Anyone know a good way to mount a spotlight in a jon boat? Something in the back of the boat that can be adjusted by the driver?

I second the golight. Adjust from my console, NO glare in the boat.

Build or buy a hard hat light and you'll throw rocks every other lighting source on the market. A must have especially for guys running mud rigs that stand while running.

Not for me. I run down channel but Im looking at the bank or tree line beside me. I want the light where the boat is going. Not where Im looking beside me. Thats just me.

I have the stancion mount, as my bow light was further set back, so to avoid the glare stancion mount worked.

Hard hat lights are the way to go!! What's the point of having a light pointing in the direction your not looking?

The boat is going the same direction as the light is pointing. I am looking at the tree line to stay in the channel. I DONT want to run toward where Im looking.

I can still see the tree line in the dark because all the light glare is in front of me. Same reason head light are in front of your car and not inside.

I recently bought this at Cabelas. It works great in the garage but haven't used it on the water yet but I expect it to be better than my hand held. The picture shows a bar mount which I used but it includes a pedastal mount you could screw to your bench seat or side wall as well.
