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.

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
