I use the light strip, really good deal here. It hooks right up to battery, just zip tie or Velcro strap it to your poles.

That would have been a good option! I like that it has a solid enclosure and isn't just a strip of LEDs.  Maybe i'll consider that for my next one ;-)

I just changed from a Clam Denali to a hub.  Lighting is very important, so I started scheming.  (Half the fun of ice fishing!) came up with a post light, kind of like a landscape light, of course this is just intended to be used inside the hub.  We like to fish with minimal light meaning "light where it is needed" so...using the anchor drill, very easy to post a light where ever you want it.  Built a central power hub for lights and a fan, plus a cigarette lighter port for charging phones, etc.

Cheap, easy to use batteries last many trips, magnet on the bottom allow for you stick on the truck while loading, has a hook on th bottom as well, and you can adjust where the light goes with to bars that fold out.

A lot of nice options here. Any new ideas?

If you go to Costco, they have a pack of 6 of these led lights, with batteries and a remote, and some velcro tape for around 15 bucks.

That is a cd for scale in second picture.   Remote allows adjustable brightness.

Got an RV light, replaced insides with 5050 Brite White LED. 9 strips at 6 lights each. Produces 1136 Lumens, equivalent to 75 Watt Incandescent. Draws about 10 watts so it runs 6 to 7 hours on my 5ah Lead Acid (AKA Vex) battery. Built a multi-function holder to ride on the front of my Smitty Sled shining light when walking out. Shove the light between roof and support rod, toss battery in Screen shelve for inside Hub lighting. Holder also holds my ShowDown Troller or 10" tablet I use with Boating App and Vex FishPhone. Holder held down with 7# bean bag (or should I say sinker bag) and non skid base.

Looks sort of heavy... What kind of batteries does it run off of?

Looks like it weighs 14.4 ounces and 3 D batteries is what I found on Amazon

Sounds heavy, I'll stick with what I've got ;-)

You will even it out once you drink a 16oz beer :2c: 

I never thought to myself that man this slight is heavy

I guess I always looked at it as a quality light

I was just thinking the weight hanging from the top of the hub might collapse the roof??

I just posted under the led light strip topic about where I get lights from. But for a hub style house you could always pickup a led type light used for mounting on a vehicle. Attach some longer wires to a switch and the battery, put a clamp on the light and it could pack away nicely while moving.  

I broke to many lanterns dragging across the lake that this is my system now and couldn't be happier

I've got a 3' strip of LED's I run on a spare vex battery. This lights up my Eskimo 6120i without being TOOOOOO bright lol. It is pretty bright though and its durable enough to roll up and put it in my rod bag pocket.

No way at least not with mine I run the clam JM 5000 Hang it from the roof all the time along with my jacket I stick in between the poles. Im pretty sure you could hang 10 of these lights up and it wouldn't collapse it.

 

I have hung a propane lantern with a 1lb tank from my hub with out even thinking it would collapse it.

A very similar thing, probably from same chinese factory :D, under "snap on" brand at Costco for 29.95, if you have access to a costco, or costco.com

I bought one and it is pretty bright.  Maybe too bright, unless you are doing some painting inside the HSOList.

Good price.  You just need a $1000 generator to run it - or a good current bush...

Nope, The one I was thinking of was rechargeable.   I  posted the wrong item, however.  My bad. 

 

The one I was thinking of was by "CAT" and cost 29.95 also but must have been seasonal since it is no longer on the site. 

 

You could probably run the snap on one from an inverter.  

 

I apologize for the confusion caused by my posting the wrong product.   Keep an eye out next year, if you are near a Costco.  

 

Looks a lot like this one from Amazon

Home Depot has a similar rechargeable light, but it's only 250 lumens, and the cost is about $50.  

 

Here's another one on Amazon for $25.  Says it's 15 watts..

    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
    • I like that you caught someone else taking photos of the feast too!
    • That's an impressive pile o meat smallie!! Wow did I start a ruckus with a misspelled word, I'll be more kareful next time!!😉
    • Looks like kind of an expensive grill though.........😱
