Default New light setup

After running different 12v setups over the years i decided to spend a little money and run the setup you "pros" use. I had been using led bars, but they didnt work well in dirty water and the ease of adjustment for different depths/conditions was beginning to get aggravating. So i decided to put the honda genny i already had to use with Hubbell 450 hps. A special thanks to Bamafan for his recommendation on these lights! Will be trying them out at St Joe this weekend if work and weather allows. Have fired them up several times in the yard-everytime i think to myself "and God said let there be light". There is so much of it that it should be illegal!!! Thanks again to bamafan and as you can see i had a "supervisor" who was no help at all.

Kmerr, they will be able to track you from space.I'm on mt 7th year with my hubbels and you won't be disapointed. Couple of ideas that have worked for most of us.paint your reflectors with high temp white engine paint. sounds crazy, but you will have even more light and your spread will be better. I just this year painted the exterior of mine with truck bed dressing and they turned out great/like new. salt can't get through it.Love Port St Joe and my largest fish came from there. If you don't know it be careful, alot of skinny water flats.Your setup is perfect and like looking at my own rig. I did after several years have some mounts made for my lights, but the glassed 2by4 worked great.
Good Luck

Nice looking setup on your boat. And those flounder on the table looked great too.
