This flasher has great power and target seperation. Three color ID. It will show you firmness of bottom and weeds, it just takes a little nack to reading, but if your use to reading a flasher you will be in good shape. It also comes with carrying case and charger.

Is this thing still for sale?

does it have any issues finding smaller baits at deeper depths. I have a CW classic and it looses a smaller bait after about 20 feet.I am also wondering if you put a floating self leveling transducer on it. I am very interested if it doesn't have the same issue and the price is right.

still for sale!

mike-pics were sent, the unit is roughly 4yrs old

-no it doesn't have the floater on it like the vexilars. you just need to hang it in the water past the bottom of the ice using its arm bar, so it's self leveling in that fact-it's exactly like the a Marcum

-finding smaller lures-it depends on what kind of smaller lure you use. If using a smaller horizontal jig, and you should be fine, no matter how small. when you use a smaller vertical jig, it can be hard to pick up, but my brand new MarCum LX3 has that same issue...

I also have the same unit and I love it!! Only two minor drawbacks though. 1) It is a little more noisey than Vex but it definitely tolerable. 2) Smaller jigs in deep water can be tough to pick up. I fish a lot of 50-80 fow with it and when you get that deep, smaller vertical jigs will "disappear" until you jig them. But, I can easily mark smelt at those depths.

For the price of the unit as compared to the other makes--I don't think a guy could go wrong--I haven't even thought of trading mine in! The seperation on the Zercom is a lot better than the rest.

      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
