I never got around to installing the LEDs in my yukon last season, but I would like to get it done this year. After all the talk about how the clam LED rope lights weren't bright enough and the Gander Mountain lights being mostly junk I put the project off. What lights did you end up using and how did you install them? Did you run the wires through the tubes?

I was also thinking of installing a couple of 12V plugins on a base somewhere near the seat on the sled to plug in a cell phone, GPS, fan, etc.

I have been using the 1st ice lights ( got them on sale at gander last winter) since last winter in my bedroom for staying up on the computer and they work great and very good on battery life. Truthfully for the price I cant believe how good they are.

There are many LED lighting options for your portable.

Strip and standalone LED lighting is what I use, most people are not impressed with Rope LED lighting I know I wasn't.

Here are couple threads to get you going....

I use two 13 led lights in my Otter lodge and have then tied into an old extension cord with clips on the end. The light attaches to supports with adhesive Velco. I then slip the extention cord between the supports and the canvas and hook up to a small battery in the back of the tub. Has worked very well for me so far. I use the same system in my wife fishtrap pro using a single 13 led light. It's easy, quick and out of the way when I pack up.

Hello

I do have two of the rope light not to bright I went to a web site called super brite leds and bought four of the tube light they come with snap in bracket that you can mount to the poles but if you run the wires in the pole you can't get the poles to calapes so might just have to tape to the poles I use a small cigar box to put the small battery in vexlar and it works good stay away from the rope light not bright enough I think these new ones are a lot brighter

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
