I purchased a new Zercom Clearwater Pro Flasher which I have yet to receive. I would like to hear what others think of it? Does it work for you? Any tips? Etc.

I didn't like the puck transducer I got with it for ice fishing so I bought an ice ducer (Reed's in Walker??) which allowed me to drop it in my hole. Except... no float. No problem... Hello? Vexilar customer service? Um yeah, I uh burned my styrofoam float on my heater, can I get another one? Had it within a week free of charge. If you fish outside you might want to come up with a way to shade it from the sunlight. People on this forum have suggested to me cardboard, a coffee can sprayed black and bent as needed. Hope this helps.

I own the ColorPoint and it works good. Never tried the Clearwater Pro. The only problems I have had with the Colorpoint is it doesn't like direct sunlight to hit the flasher face and if I turn up the gain too high I get interfearence from my buddies FL8. Other than that it is a great flasher.

It has great battery life. I too called up Vexilar and told them that I burned the float on my heater and they sent me a new one. I like it better than the arm that hangs out.

I have been using an LCF-40 for several years now and love it. It doesn't have the colors but clearly shows through darkness of the mark any fish closing in on my offering. At the time I got it the price was in my range and I have yet to regret it. Also seems to run forever on a fully charged battery.

I also had a Color Point. Worked great, excellent seperation and resolution. Problem is I always got bad interference when fishing next to other electronics. It didn't matter what the make was and it made my Color Point useless. So I sold the Zercom to a friend who fishes solo and bought a Vex.

If they have solved this problem, great. You'll have yourself a nice unit. If not and you fish with other people that are using electronics, you may want to consider returning it.

The ice-ducers are normally 89 bucks. If your looking for one I just ordered one last week from hummingbird.com. They are selling them for only 30 bucks! while supplies last, just click on contact us, or give them a call.

I sent my old Clearwater Classic in for repairs last month. They sent it back telling me its obsolete and they no longer repair them.

I wasnt aware that Humminbird had a flasher for ice fishing. Does anyone have a link to a HSOforum that has a pic and info of a Clearwater Pro?

I wonder if the iceducers they are selling for $30.00 will work on an old clearwater classic?

Thanks

Reed's in Walker has parts they got from Hummingbird. transducers and other things too. They will be down in a week or so for the st. Paul sports show. They shipped me all my stuff for nothing. I just talked to them at the show.

    • They do some crazy things. I recall last year a grouse would follow a atv around everytime the person would drive into the birds home area.
    • Maybe, but they are only about 5 feet long fully extended. Also, mine has the side slide outs, not the front and back so there isn't much room for anything near the door. But maybe it was for something smaller over the door. I will investigate further this evening. 
    • Well, as I posted in the hummingbirds thread (and now hereby update) still hummers in Rochester and robins too.   The hummers were at the feeder this morning and three or 4 robins on the lawn.  Also had chickadees, nuthatches and a few various finches at the seed feeder.    
    • I'm pretty sure they are for the outside awning.  Go to site below.  Click on 1979 brochures.  Then click on page 07.  It shows a camper with two poles holding up an awning. That may be why the flat bottom piece.      http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/bethanyimages.html  
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
    • I was bow hunting this weekend and had 3 flush out from under my stand.  One of them came back later on and tried to get me out of the tree.  It dove at me several times.  I had to take my hat off and smack it before it finally decided to give up.  Never had a bird do that and wouldn't have guessed a grouse would have been the culprit. 
    • No, there were other poles for that.
    • Sounds like I’m right on track. I’ll just get everything I need now. Think I’ll wait till next spring for engine oil but I’ll do front and rear diffs now as well as the tranny. I’ll grease everything to that hasen’t been done for a while. For the front diff change did you need to pull the front tire off like the maual says to? Not going to lie that manual is pretty fauge.
