Anyboby know of a aftermarket soft case for my marcum?

I have browsed there site and don't see any cases.

OK they do have that giant rod holder/tackle box/case, but i would like a case for just the flasher.

I don't know where you live, but we stock the soft cases at our store.

The rattling bothers me a little ..

My VX-1 took a sled dump going fast when with the guy I was fishing with steered into to tight of a right turn at speed. and what the fall did was loosen the bottom of the gimbal base plate. I replaced hardware added rubber bushings as well and it took a majority if not all of the vibraton out of it. I can't believe the only that that was not right was the scratched handle, amazing..

Hey Dingy... find me one of these cases and bring it with you this weekend. Remember the gear I hand delivered to you down in Mississippi? Return the fav.......Serenity now!

For the life of me I cannot find a place to buy one of those cases online???? I live in NE WI and cannot find a dealer that carries those. With all the VX-1's I have seen go out the door of my local sporting goods stores I can't belive they don't stock soft cases for them. Either my local stores or MarCum is missing out on some accessory sales.

I would post a link to the soft case online but i think it is against forum policy.... anyway you can go online to redrockstore or you can also get them at gander and many other stores. I think the average price is around 15 dollars and i have been very happy with mine

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
