My husband and I are wanting to take our boat out at night for some catfishing and we are looking for a spotlight. What do you guys use and what would you recommend? I have searched around and found some good prospects on this site, but I am still not sure which to purchase. https://campingmoz.com/best-boat-spotlight/ I would love to hear your input. Thanks!:o

Ayuh,..... I carried a portable spotlight on my barge for 20 years, 'n never used it,.....

I suggest ya look for an led unit, as leds draw very little battery power, compared to older spotlights,.....

Definitely LED. Also, use a secondary battery for the auxiliary lights. Leave your starting battery completely isolated so you don't run the risk of draining it and then you're stuck unable to start the engine. Well, I guess you could rope start if it's a smaller outboard, but that can be a tall task sometimes.
