LED lighting

Recommended Posts

WTN4ICE

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.

      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

      Congrats jfitz! I was in boat 85 in the big tiller Lund right behind you guys leaving the harbor. Our nice fish we had going completely disappeared on us.

      I hope you and your dad don’t mind passing along the story of your weekend. It’s a great story and defies conventional wisdom. Congratulations! The best fishermen have skill, intuition, and a little luck on their side.

      Welcome to to Fishing Minnesota, TheEyesofanAngler. My favorite lake for bass in our area is definitely Clearwater. It takes a bit to learn the lake, but the rewards are more than worth it.  Littlerock also holds some very nice Largemouth with a few bonus smallies mixed in... I know you said lakes and ponds, but the Mississippi here in town and  the sections above the Sartell and Blanchard dams all are exelent smallmouth fisheries.

      Was it a G.Loomis Conquest Mag Bass rod with a Shimano® Calcutta Conquest reel on it?  That would be mine!

      I have snorkeled on head o lakes (off our beach) and it is usually ok.   Not Hawaii clear but 5 to 10 feet visibility....  OK, maybe 10 is a stretch, but pretty good.
