Marcum Technologies is basically the same group of engineers that started both Zercom (before it was sold to Techsonic parent of Humminbird), and Aqua-vu before it was sold. I have a Colorpoint which quite a few people don't like, but I have had great sucess with mine. I am planning to add an LX3 and an OVS 500 camera this season. The LX3 has not had much exposure in actual use as of yet, but if it performs the way the engineers are planning it will be an amazing device. The OVS camera is the only one that has been shown to work in stained water (LOW and Rainy) your not gonna see 10' but it is much improved over the current offerings from others. Being a technology guy I tend to play with the new stuff, it gives me something to do when I am not on the water (or in the water). Some people don't like being a ginny pig, I guess its second nature to me.

I contacted Marcum to see if I could get different transducers, narrow beam or dual beam but no answer yet. I'm not going to wait to much longer, or its going to be a FL-18.

Im a FL8 owner now and it has been great for the ten years that Ive had it but Im thinking of upgrading.Ive read all the great reviews on the FL18 and Ive heard lots of great things on Vexilars repair policies so Im leaming that way! BUT Marcum has the features that I really want,but if there service stinks I dont want the unit!

Sorry Rick, New to the site (but I have ordered an ice saw, ice busters and the big dipper already). I should have read the policies on posting web addresses. Not trying to advertise and I completely understand about the cost to run the site. I will send you a DS3 to make up, Or maybe some DSL ;-)

Too many years posting on too many sites ;-)

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
