Anyboby know of a aftermarket soft case for my marcum?

I have tightened everything on the flasher and it still drives me nuts. I am hoping some sort of case will help.

Thanks

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

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
