Well the lights worked great,on lil problem,the trolling motor hits the one in the middle.And I got my first flounder of the year! I did see two smaller ones, around 8-10 inches.
I'll tell ya one thing those 3 lights eat a battery up pretty quick.It is an older bat, so maybe it needs replacing.

Look's very similar to a 12V setup I use to have.

I didn't hinge them, but I also never drilled any holes in the boat, so that it could be put back all original.

X-shark most of the idea came from your setup,the hinges was my ol' lady's idea And this ol boat has so many holes drilled in the top cap a few more wont hurt it.Even the transom has holes besides the motor mounting.Clear silicone does wonders on sanded gelcoat. One day I hope to be able to get a nice boat,but till then this is what I have.I was in Auer marine the other day ogling a Key West 146 CC with a Evinrude 25 man that thing is nice,but 12K is alot of mulah,prolly closer to 13,500 with the addition of a trolly and taxes. Hey we can dream right?
I'll get pics of my flounder up in a few.

Very cool, glad you managed the first fish. Always a relief to see a few and get the stink off. Looks like that light setup will treat you well.

Never Flounder gigged before so please excuse my ignorance on the subject but, are these lights submersible? It really seem's like something I would love to get into in the near future.

Yes they are to be fully submerged before turning them on and your supposed to wait 1 full minute before removing them.The wind picked up so bad last night on me till they were coming out of the water along with the tolling motor.
