In business for over 50 years, Versa Electronics has been involved with MarCum products for the past three years, manufacturing all the MarCum sonar products during that time. Combined with our experience in the manufacture of the MarCum brand, our continuing commitment to quality and delivery makes this a perfect fit. We will bring this commitment and attention to detail to the underwater camera side of the business, as well. In addition, and based on our experience in sonar, we recognize the value of the ShowDown product and are equally committed to continued development and growth of this brand. In order to ensure timely deliveries of products currently under development and maintain the consistent quality that you are accustomed to receiving from the brands, we plan to introduce features both into existing and new products and release those designs and products only after they have been thoroughly tested and are deemed ready for the marketplace.

NAIFC Tournament Series Official Rules (2008 Season) Participants may fish with or without a portable fish house. No hard side/wheeled houses. All shelters must be open until the 8:00 am start time. No third-party fishing during the event. Each team must fish alone. Family members or friends who are not in the competition may not fish within established tournament boundaries. No communication/sharing of information between teams that may give another team a fishing advantage. Participants can fish with only one line at a time. Fish must be kept alive in a five gallon bucket or similar container at least half full of water and without ice. No frozen fish. Participants may drill as many holes as they wish. However, any open hole may be fished by any competitor as long as they maintain the 10ft rule. Teams may not fish closer than 10 feet from another team. Team partners must stay within 30 paces from one another from the time their team has passed inspection until their team's fish have been weighed. This includes the inspection, traveling on and off the ice, tournament fishing hours, and weigh-ins. All teams must fish within the designated tournament boundary area. Prefishing or practice fishing on the lake the day of the tournament is prohibited. At least (1) one team member must attend rules meeting/registration. There will be mandatory fish house and equipment inspections before participants are allowed to proceed onto the ice. The time inspections begin will be announced at the Rules Meeting (generally inspections begin at 6:30 am). Any area that is big enough to hold a fish (like but not limited to: buckets, coolers, bags, storage compartments, electronics, clothing and fish shelter) must be open and ready to be inspected. Teams must return to the official tournament weigh station by 1:00 pm with all fish culled and ready to be weighed. Your BIG FISH must be marked and ready to weigh. State laws must be observed at all times. Receiving a fishing violation citation may result in immediate disqualification. All laws pertaining to Snowmobile/ATV's (registration, licensing, insurance, and helmet laws) must be observed at all times. NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED during tournament! Cars and trucks will not be permitted inside the tournament area during the event. Snowmobiles and ATV's can be used when possible. Tournament officials will make the final decision on whether ice conditions are satisfactory for snowmobile and ATV use. This is a one-day, total weight tournament. Designated species and total number of fish will be announced for each individual tournament site. If a team is over their total number of fish, that team shall be penalized in the following manner; The big fish they register at weigh-ins will be the fish that is culled from their total bag number. Example: A team comes to scale with 17 fish, when the total bag limit is only 16 fish. Their big fish will be removed to bring your count to the designated limit of 16 fish. That team will also be deducted the weight of their big fish from total weight. Example: The big fish weighed .75lbs. Their bag limit weight after the corrected number of fish was 5.75lbs. Their official weight will be 5.00lbs. If a team witnesses a violation of these rules, it is the obligation of that team to notify an official immediately. If a violation is reported after the fact (up to one hour after the 1:00 pm stop fishing time), the team filing the grievance must do so in writing, with a form provided and a processing fee. If the grievance is deemed valid, the processing fee will be refunded. *NAIFC Tournament Series reserves the right to amend and introduce rules.

    Map Accuracy

    I have been to Doc Samson's Lowrance School & Mapping Seminar. I believe that when ~50 or so years ago the technology was improved. As an Example the GPS with WAAS improved. They will troll a Grid, so it's how far apart or how close that the interpolation has to be computed. The closer the Grid the less error in the interpolation that could be in error. A program to make your own maps is DRDepth , but I bet the Boats Transducer is not the same that Lake Mapper of thos eHigh Density MAps that are comming in now, from Lakemaster and Navionic's. Thats why we need our sonar to confirm contors errors :} It's like a fine wine getting better

    Marcum VS825c

    I pre ordered the VS825C , Reeds will ship it when it gets here . I think real soon
  11. Great News , Just received my North Map Cabelas and I am Backordered on the east till: 1 of 01-9514 HOTMAPS PREMIUM '08 SD EAST Backorder-Tentative arrival to Cabelas 01/30/08 So now we know, 1st it said 12/31/2008 , but thats always good to know!
  12. OK , Try this one , is not a Lake really a closed System, Like an Aqauarium? I saw a study that Michigan State used a quart bottle to run food & fresh water in it, that fish filled the Bottle. How many of us had an aquarium and hardly ever changed the water and just topped it off periodically, was too many fish and they got stunted, runt's. Or those uf us that bread Angel Fish and knew to feed and change the water daily , we say those fish explode in growth. Big Fish = Lot's of Food & Fresh Water The truth is that it's in the excess quantity of the hormones in the feces & urine, ie too many fish for that body of water. Like the above the System got out of check (balance)and the excess hormone's in the water is mother natures way to fight for survival. I would bet it a major fish kill and the system cleansed itsel back up a Lake could over time get back in balance .
