Bargain Cave

7 posts in this topic

Looking at possibly purchasing some new electroncis for the boat from the Bargain Cave @ you know where. Just wondering if anyone has had an issue with anything purchased there, specifically big ticket items. There is a no return policy with it so I want to make sure things are as good as advertised most of the time. Thanks!

I was going to buy a GPS at the cave, and I passed since the screen was pretty scratched up. I swear they had a 30 day return policy as a guarantee for operational merchandise. I would verify.

I bought a Lowrance 3600 from them, it works great. Just check the screen, knobs, etc make sure things look good. They do have room to lower the price on some of the stuff in the cave, so be sure to ask if they can "go any lower on the price". If I remember right, they have a 30 day warranty on electronics.

That is where most of my stuff comes from. Make sure you know what all it should have if it was new. Lots of times it might be missing a piece or two so you will need to get those things. But it is a great way to save some money. I got a LMS 332C there last year and it has worked great saved nearly $150 off what a new one would have cost. I didn't have everything with it but I knew what I needed and I was fine with getting it and buying what else I need to make everything work.

I bought an underwater camera no box no manual. It did not work I took it back and they swapped it out for another in the cave that had a box and manual. Not to mention the one in the box was $30 more, no upcharge.

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
