Need Lighting Advice.

Recommended Posts

Hey gang. I have a question for you all. I need to come up with a good nav light. Hand held isn't getting it. My hand held is a great light,but not very convenient. What can I do for a good mounted white light for navigating reservoirs / rivers that are prone to floating debris at night? I'd like to wire it directly into my console nav light switch. Spot? Flood? Low or high mounted? My stupid bow mount troller takes up so much of the front of the boat, that location is pretty much out of the question. Some of the most successful people locally are turning to night fishing almost exclusively,so I guess I need to smooth out the rig a little. Thanks!

Now that is sweet! I like it. It should be high enough to get up over the power drive troller too. Thanks!

Those are not legal everywhere. In Tennessee you can use them to assist tying up at a dock or when mooring but not while running on a lake. They blind other boaters with white light and are very dangerous to everyone but the user. They will get you a ticket here. Most fishermen here use handheld lights that can be switched on if you see something or think you see something and want to verify it, then switched back off. Even those are not legal but are commonly overlooked by the Wardens if used sparingly. The lakes in East Tennessee are loaded with night fishermen in the warmer months and if you turn on a light such as the one above you will cause someone to briefly loose their night vision, if they look at it, which causes danger for everyone. Pontoon boats running with their "docking lights" on are the biggest problem here because the operators think they are headlights. Wildlife Officers routinely patrol the lakes at night here looking for offenders, usually on weekends. If you use that light to navigate please use it sparingly for others safety as well as yours....My advice- If you can't see well enough at night don't venture out on the water. If it is overcast you may be safer staying home or going bowling, just saying
