12 posts in this topic

I am selling an upgraded Aqua-View VPG sonar unit. I have all receipts, packaging, and information from Nature Vision showing it has been upgraded. It has been used very little, still has protective film over the LCD screen.

It has horizontal bars that represent your lure and fish on a verticle screen. They are a very good peice of equipment, especially for that price

I picked up the unit on closeout in early Oct. from the Red Rock store in Ely, cost me about $103 to get to my door. Too good of deal to pass up the opportunity to try the unit out first hand. I paid $17 for shipping back and forth to Nature Vision for the upgrade. As said, I haven't used it very much. I mostly use a Marcum, followed by a Lowrance graph. The VPG would just age in my garage like a bad bottle of wine..

Mstark, I'm a WSP fanatic! Absolutely love that man. As Kdawg said, it show vertical lines marking your jig above the bottom, hopefully with some dandy fish coming up after it. It will help you catch more more more fish.. ;\)

ChompChomp - includes the case, charger, battery - everything that came with the unit. It doesn't come with a float, hangs from an arm with a cable stop like the marcum flashers.

It has a back light that can be turned on and off.

ChompChomp & Shedzebo, I got emails from both of you with the same timestamp. Go figure. Shedz email was first in my inbox, I sent him an email back. The unit is more than likely sold.

thanks guys, LB

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
