Went gigging last night with FISHERMON, The flounder are still not in. We saw 1 bed, but was not a huge fish.We mainly went to try out the latest light setups. I revised my design. I moved the fuse holder under the end cap, I put some caps at the light end to prevent breaking the glass. Rewired with #12 wire with envirnmental splices, put copper battery clips. I also added male-female conectors for the switch in case you break the switch, you can simply plug the 2 connectors and bypass the switch. I am still using 2 50watt starfire lights i have tried them with 100watt bulbs not much brighter in shallow water. What do you all think of the set up? I painted them for kicks, however i predict the finish wont last forever but it looks cool. These light are far superior to the Walmart or bass proshops lights. Has 100watts of flounder frying power (cant compete with boats riged with a genie and tons of lights, but awsome for wading)

Pretty crafty in my opinion! When I used underwater lights, it always seemed to be an issue if they were to bump a log or concrete and that looks like a really good way to protect them. When's the sea trial? The mals should still be in the bays, just that water is sooo cold, it makes me want to eat chicken! lol! Hope you have a great report when you hit the water with them!

the only thing i see i would have done different is to put a little bit of a bend right before the light. to kick the light out in front of me a little more. looks good

another awesome night walk....

wading, walking the water is a whole different monster.....pretty cool anddef. you have a true feel for prime flounder territory.... on long walks you can feel sand chanhing density, even water temperatures and you can anticipate a track or two in the process..very cool indeed. Thanks Jim, lights worked great.

Have you had any problem with yanking the clips off the battery?



I usually get rid of Clips like that and go with Ring terminals and wing nuts on the battery stud.



The rest of it looks pretty good. I used 2 of those lights when I started.

I havent had a problem with the clips coming off the battery unless uoy trip on the wire, i have put small caribeners on the wire so you cant pull the terminals off easy. I havent got a boat as of yet i am looking at aluminum and skiffs looking for a deal.
