Bargain Cave

Question

Coach1310

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.

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required.

      wow! talk about service. called marine general in duluth yesterday and its on my step this morning!  drill trigger is at chest level so should be dandy.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch reels often so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps
