wow..how many watts do you have there....that's a lot of light...you can almost fry the flounder right on the spot....cool....very cool....what about the glare... do u get that much back at you or.... I guess your eyes will get used to it after a while uh!...On the generator: what kind/brand is it if you dont mind me asking....looks great man....thanks for sharing the pic.ALso, I was thinking....is there any kind of sun/nightglasses (clear that is) that will take the glare off the water ...just thought of that.

Nice set-up. That's the samelights I got on my rig. $8-10 apiece at Walmart and Lowes. If they get screwed up easy and cheap to replace.

I have had a few nights with out even seeing a track and other nights where I had to quit early do to the Florida Limit. I have launched in Alabama a few nights and killed well over the Florida limit.

I'm using a Colman power mate 1800generator with (1) 500 watt and (4) 300 watt lights. The generator handles the lights plus my on board charger (2 bank 6 amp)for my trolling batteries very well.

As far as the glare there is not one unless it's choppy. With two in the boat my lights are 3''-5'' off the water.

They are the Wal-mart lights for under $10.00 and can return them if the break.
