Florida Lobstering
How to Add Bully Netting Lights to a Boat
This is a picture of our 2010 bully net lighting setup. We took an outdoor Compact Florescent Light (CFL) we picked up at Home Depot and attached it to some marine board. We added a plug and u-bolt and were done. We ran 3 of these things on a single 175 min marine battery from Bass Pro Shop for about 4 or 5 hours with no problem. Of course we used a second battery for the lights and not our main battery. Each of these bulbs put out the equivalent of a 1000 watt incandescent bulb and are almost a foot long yet only take 100 watts. We saw numerous other setups and found it sad to see how many other boats were using things like standard incandescent bulbs. There is no quicker way to drain your battery then to use inefficient bulbs.

On our flats boat we started off attaching one of our lights to the push pole using two u-bolts. We were forced to do this since the flats boat doesn't have a railing to attach the light to. This didn't last very long as the light was only a couple of inches above the water. Within a few hours the light stopped working after getting spashed a few too many times. At that point we switched to the FISHNLIGHT BL200 underwater fishing light with the Remora screw-less SeaSucker vacuum mount.
