Bowfishing Lights?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I purchased a 17.5' Alumacraft Phantom bass style boat this winter as a fishing boat. However with the large casting platform upfront Id like it to be a dual bowfishing boat as well. I just purchased a 70# 24v bow mount trolling motor and a used yamaha 1000 generator to run lights. My question is what type of lights should I purchase? I would like the lights to be detachable so I can easily take them off when Im angling. My boat currently doesn't have any type of running bar up front to mount lights on so Im looking for ideas there also. Thanks for any help!

Well you have a small genny thats gonna be an issue if you want to go cheap.. For that small and get some actual lighting your gonna need to do hps or mh.. And go with 150s... For halogens To get multiple lights to cover good area your fonna have to use 150s. Even though they suck same watts the luems are what youre looking for and hps bypasses halogens by far..

I use off road led lights. I run a half dozen of em off a battery. They drain little to no juice. The ones I use are about $15 each on Amazon. I took some 2x4s and made a mounting system that I can hold on my boat very nicely with a few C clamps. The lights come in 60° and 30°. They light it up way better than I was expecting when I bought them.

If you wanted to spend more money they also sell led light bars that are crazy bright but $60 is the cheapest I have seen for any quality.

Thanks, ya thats what I went with. Bought 8 50watt LED's off an LED wholesaler. And I am going to build a mouting system with 2x4's and C clamps. At 400 watts it will be plenty bright and I will have plenty of generator.
