Flounder gigging question

Went gigging last night for the first time with a friend.. although we didnt do great due to conditions, I did enjoy it and am wanting to get in to it.

Where do I get a good light, and a good gig? I dont know the first thing about gear, or what's good and what's bad. Get me started!

I've run a flounder boat my whole adult life. My 2 cents is that a warm white (on the yellowish end of the spectrum) will give you the best results in the most conditions. A lot of walking lights have a pretty narrow beam - I'm not a fan of that. A lot of lights claim a lumen output that they just don't deliver.

Jerry's LED's makes a good quality light in a warm white, with a good wide spread, and legit lumen output. They are compact, so they won't be popping out above the surface all the time, and he sells some ready-made for walking. You might save a few bucks making one, but theirs are hard to beat. You might save a few bucks making one, but if you're like a lot of people, you'll spend just as much overall from trying one LED, then another, then another.

For walking in/ jumping out of the boat and walking shorelines we use 6000 lumen flashlights. Light weight and can also use around the house/ drive the boat at night and works better than qbeam.

$70 on amazon.

I am just using the flashlight posted above. My old man taught me with a lantern and this is a huge step up. Yes you can spend 100's if you have money to blow. Personally I do not.

Plenty of light to see flounder in knee-ankle deep which is where we do 90% of our gigging. All of these were stabbed in less than an hour.

Good luck, it sure is fun!
