Definitely use the LED lights. Puck style ones are great for spot lighting, such as in holes. They are pretty indestructible and use significantly less power. You can find them pretty much everywhere nowadays.

Puck style are circular and mounted directly over the holes on the ceiling. They are great if you do not have a wall next to your holes. If there is a wall next to them go with wall mount ones instead of the overheads. I prefer the wall mount because you don't get your shadow over the hole when landing fish or looking at your bobber. When it comes to lights only buy LED lights. They are brighter and you seldom if ever need to replace them. I also recommend putting toggles on each individual light so you can have them off or on when needed. You won't regret it.

We use the Lodge fish houses at our resort. They use wall mounted hole lights in their units. The run a separate switch to light one side or the other side or both sides at once. Similar to theater lighting. As a dealer - if you'd like I can order them through the manufacturer (Distinct Builders) for you.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
