These 3-watt port and starboard LED lights can be seen up to two miles away – and they are ABYC/USCG tested and approved with a IP-68 rating for “wet locations.” These low voltage LED lights also preserve battery life by drawing less than .25 amps.
These impact resistant, long-life LED lights with a 120 degree unobstructed view, will provide years of maintenance-free service on your 18′ to 35′ boat.

The Taco Marine sponsored Liquid Fire fishing team made the trip South to Pompano Beach and Sarasota, Florida for the first of three Pompano Saltwater Series fishing competitions of the season.
In preparing for the event, our team combed the South Florida seas, looking for blue runners and goggle eyes for bait in order to allow us to target the five different species that could be part of the event’s aggregate. Finding king mackerel, wahoo, backfin tuna, cobia and mahi-mahi was our goal for the week preceding the event. This fish ate a trolled blue runner in about 50 feet of water.
Fishing Tips: “During the Saltwater Shootout, we targeted our blackfin tuna while kite fishing in about 180 feet of water. The bite was a little slower during tournament day, but at the end of our first drift, we were able to raise our first tuna as a goggle eye dangled on the surface from the release clip. The fish weighed in at 20.8 pounds. As the seas conditions continued to deteriorate through the day, it was critical for us to be able to move our kite rods around the boat quickly to stay in touch with our baits. As we moved the Taco Marine rod cluster from the bow to stern during our second drift, another blackfin weighing 27.0 pounds, crashed on a bait. Crockett soon made quick work of the fish as he angled it to Joshua’s waiting gaff.
We will be traveling to the second leg of the Pompano Saltwater Series to fish the Saltwater Slam the end of May through the first week of June. Follow our tournament progress on this blog and to get fishing tips you can use – to get the catch of the day.”
