanks for the info.

Will be great for the fall run but not so good for the summer time back waters

I agree with MR, but if its all you got to work with I'd go for it. Just be careful in the skinny water (stumps,barnacles=$$$$$$)

Thanks guys for the help. I have 3 differnt generators to use. Is that the the best way to go, or should I go 12volt. I have a Honda 2500, Coleman 1850, and a Generac 7500. Honda and Coleman are the quietest. Can you devulge some good spots for me to try?

I'd run the Honda 2500, but that is not a "Quiet" generator. It has no shielding.

EG Model





EN model







It has a 70db or 76db depending on which model you have.



The 2000 suitcase models have a 58db. That is a LOT of difference.

anything that floats will work for floundering (if you wanna go bad enough!) however that boat is gonna have a pretty deep draft so you won't be able to reach many prime spots. As for the spots to try, if the lights are in the water and you can see bottom you stand a chance. Killing fish in a spot someone pointed you to is not nearly as rewarding as killing fish in a spot you "discovered" on your own. Good Luck, Good Fishing, and look forward to seeing :takephoto when you score!
