LED lighting

8 posts in this topic

I have been using a rv incandesent bulb in a clamp light in my portable. Is there some type of LED that will fit into this socket ???

they do make them, but they are kind of spendy. They do put out a lot of light with low wattage though. probably worth the investment. Otherwise, I'd invest in some of the "superbrightleds" wink.gif from hong kong that other FMers have ordered online.

THere is a clamp on LED light you can buy (they have it at 2 stores here in DL) that put's out some light. On the big auction website do a search for "ufo led" and you will find some inexpesive suacer shaped lights with up to 60 led's in them that have magnets or you can hang from your portable. Up to 50 hours on 4 double a's.

I use the rope lights in my house I got from a local "store" and am not happy with the amount of light it gives off. I think I need to add dome other 12 volt lighting.

Oh well.

I have some LED string lights as well, actually 2 6 foot pieces in my portable. The lighting is good, but I think the reflectix helps quite a bit. One thing I do not like is that the wire sheath on them cracks and the copper is exposed. I have had a couple meltdowns where the two bare wires touch while the leads are attached to the battery. I'll need to find a way to fix it permanently. Hit, I have used some 12V flourescent lighting that puts out more light than the LED's, may be an idea. If you are talking about the permanent, LED lighting is way to dim; incandescent is the only way you'll get enough light.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.
