Gigging lights
Mar 3rd, 2012 at 1:51pm
 
Looking to get creative with my gigging boat and it's lights, just looking for ideas and pictures of how you mount your lights. I'm only interested with lights that go in the water, nothing that shines on top of the water.

Thanks
CR

Look at light set up on this boat for sell. Pretty simple to build.

I made some modifications and used different lights, but you get the idea.

We copied this set up but made a few improvements on it IMHO .

If interested I can snap some shots and post them up .I put up a few shots when I started the build but did not seem to get much interest so I guess I forgot about posting the finished product.

I've never done gigging, but I am looking into bowfishing and shooting a flounder or two might be in my future. The pictures never tell the whole story, how far out does the light spread? 10ft? 15 maybe? Do they work well in murky waters?

here's mine, the 2x4 is held on with 2 ss bolts and wing nuts. I plan on replacing the bulbs with expensive led lights this season. It is a 12v system, quick and easy

Here is my current set up. It uses two Brinkman Starfire II bulbs, and Drop Light reflectors. I will be getting the LED lights from fishinglightsetc soon. If I were to change this at all, I would not put 90s on the tops of the vertical pipes, and go with clamps that would allow the lights to move up and down vertically. That way I can set them right off of the bottom. Also I have a small length of rope that I am using to tie to one of the vertical legs and attached to the bow ring to adjust the angle when pushing against the water. The reflectors create enough drag to over come my clamp idea as it is. But again, this is just a temporary set up. BTW, these are the 50watt bulbs, but apparently you can swap them with 100 watt bulbs.
