    This might be a really dumb ideal but here it goes, If you wanted a new boat could you get the manufacturer to make the bottom out of clear fiberglass with thousands of LED lights molded right in. This would be the perfect night fishing rig.

    Sounds to me like a giant Crappie light. What are your thoughts behind this?

    Thanks

    Amen, I like to actually keep the lights to a minimum at night due to the bugs. Pesky SOB's.

    All the lights would be shining down into the water it would be completely dark in the boat.

    you could have different strings of lights so you could control the output and battery drain.

    Come to think of it, you wouldn't have too much problem getting bait that way also, the light would draw the shad to the boat. Need bait? Use a dip net!

    Sounds like it might work to me. Maybe somebody will run with your idea.

    I've heard that about flatheads, but never found that to be the case for blues or channels.

    It has been done. The type of glass it takes to make it work with no problems, probably makes it way too expensive. That and i am way too mean to the botom of my boat. I'd rather have a high quality sonar unit.
