Troo shine LED strip lights. Can get them in different lighted lengths and come wired up with clips. Have sticky back and Velcro for install. I’ve had them in my one man flip for 3 years now and there are SUPER bright last a long time running off the flasher battery and hold up great. Only downside is there about $30-$40 but well worth it.

If you have a Hub style house, I absolutely love the Clam Hub Light. It's expensive, but it's super bright and mounts in the center of the ceiling so it lights up the whole hub and doesn't cast any shadows.  It also connects to your flasher battery, so you don't have to worry about bringing extra AA or AAAs with.

+1 on the Clam Hub light.  Works great in my Otter flipover.  I just hang it from a Frabil coat hook on the support bar using the eye bolt that comes with it for the hub install.  Allows for easy adjustment/repositioning of the light to get it where you want it.

Are the Otter brand LED strips any good? Saw them a few places and they are over $50.

Picked some up but have not had a chance to try. Really like the dimmer switch and that they are a 1000 lumen.

I use an RV light with 54 strip LED's that prodeces 60 watt light using 11 watts power. Use my M18 drill battery with a 12v Mwlk adapter. Put the light between one of the cealing barrs and cealing with battery in cealing net of mr Eskimo 949i Hub. Light has dimmer so light reduces bt 75% when less light is needed.

Clam light sticks work great if your house has frame pipes.   You can splice them in anywhere on the frame and they are out of the way and protected.  Give off excellent light also.  i use 3 in my porty and,  one on top and one on each side.

      Poor people shouldn't be going to RESORTS.   That's what makes them poor people.  They should be fishing the free waters near their home.  If it sucks, they should do something about it, whether that is lobby the government to have someone else pay to fix it, or earn some extra cash and go somewhere that has fish.     I grew up broke, and didn't like it.  So as soon as I could drive, I worked my tail to the bone and changed my situation.  I didn't go on my first "resort" quality fishing trip until I was 25.

      The forums used to be cool 5-10 years ago and people shared some, but yeah the last few years they have almost died when it comes to regional and lake information.  Even sharing information at the bait shop or tackle store has pretty much become taboo, its too bad sometimes as that was a good way to meet new people back in the day.    This 40 degree weather and sunny this weekend will probably wreck any chance of good ice soon.  Not happy about that to be honest.

      Say what you will but since ice fishing took off over 20 years ago several resort operators I know on Lotw have made out like bandits. Their business has almost quadrupled using the same cabins and adding some fish houses. I'm fully aware of what it takes to run these places.

      I have 5 Wild Game trail cameras and have had very good luck with them.  For the lower price they are a decent option.  I also have a Moultrie, Hunten, Wildview, Primos, and Bushnell.  My first 3 cameras ran on C-size batteries which were very expensive, so I replaced them with AA-battery cameras.

      Copied from the other side but still, congrats. 😊   10 years is a notable anniversary.  Congrats!    I was checking to see how many I recognized.  A fair amount.  Then I saw you did catch me.
