MarCum or Vex in the boat.

3 posts in this topic

Do some of you use your MarCum or Vex in your boats? I have my Lowrance 332 in the boat mounted on the dash. I was wondering how many also have a flasher and if you do where do have it mounted and where do you have your transducer? Just wondering if there would be an advantage to having both. Thanks for any help or tips!

I have a graph at the console and used to use a flasher in the bow with the transducer attached to the bottom of the trolling motor. When I upgraded my trolling motor, I got a MinnKota with a universal transducer and bought a FishMark 480 for the bow. I like the history of the graph better than the flasher. Either one will tell you when you come to the edge of the break with the bow of the boat, if you see fish on the bow flasher/graph keep move forward to get your bait to the fish and with two sonars you cover more area.

I have one on the bow but I also run it in conjuction with a graph. Then I have history and real time. Throw a jig on and it is just like icefishing without the ice.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      Sounds like a fair deal Boney, booze for bait works for me. i am starting to prep the boat and gear, too. cant wait.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
