Marcum VX-1 for $199

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
