I was able to go a few times for a couple of hours after I got my lights set up. Water was so murky because of all the rain we had last fall, but when it cleared up I could see pretty good. I was also standing up using the gig to pole, but my 61 year old knees are a little shakey. Anyway I'm looking forward to next season and am checking out some promising spots while I'm out hunting reds and specs.

Greg, know what you mean with the knees. I'm 59 and it's hard on me too. Your light set-up looks great and no reason you should not be able to find them. I used mine mostly in the back bayous and did pretty well. I tried it at Orange Beach and found out real quick that I needed the hp of the boat. Caught with the tide going out one night and thought I was going to end up in Cuba. Paddling as hard as I could and going backward.Finally got close enough to a dock to hang on till it quit ripping.Really enjoy floundering out of the yak and it ws nothing to pole. Your light set-up is by far more than I was using. I was running two aquastar 100 watt lights and your coverage will be alot better.
