Nice set up!

So you have that on each side? What size battery do you run?

Would like info on the lights as well.

I bought the lights on e-bay

New LED Underwater Spot Light 10W 12V 900-1000LM White Light for Aquarium Pool

Battery also on e-bay

Sell one like this
UPG 12V 35AH Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) Battery for UB12350 Invacare PRONTO M50 M6 M


Havn't put it in the water yet, just finished it this afternoon. I made two frames, one for each side. 4 lights should draw around 3.5 amps. 35 amp/hour batter theroreticaly lasts 10 hours. I will try to post a few more pictures to give you ideas to help build your own.

Do you get enough light to see the founder with these two lights. Excellent photos of your rig and the flounder system. bob

I have not put it in the water yet, but I am pretty confident. The leds put out a lot of light and since they will be underwater they will work much better than if they had to shine down through the water. This will also eliminate glare so contrast will be better. Guess I won't really know for sure until the water clears up a little and I get a chance to try it out. I do have a led light I use for wading. These lights seem brighter and there are four of them.

Lookin forward to the report on these lights.. The wife wont let me spend any more money on the boat til we move this month, so my set-up won't be ready for a while. Good Idea on the mount too..

Took the yak and flounder lights out tonight for a test run. Put in a Floridatown. Steady wind out of the southwest made for a pretty good chop and the water was as muddy as I have seen it, even in deeper water. The good news is the lights worked just fine. The bad news is I don't think you could have seen the bottom with the best flounder lights out there. Jury is still out on how well this rig works until I can go in better conditions.
