When fishing at night, what do you guys use for a forward facing light? I just made my first voyage night trolling and I was very uncomfortable with my setup. Only being able to see roughly 20ft total beyond the bow. I used a old school probably 500watt offroad cigarette lighter powered light. Any input would be appreciated!

I have a GoLight, I purchased it about five years ago when I had a camp on the Trent River in the Kawartha Lakes. Returning to camp in the dark was dangerous because the river has lots of buoys. The first night I used it I came upon a guy fishing in the dark in a paddle boat with no navigation lights. About a month later I stumble upon a couple making out in the middle of the lake with the navigation lights turned off. This light is powerful, it would easily light up two buoys ahead of me. It operates remotely, turns nearly 360 degrees and moves up and down.

That's a nice unit! 5 years old seems it would last so worth the price. The fact it turns remotely is very cool. Thanks for the input!

It really comes in handy at night, you can shine it directly into the boat whenever you catch a fish.

That'd be handy as well. When warm the ability to keep the bugs at the bow would be nice I bet.

x2 on the GoLight. I opted for their magnetic base. I`ve seen them up for sale at the LOU web site and FleaBay.
