Default Got me a new rig

Ok so I finally got me a new aluminum boat for "me" fishing. The question now is who has experience with the off-road light bars???? I'm about to light shit up.
I've got a good good battery that I spent some change on that has 225 minutes at 23 amps. So I can get two light bars with 60 degree flood beams with 5500 lumens each drawing 4 amps a hour. From my math I figure I can get 6-7 hrs of light out of a charge? Is this about right? Also has anyone used the off-road bars for floundering yet?

Unless you can find some with extremely low color temps you may be disappointed at the water penetration. Most of the light bars are "extremely" white. It will suffice in gin clear water but anything less will give you problems. Have you thought about extra warm, 50 watt LED floods?

Hunter makes a good point to consider. I wasn't sure about light penetration couple of years ago, till I went on his boat. I changed the very next week.
Good lookin boat. Good luck on the build. Paint looks awesome.

No but that's exactly why I asked. So I need to look for a warm led flood light?

Yes warm white. THEY should be around 4200 to 4800 lumens if I remember right. Go to eBay type in 50 watt 12volt led.
You can get a better price.

That's them. I've been running 6 of them for the last few years. They're legit. I'm going to HPS though because of fishing 3-4 consecutive nights during busy season and I'm tired of having to stress over getting batteries charged back every day. For rec fishing though; can't beat them IMO.
