What kind of night light do you use?

Recommended Posts

I would like to hear from people out there as to what kind of light you use while on the ice or in the shack. I have used candles, battery lights, gas lanterns etc. The best thing for light is probably the ole gas mantle Coleman. But I am tired of taking it out, and then try to tie new mantles on with a mini mag in my teeth, with the wind blowing up my back. There must be a better way.

I use the coleman 2 mantle light for my main source. I also bought a Princeton Tech light last year which is a head mounted lamp. its great for tying jigs, changing fuel bottles, or lighting the way when its time to tear down and I've put out the coleman. Its plenty bright and the beam is adjustable. I purchased it off of the ice fishing link above. Bill

I use a cheap flourescent light that I got at an auto parts store. It has alligator clips and a cig lighter adaptor. It's tied to the inside of my Otter Lodge and I have a battery secured into the corner of the sled. Perfect light, not too much, not too little. Works great for recharging glow lures!!

I have a explorer that I hooked 12 volt lights up to on the poles, and a keep a deep cycle in the sled. Two little clips, and you got more than enough light.

    • changing it up this year. the pork loin jerky is so dang good all the venny that isnt a steak is going to burger and sausage.   I hope to try your recipe bob on the pork. I bet it will be nice. I gotta o 24 hours tho for whole meat in brine.
    • It wasn't apparent if you meant to turn the fridge into a pellet smoker or some other type of smoker.
    • It's good stuff. I use it with chicken, pork, beef, venison, fish, you name it. I can get it locally at Elden's in Alexandria. 
    • nice indeed to have the height and storage. stand and smoker sat in garage 4 years. He made me a nice deal. 
    • Dave, does get a little crazy on the smoker deal.  Almost Religious! 😁
    • Lol. That's exactly what I just said but thanks.👍
    • You can turn an old refrigerator into a pellet smoker....      
    • I bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40" last winter and ended up giving it to a friend of mine to have at his cabin. They are fine, don't get me wrong but I just wasn't happy with the ribs I made in there as opposed to a charcoal smoker. It is ironic that Leech made the comment about a vertical pellet smoker needing to be refilled often because that is one of the things I didn't like about my MES. Maybe Leech's Char Broil has a bigger wood chip hopper but the MES had to be filled about every 20 minutes to keep smoke rolling.   I'm not against electric smokers and if that is what I had started out on I would probably still be using it but I found that instead of having a minimum of 3 pieces of grilling equipment to store and maintain, I can do everything I need to do with just a pellet grill and still have the ease of set it and forget it like an electric smoker. If I needed a very large cooking space I wouldn't hesitate to pick up one of those Pit Boss verticals even if I ended up changing out the controller for something with better temp control.
    • A local company here, AEM mapping, has completed mapping the lower basin of lake winnipeg, from winnipeg beach across to the east side, and down to the mouth of the red river. The lower red river from Lockport to the mouth has also been mapped. The structure they found, and the detail is astounding and will be a game changer, especially for folks coming up and have a limited amount of time to fish.  The red is available through hummingbird right now, the AEM maps chips of the red and lake winnipeg are compatable with lowrance units only. A full list of compatable units can be found on their site.  Chips will be available mid December, pricing will be announced shortly.
    • I have had a few electric smokers but if I ever change that up I will definitely go to a pellet smoker. I have had my mind set on making one from an old refrigerator but these bigger pit boss models might just be the ticket.
