Also, for smaller boats.

I know from experience, weight hurts you.

3 battery's mounted low in the boat is a lot better than 1 generator at half the weight sitting on the bench.

Also, I'd your not fishing for huge amounts of time (like all night long) and your in a smaller boat.

Realistically LEDs and a troller would be ideal. Because you would likely be done fishing before the lights dim or the troller loses significant thrust.

There is no right answer, its all up to what your content with. How you fish, the time, and what you want.

Whether it be LEDs in a 1448, or hps in a 2072 fan boat and all in between or vice versa If your happy with what yah got. Then I'm happy with what you got!

Hi everyone,

Here is the solution you seem to be looking to eliminate LED reflection. Goto ebay and type in "Carplite" in the main search box. They sell HPS or Green colored filter covers for 50W LED lights. Also have Custom sizes if needed for other types of light frame sizes. I used them and made a world of difference. I bought one at first just to try out and bought ten after that. Got the best worlds of using LEDs with the color of HPS to better penetrate the water and reduce glare. They are made from transparent plexiglass so much much more durable than tint/film. And you can easily remove these in seconds if you want the bright light back for clear water. Much cheaper alternative than going HPS with all the extra bulbs, capaitors, genny, difficult wiring and weight, etc. Hope this helps, just wanted to share what I have found to everyone who had the same issues I had.

Here is the link:
