Would it be possible to use this when you are anchored and jigging in the open water season??? Thanks for the help.

Yes, if you're not drifting around too much in the breeze. I've seen flashers used on docks, over the side of boats when jigging, or through canoe hulls in boundary waters or canoe-only access lakes. If you do a search, you might find some rigging and use posts on the subject of open water use of ice flashers. I remember someone jimmy-rigged a swing out arm to accomodate for the long summer rods used for jigging.

Good luck.

They work fine in open water conditions. I have used my flasher numerous times in a boat before I got a portable unit for the boat.

i've used my marcum all sesaon in the canoe and it will work just like on the ice as long as you are under 4 mph or you would have to attach the transducer to the boat so it wont swing out
