I also wanted to add that "foil blanket" ceiling that I've read people talking about here. Does it have a specific name? or where would I get some?

Thanks again smile.gif

The LED technology has come a long way. For power consumption, you can't beat it. I'm trying to remember where I saw them but they make a 24 element head with an aligator type clip on them. I'll poke around and see what I come up with. On the same subject, you know those 12V power paks they sell now? Most of them have a built in work light, cig type plug, on board charger, and a batt meter. Those to me scream "Take me fishing!"

IceC, go to the Cabelas web site and type in space blanket and the item you are looking for will come up. They cost $9.99 and have a very tough backing on them that wont rip. They work great!

Get yourself one of those contruction lamps, (looks like a mixing bowl), it will have a little clamp on the back of it also. Put a 12v 50w bulb in it. Buy a cheap $2.99 extension cord and cut off the male end. Put 2 alligator clips where the male end of the extension cord was, plug your lamp into the female end of the extension cord and the alligator clips onto your trolling motor battery. I have this same set-up for my Otter and it works great. The battery gets heavy if you are pulling the sled by hand, but I pull my sled with a wheeler so anything goes. Just an idea for you.

I've used the 12v yard lights in the shack and they work good. Have to say my Aurora Tech head lamp works great too.
Bought on this site, not sure if Rich is still selling them here.

I just ordered the bonfire blaze tent lamp from REI. All LED's, supposed to be very bright but also has a dimmer level if wanted. 22 bucks. I should get it by early next week. I will let you all know what I think.

Thanks for the idea's guys smile.gifKeep'em coming! I was hoping to use my extra Vex battery,since I do pull my sled alot.And I think LED would be the way to go with that batt.I hope smile.gifI would really only need the lights for early morning,late night, so they wont be used all day.

I got the foil blanket and that alone really helps the lighting,but I need more.

Can I post links here??I've been searching the net and found some LED's that I think might work but wanted some other thoughts on them?

Glad I thought of this project now instead of November smile.gif

I have the older style 1 man Fishtrap, so it's small compared to the new ones, and I just use a small desk lamp and put a 12 volt bulb into it. Cut the plug and replace with alligator clips. Clip onto your vex battery and away you go.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.

      Went duck hunting at my dads house I missed the only duck in range. The we went grouse hunting and we put 6 miles walking in and flushed two grouse and a woodcock.
