Has anybody ever tried using a floating or submersible light at night while crappie/walleye fishing? Were you successful? I know its illegal to use them in MN, but its legal in Wisconsin where my cabin is located.

Was thinking about giving it a whirl next weekend when i go up.

It attracts insects, that attract baitfish, which attacts predator fish. When I was a boy spending time in Texas it worked very well.

I would be interested to hear if this works as well...  If it created lights out fishing, no pun intended, it would almost be like cheating...

When i finally tried it a couple weeks back it didn't create lights out fishing, but i do think it helped. The plankton showed up first, the bigger bait fish showed up next, and the predators hung out outside the cirlce of light. I caught a couple nice walleyes on a floating jig head casting just outside the area of light. While this could be coincidental, i'm chalking it up to the light at least helping a little bit.

    • get lottsa oil sunflowers out. they will come.  Just has a fox sparrow fly in.  White thoats and song sparrows should be close behind. 
    • Scare some 50 miles north Eyeguy. 
    • Couple of questions/comments... Check the draw on your AC. I assume that 15amp @ 14 awg will be good enough, but would be good to confirm. Make sure to look at the draw at start up. Have you gotten the 12 ga THNN wire yet? Seems like a lot of the companies tend to oversell the gauge of the wire. It looks like you have overkilled the gauge requirement for most of your DC circuits (i.e. lights) which is good, but if you feel it is lightweight, you might want to step up your furnace and DC outlets again Hard to tell from the schematic, but you are running both ground and positive back to the source correct? I wouldn't start tying ground circuits together. Every connector that you put in a wall is a potential fail. Obviously it is unavoidable for items on the same circuit, but the schematic looks like you are tying grounds across circuits. Just a follow on to the previous comment.... Are you spray foaming or doing batts/foam board? We did spray foam "from the outside in" against the tongue and grove before we sided it. For that reason, we cut PVC and used it as a junction boxed and then taped the ends of the PVC before foaming. All connections occur in these boxes... that way we can get to them "if" some butt connector causes a problem or we need change out something (had a few hold lights fail, and this work awesome to replace) Are you putting your hole lights on a switch? Didn't see one in the drawing Are you using pancake style ceiling lights? I was wondering if you had the capability to turn them off individually if desired. Another comment on the same topic. We put in a 3-way for the ceiling lights so that we have one switch by the entry door and one by the back bunk.... Is definitely nice when the rattle reels go off at 2 am! These are just somethings that we did... along with some things that we should have did - but it looks like you have put a lot of thought into this. It is definitely easier to do things the right way first!
    • Usually first part of may they get here. Tons of finches here yet. And juncos and the regular wood peckers. Hopefully see some cool new ones soon. 
    • Any word on Orioles heading north yet? I'm still a sterile bird void at my feeders. 
    • I'm washing every wall and ceiling in the house .... and it's kickin my butt. Pass the Advil.  
    • Well, something is broken. These links should have worked. It's been strangly inconsistant this way all along. The 2nd and 3rd are from the Ben Harper video already posted so ... yea its broken. Too bad.   https://youtu.be/Wck03Y72340   https://youtu.be/4B-VMr2-228 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B-VMr2-228  
    • Interesting, I found some info online about it.   I went to Rosemount HS.  
    • waytekwire.com has great wire plus other supplies, and is local. Puts regular store wire to shame.
    • Was curious is all,  billy goat was the bridge on parkway.
