Best Depth Finder For Ice Fishing In Your Opinion??

Question

Guest

I am looking into purchasing a Vexilar for Ice fishing. I have put it off long enough, but was wondering if there are any other units that you think are better or worth looking into for ice fishing?
Do you know of any good internet sites where I can get a good deal?

Thanks and as always stay safe and stay dry!

Good Fishin

Stick with Vexilar. You won't be disapointed. Be careful with the fl-18, I hear they are on recall. I use a fl-8, best investment for ice fishing! Good Fishing, Matt.

Wall-i,
I haven't had any problems with my Fl-18, not yet anyways. I love it.
Where are you fishing this weekend?
Maybe I could meet up with you.
Let me know.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
