Marcum VX-1 for $199

14 posts in this topic

I just picked up my first "real" flasher tonight (I had been using an OLD lowrance converted to an ice unit, and it just wasn't cutting it anymore). I was so pumped when I saw my local gander still had a couple of these on sale! I can't wait to get out tomorrow morning and put it to use!

I also got my first flasher, same one, last night. Had it out on the lake today for a while. I am very happy with this model, and for that price it was a heck of a deal. Man, my fishing buddies are gonna be psyched that I'm not hitting them up to mark a hole for me!

Got one last year. Definitely the best thing I have ever bought for ice fishing. Love it with the aftermarket soft case.

Where can you pick up a soft case other than online?

I have friend with a Marcum rod case that has a spot for four rods, misc tackle and a spot for the flasher on the bottom. I have seen them for around 50$ online. It is perfect for the type of fishing I do. Are there other brands that have a similar style bag?

I just got my super deluxe bright red padded soft cover today. I ordered it from Marcum customer service. It was just delivered by an official representative of Fed Ex. $43.65 with freight and tax and all. I must have wanted it pretty bad. It sure fits and looks nice though!

I saw that deal last week before Chirstmas and didn't buy it because I thought I was going to get it. When I didn't get it for Chirstmas, I went to Gander in Blaine. They were out of them all and the guy checked the computer and said that the one in Eden Prarie "might" have one. I finally convinced the gy to sell me the one on the shelf so I didn't have to drive 40 minutes away and not get one. I checked a few other places and saw them being sold for 279.99 at the cheapest.

    • 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.
