IF you do a search on them, last year or year before ALOT of people were complaining about the LED's dieing out or them just not being as bright as others on the Market, If you can wait (checks for ice) and I think you can, I would suggest [YouNeedAuthorization] lights, Dave AKA Hovermn has them in our Perminate and they light that thing up great, mabye one more strip and youd see us from the moon. The light is reall nice white light and the way they are set up in the perminate they dont produce any shadows. I on the other hand had found a "UFO" light that you can now find at just about any shop out there, I know Northern carries them now for around 10-15 bucks, they run off of Double A's but id bet if you had some knowdlege you could convert them. I have now gone almost a full year with out having to swap out my batteries, granted I dont stay out much past 7 or 8 as it seams the fishing really seamed to die off by them.

Zach....The GM ropes are as good of a rope light as commonly offered, and much less in cost than the Clam version ropes. Rope lights work in certain applications, and not so well in others.

Lots of good LED lighting available these days. New LED Work Light bars, and rechargeable 30/70 LED Work Lights are rolling out that I would recommend over rope any day.

The rechargeable work light system is high on my personal favorite systems out right now.

Are the Gander ones the "First Ice" brand? I got a couple strands of those for my portable a few years ago on sale for $6 each. Yeah, not all of the lights work but it's still plenty bright for my Otter Cabin when I run them off a spare flasher battery. I figured for $6 each I'd give them a try and they've been going strong for 3 seasons now.

I bought them also 3 years ago and a few have gone out but for the money they are fine.I put mine in alluminum c channel to keep them straight and all pointed down. The wiring isn't the best you just have to be a little carefull with em.

I have the gander LED in my portable and in my permanent. IT lights my portable FRABIL XL TWIN very well and is easy on battery. In my wheel house i mounted to the ceiling and use as night light( i added a toggle switch). This works VERY good. THE key is LED. I purchased form Dave Gentz a NON LED set and the lighting was very poor and takes a lot of battery. They had a close out for 6.00 and thought i would try. Got burned. LED all the way. I like the idea of the aluminum bar as it is tough to get the LED rope light situated to shine down at your holes. Especially when it is very cold and your lights are wound up in a circle.

Good luck

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
