FL-18

9 posts in this topic

Just got mine today! No battery terminal leads? What's up with that? Do they all come like that? If so what connectors do you guys like the alligator or the crimp on style? I like the alligator myself.

I have had the FL-18 since last year. Mine has flat spade connections on both of the battery terminals. The charger has alligator clips to attach to the battery.

Tim , Mine came the same way. Why ? Dunno but it's easy enough to add the spade type conectors if you can work a pliers. LOL
I used the power cord and dual beam ducer off my 8 SLT anyways so it was'nt that big a deal.
I prefer the spade comectors. Better conection and you won't knock em off by accident that easily.

A Marum AND a Vex ? You strike oil on the back 40 or somthing ? LOL

No strike oil here Geeman, that would be nice though then I could buy all my friends a new MarCum LX-3. smile.gif Proceeds from Colorpoint sale and the other half from my son's paper route money he has been saving took care of the rest. Tyler agreed to it because I knew in close his Colorpoint was gonna get the swirlies from my MarCum. Were gonna be swapping these unit's for a while back and forth it will be fun... This snow we got put a damper on things but there are still plenty of accesible places up north and west that did not get hit as bad.
Do you have the V2 flash update?

Tim , Yea I got the update as unfortunately when I ordered mine from Cabela's it did'nt have it. I ordered early so I'd have it before icefishin ALSO in case I needed to send it back in for the update. No big deal though as it was like 5 days to Vex and back to me.My buddy has a an 18 without the update and to tell the truth I think it works as good perhaps better than mine. He runs a 12 degree ducer and I the 9/19 dual beam. My 18 came with a 19 ducer instead of the 12 which kinda sucked as I wanted to try the 12. Oh well. There are a few minor glitchs with the 18 but no big deal. I really like the brighter display as well. It shows up beuty in the sun it does as opposed to the older units. Bottom line for me is the 18 is a winner and I'm totaly happy with it !

Good ice and zero snow here now. BOUT TIME TOO ! LOL

    • Feb. 18, 2017 Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter this week asking her followers for some help identifying synonyms for the words “sick,” “horrifying” and “awful.” “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” Clinton tweeting, linking to a story about an illegal immigrant who was detained when she sought a protective order against a domestic abuser. Clinton received a lot of responses, but one Twitter user gave Clinton an answer she never expected. That user is Juanita Broaddrick, one of the myriad of women that has accused Clinton’s father, former President Bill Clinton, of rape or sexual abuse. Broaddrick alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas. She responded to Clinton’s request by tweeting, “Well, since you asked, Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Twitter was entertained — and many thought Broaddrick should have added Clinton’s mom, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to the list of synonyms for “horrifying” as well:  
    • Sonar units continue to be an anglers best friend. Still some suspended fish out there. Working every fish hard is key. Some fish are players and some pretenders. A good tullibee and perch bite in some areas amongst walleyes / saugers. The anglers working a spoon and a dead stick with a plain hook and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/afternoon and 17-24 before dusk.  Best colors continue to be glow red and gold on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail. Snow pack on the lake is disappearing and ice is still very good.   The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been okay. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. Warm weather and current will effect areas harsher than others.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, fishing has really picked up. The dead stick is producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as some over 28 inches! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30 ft plus in the mud with Tungsten jigs tipped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  
    •   Because some door knob Atheist on a Fishing forum keeps bring it up even though they don't believe in it-oddly?  
    • 23 games in 41 days after the mandated break, and the horrid streak for teams after their break contiunes i think its like 3-13-4.  That is going to put a lot of strain on players playing that many games in that short amount of time.  We will probably be seeing Kemps at least once a week I would guess, but if he can be remotely close to his last start we should be alright.
    •   Where do you get your info?            
    • Thanks for the additional advice. I had been thinking that I didn't need the fancy EPS, ESP, etc.
    •   We don't need Jesus for that - Trump's already got it covered....
    •   Yup.   Being the policeman for the world is straining our finances but some seem to be blind to the fact that inviting more people to come over and risking more going on an already unsustainable welfare state will have the same effect.     Of course, we can continue to just print the money we need. And I don't think Jesus will be performing a Loaves and Fishes type miracle with our currency anytime soon.   I'm beginning to get what Del meant when he said go far enough to the right and you eventually become the left
