I don't have one but my buddy and I have used the Showdown and I thought it worked great...I have never used a Vexilar so I can't compare the two but I really like the Showdown.

I bought one about 3 weeks ago and really like it. I have never used a Marcum or Vex so I'm not a good source for comparison. With the Showdown I'm able to see a Waxie on a tiny jig in 30' of water. The noise rejection feature works great also. I have fished in a couple of tournaments where there were many others around using sonars and I was able to dial up the noise rejection level so that none of the others caused me any problems. Overall impression is this is an excellent product.

Jamison,

Nature Vision is the parent company. Aqua-Vu is just one of their brands.

      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.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
