The Best Light Set Up For a Bowfishing Boat
When it comes to setting up your bowfishing boat, light placement is key. There's a few different ways you can set your boat up depending on the size of your boat as well as the lights. In this article we'll show you the most common setups our Pro Staff Members and customers use when rigging up their Swamp Eye Light Bars to their bowfishing boats.
Most of our Pro Staff Members are bowfishing guides so they rely heavily on the performance of their equipment.
Our Swamp Eye Light Bars are 24" wide bolt to bolt on the mounting brackets so the most common set up we see is two light bars in the front and two on each side of the boat for a total of 6 lights.
Having lights on all sides is a popular choice because it eliminates shadows and ensures full visibility for all standing on the shooting platform.
Now, if your boat has a raised platform then light placement is especially important because you have a wider flood range which means there's less chance of shadows between lights. Our pro staff member, Doug Whitehead, made excellent use of his raised platform!
For those of you whose boat has a raised platform but the lights are typically underneath we have setup for that as well.
As you can see, there are many different ways you can rig lights up to your bowfishing boat. It all comes down to the size of your boat and where the best mounting surface is. Below are some more examples of bowfishing setups.
