Who uses ....?

4 posts in this topic

Who uses those small electronic depth finders? The Polar Vision or Vexilar LPS-1?

Do they work? Should I spend the money?

i bought the polar vision this year. I really like using it compared to taking out my vexilar fl8, it is a lot easier and quicker and seems to be very accurate. Also the polar vision has an audible fish alarm. If you go to vexilars HSOforum they sell a refurbished Lp1 for around 79.99 compared to 149.99 for the polar vision. Either way to me it is a must have if you fish allot of different lakes.

I use mine all the time. I bought a polar vision on hsolist last winter. it was brand new in the package and I got it for $100.00. I do a lot of pike fishing and I like to use it for marking depth variations to find drop offs. I really haven't used it for markig fish. I just carry my minnow bucket along with me and pur a little bit of water on the ice and check depth. I don't have to drill a bunch of holes and risk spooking the fish. it's a lot easier to carry than my vexilar.

Thanks for the info on Polar Vision. Does any one use the Vexilar model?

    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?
