Frozen Vexilar?

Recommended Posts

I was fishing in Ely the first week of february. Got out to the crappie lake. All went well, Gator ran, Brand new auger started, fish trap went up no problem. Then Bam! Vexilar would not work right. I tried everything. Is it possible something inside of it could have frozen? I took it back to the cabin and warmed it up and then worked fine. It was like someone close to me just died when it quit working. Anyone else ever have this happen to them? The temps were in the -20's below.

I was having a problem with mine. It was like a lot of interferance, could not pick up my jig or the bottum. I pulled up the ducer and wiped it off. There was a thin layer of ice on the ducer. Works fine now.

Never had that problem, used them in -40 in ontario, they sure like it warmer though. It's possible your battery froze if it wasn't fully charged. There is nothing that can freeze in the vex itself if it stays dry, however it is an electric motor, and the cold can slow them down. once running they warm up and work from my experiences.

If the problem persists, e-mail vexilar, they have a staff that will get back to you quickly. I have had good esperiences with asking them questions. Brent

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
