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.

    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
