If you wish to use the Vexilar year around consider buying the Pro Pack Deluxe.

This will be the best buy an will give you the whole enchilada for winter and summer boat use. Duel transducers, wiring, mounting hardwear, plus the full Pro Pack charger system along with all the key toys you will need for winter.

I do like the Vexilar for use in all seasons. Rumor has it the new Vexilars will be more day light friendly for viewing so ask for the new style if it is now available to the public.

I just ordered the new Deluxe Pro Pack and hope to get the new upgrade from the factory rep.

This package is certainly the best buy I know of for a 4 season system.

You will love in on your boat. I have my flasher mounted on my bow and it's great, especially in the weeds where your LCD will have more problems.

Thanks for the acknowledgment. Sounds like a good outfit to have in the boat.

I received the new Vexilar last week and am very pleased with the visibility in strong sun, much better that the older models. The appearance of this unit is the same as the FL-8 SLT just a few new tweaks internally that enhances overall preformance.

The dial is very easy to read in high noon sun in all colors, that is something considering my poor color vision. I still prefer to wear a good pair of polarized eye wear on the ice and water if for no other reason than to protect my vision an reduce eye fatigue.

I still think if you choose a Vexilar FL-8 you will be very pleased in it's all season use.

I have a "Hondex" which is the same as the Vexilar. I use mine year round and it is a great addition to the boat. My Hondex has saved me in the weeds and certain conditions when my LCD did not work properly. I have a permanent transducer attached to the boat and a Johnny Ray mount. Works slick.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
