I use a couple of different methods....

1. I spear alot out of my QF 3 so no light is needed.

2. I have a coleman propane lantern that runs off of one pound cylinders. It puts out an unbeliveable amount of light even on a low setting.

3. When there is enough ice we will either take a battery along or hook up to the truck battery with a cable with two clips to power a low wattage light bulb. Works very slick as we have a hook on the lightbulb set up that attahces right to the roof of the house and gives good equal lighting.

Hope this helps!

What Buddah said. You can pick up 48 led ufo lights that run on 3 aa batteries at northern tool for about 10 or 12 bucks each. A good way to hang them is use the velcro hook system that frabill makes (pick them up anywhere they sell frabill products for around 5.99 for a set of two). The hooks attach to your poles with velcro,(wrap around them, very sturdy.) and can even fold up in your shack. I use two of the lights in my portable and they are awesome. Lightweight, compact and very portable. (I just put the lights in my gear bag, and hang them when needed) Good luck with your new Quickfish!

In my flipovers I like to use Frabill hooks to hang my jacket (I have the old style w/o velcro), rod bag, gas lanten, etc. Is the poles on thes hub style shacks strong enough to hang your gear from without having to worry about the tent sagging or a pole getting messed up?? I'm considering getting one of these but want to make sure I don't have to put everything on the floor/ice where it can get in the way or wet.

Good Morning,

I have an Otter Wilderness Walleye flip over. I have some nylon strapping with hooks that slide over the square tubes. Then I bought an LED camp light that I hook on it. It runs on a couple of AAA or AA batteries. That provides great light. When done fishing, unhook it and put it in the pail. I think the light was 7 or 8 bucks. It is round and looks like a spaceship. That works for me. You might need a couple for a larger house. Have a good day.

Thanks, Bruce

I just picked up a river rock LED lantern from Target for my Otter Den. The thing is awesome and I think it would work well for you too.

    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
    • Ever been to Stevens Point or Wisconsin Rapids? 
    •   Maybe an "Inter-continental" belt is on the line here.....
    •   Probably no worse then the paper sludge biwaste that was coming out of that plant a few years ago!
    • Well it looks like we got out of expansion is pretty darn good shape. Haula + Tuch and we got a 3rd coming back to us, not bad at all. Tuch is no throw away prospect and could become a heck of a player some day but I feel like we still were able to keep our better prospects and center prospects which is big for us. Sounds like we still might move a D man to clear some cap space so maybe more fireworks to come. 
    • Thanks guys, appreciate the info!
    • Only so many heartbeats, lol.  Probably some study on hummingbirds or something and now the same rules apply to us and our consistent environment filled with healthy choices that are necessities for survival, just like a hummingbirds....  This was probably published by a group of medical providers that want to make you think it doesnt matter if you're lazy, fat, and dependent on "conditioned answers" to life's health and wellness questions and you will seek their "advice" when becoming ill.    
    • i've never done the plastic thing. but i've taken Reb's advice on planting grass, in particular filling in spots and its turned out great. so this is going to really hurt to say this, but Reb really knows what he's talking about when it comes to his lawn. i've also seen pictures.
    •   Right next to the river, no less.  Isn't anyone from the EPA concerned about this?
