    Using Green LED Shrimping Lights
    Shrimp Light Deployment

    For the River in a Fast Moving Current.

    You can Deploy your Gator-Tough™ lights in the River with a fast moving current, to boil shrimp up in front of your boat and into the KILL ZONE!!!

    Where you can dip net them up out of the water and into your boat!

    as the following diagram shows!


    Here is an example of how to deploy your lights...

    Proper Gator-Tough™ Light Deployment

    In River with a fast moving current


    You can Deploy your Gator-Tough™ lights in the River with a fast moving current,


    only with the lights on one side of your boat... and at the Bow and Stern...

    I like to anchor my boat up sideways

    as the following diagram shows!

    my below and above configuration work well in fast current… I recommend trying them... and see what works best for your shrimping style...



    I will also post my RRB configuration as soon as I sketch a few…. I say a few, because if close to the RRB or away from it, I use a different pattern configuration, and many more of my "GatorTough" LED Tub Lighting… Sometimes three - five on one side of the boat and more on the other side of the boat… Yep, we work both sides of the boat at the same time...

    Proper Gator-Tough™ Light Deployment

    For the (RRB) Railroad Bridge - Titusville


    You can place Gator-Tough™ lights all the way around your boat,

    mainly because there is no current at the (RRB) Railroad Bridge - Titusville

    I like to anchor my boat up sideways,

    as the following diagram shows!

    ANCHORING

    in Rocks or Structure...

    When shrimping in areas that have rocks and structure, using one or two anchor method, it is a good idea to use a Anchor Lift Rope attached to your Anchor... This will avoid you from loosing your anchor in the rocks or structure! Since the water when shrimping is only 12 ft or less...


    The lift rope goes on the back side of the anchor and lifts the anchor out backwards...

    as the following diagram shows!

    You can also use the green Led Gatortough shrimp lights for night fishing.

    Which green gator lights do most purchase, Does brighter mean better?

    keep it reel Lieutenant Commander

    When the water is murky or the catfish are laying on your lights, brighter is better.
    When we deploy our lights we try to put them as deep as we can so it gives us more of the water column to cover. Not all shrimp are on the top.
    If was buying lights now, I would get the brightest I could find.

    What would you suggest to use as an anchor for lights? I used 4" PVC filled with sand and capped, clean and worked fine with no current, but with current they are no good!

    I gotta go ahead and ask. Whats wrong with getting a few catfish while youre at it if theyre swarming like cats on mice? Is there a season? If not what would be the limit?
