Is this a long shaft or short shaft? If it is a long shaft I would be very interested.

It is a short shaft.

I'd take a guess it's a mid-late 70's model.

Thanks Chuck. I have to have a long shaft. Nice looking motor. Is the flasher a complete copy of Vexilars' or am I looking at it wrong?

Is the flasher with the name "Hondex" related to Vexilar? Looks just like my friends Vexilar.

Lost,

Yes this is like a Vexilar FL-8, only difference is it's older and the name changed several years ago to Vexilar.

I have a hondex too, bought it used while in college - works great. All the vexilar accessories (trasducer, battery cables, mounting brackets) are compatible. This is a great buy for anyone in need of an FL-8!!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...  
    • Tom Sawyer
      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL
