Ive got a setup that works well but Im looking for a setup or housingthat will allow me to change bulbs with less of a hassle. Mine arepretty much sealed units with silicone/epoxy.Im running2-110V 500w mini candulara halogen bulbs (underwater) along with 2-500w above water lamps. Any help or new ideasis appreciated!

Yea but do you really need 2000 watts. Im running just 2 starfires and I'm happy.

I don't think more light = more fish. More luck and knowledge= more fish. How wet does you generaator get in that boat?:doh

HeHe If you can't see'em, you can't stick'em. I've had your setup in the past. [1st time the boat was rigged]



Now I have 1600watts of light.



I have rerigged my boat 3 different times over the years now. It will be rerigged next year after this season. Each time more improvements are made to have better lighting.



this next rework will add a 80lb thrust 24V TM and I'm planning on a few metal halide lights. These lights are not cheap. Aprox $120ea for 400watt units.

As you can tell my boat/setup isnt based on what I need. If that were the case then you would be looking at a 10' Jon boat with 2 starfires from walmart duct taped on the bow. Some people are happy with vieanna sausages and others prefer filet? Go figure.. the generator doesnt get wet. Actually the generator in the picture isnt the one I use. That one was a little loud so I went to a 2000w Honda did I need to? No, but its sure is nice!!!

X-shark Ill snap a few close up pics! Im running a 24V 80lb Minn Kota with the "Co-Pilot" it works well but I wish I had the "auto pilot" also.

Not trying to be ugly here but I bet you I have gigged more flounder out of my Vieanna Sasuage john boat this year than you will gigg if you fish evey night at the pass for the month of November. This is how the poor people do it. Look close and you will see the duck tape holding my troling motor on the side of the boat. Good luck to ya!

Think you might have missed the point of his post - basically, different strokes for different folks. He wasn't bashing jon boat setups ortheir ability to gig fish because we all know it's not all in the setup. He's simply lookingfor a little advice here on how to perfect his particular setup, which just happens not to be a jon boat.

DFAmine and Josh's relationship is none of your business. The reason I replied to this thread is Josh was looking for some insight on how to make his flounder rig better and Midnight made some smartass comment we all know you and midnight are God's gift to sticking flounder. I will say my comment was a little out of line it just bothers me when someone is looking for help and all they get are smartass comments.
