...for emotional distress! Went crappie fishing in a deep hole in the middle of a remote lake last nite. It is apparent to me that Vexi has pre-programmed their machines(at least mine) to make these red lines appear under and around my bait every few minutes:) I think this is an intentional attempt to undermine my sanity. Anyone else have a unit like this? Maybe we could file class action?

Same with Aqua Vu- They actually show fish looking at your bait!Everyone is telling the same story this year, I think you'll have lots of takers. Worst year ever-and I'm old!

I use all three brands and all three at times have given me those false marks. Then I put on my Lindy Flyin rattlin spoon or my JB Lures rattlin varmits and those lines tuurned into hooked fish.

Amazing issue.

thought there was electronic error on mine also until I changed baits and open a pop and lit a smoke and then my rod bounced FISH ON!

You must have had it in Demo Mode. I do it all the time to get my kids all hyped up.

I thought I had the same thing, but I looked down the hole (you can see bottom in 20 FOW on Pike Bay) and I actually SAW the dang walleyes swimming around but not biting. Didn't matter what I put on or how I presented it, they weren't interested. Grrr. Lots of nice fat perch bit though.

My wife is pretty handy with computers/electronics etc. I'm starting to think she might have programmed my Vex to keep me out of the house. blushblushblush

Try a macho minnow (tipped w/ fathead tail), I have had solid success with these on all bodies of water that I have fished this winter. Bouning it off the bottom has been when I have been getting all of my hits. Had good luck with this on LOTW, Red, Mille Lacs and WBL. I don't know what it is, but it is working. The color that I am using is silver/pink. Really haven't had an issue of having lookers, seems like the fish attack as soon as they show on the vex.

I have caught a grand total of zero fish with the macho minnow so far this year. Very disappointed with it. I'll give it another whirl when I go out in the morning though smile

I have had success with it, obviously if it isn't working for you try something else. But for some reason, it has worked on my last 5 trips. On Red I was out with two of my coworkers and I caught the first 16 fish, they then realized that they should make a change. Good luck out there, hopefully we can have a solid weekend of fishing coupled with a Vikings win!

    • Red neck fix- take a belt sander and sand a flat spot in the caters so they won’t turn and you are set
    • What you want exists. I used to work for a company that produced a standing chair and I saw parts like that. The trick will be sourcing them in the quantity you need. might want to check with Grainger or McMaster-carr.   How about splurging on your Mom and getting her a new table and chairs set? Might be easier.😀
    • The legs are fairly long/wide rectangular and so I don't see this type of thing working.  What I would really like would be some sort of device that had the shaft but a flat piece of plastic rather than the casters.  But I've never seen anything like that.
    • Couldn't you pry them off with a channel locks and put a rubber chair-table leg cap on them?   
    • Mom just got wooden flooring installed in her kitchen.  The chairs she has have casters, the ones with the shaft that gets inserted into the sleeve on the bottom of the leg.  We'd like to get something was just a flat piece that wouldn't move so easily.  Concern is that the 93-year-old will take a tumble if the chairs moves as she sits down.  
    • It was a flooded camper to start.  $400 basically I paid for a rolling shell.  Here is Iowa not much ice yet, Okoboji should cap tonight.  So hopefully in a couple weeks we will be fishing.  Im wiring it tonight and insulation late this week.  Hopefully we will be done before the 1st of the year or so.   
    • When I built my wheelhouse 5 years ago I wanted total wheel alignment capability. I designed my axles around bolt on wheel hubs with ability to compound shim achieving correct camber and toe. Saw way too many boat trailers with serious worn tires due to hubs welded to axels. (Tire in photo attached to 2x4 was used during build so I could cut the grass.)
    • Wow, you really stripped her down.  Nice work so far, but you better keep working. The ice is getting thicker by the day!  😄
