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

    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
