      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Where to buy electronics???

Recommended Posts

archer59

I'm looking for a new(er)locator for the bow of my boat, or a combo GPS/locator for the stern. I've been watching e-bay lately but I might buy something new this time. Looking for suggestions on where to buy. Online works for me also.

Thanks in advance for your responses,

Nick

Go to Marine General. Call them and ask about show specials they always seem to have some deals on different units.

I have had the best luck and found the best prices on Ebay. Plus you pay no sales tax and that can add up on electronics purchases.

Check out Wade at Jolly marine. He is out of iowa and ships next day to your house free and matches prices. I am very happy with the Lowrance 332 I got from him for $599 w/no tax.

Wow, that LCX17 from Reeds if it has GPS antenna it's a heck of a good deal. I can't believe the price $ 449.00

And I know some people is trying to sell me a used LCX15 for $ 400.00......shocked.gif

I would check with these 3 places:

Marine General

Reeds

Thorne Brothers

You can't go wrong with any of them. You probably want it now, but if you wait until winter you can buy it at one of the sports shows. They are usually willing to deal a little more at the shows.

Good Luck!

I like to froogle stuff I am going to buy.

(option at google) Stuff is usually quite a bit less than retail. It doesn't always find what I am looking for but usually does.

Jolly Ann marine is the place. No sales tax, free shipping and great service. Wade is also a very good fisherman. He knows his stuff and will give steer you in the right direction. Have any questions zip him an email and he will respond within a few hours at worst.

Not sure if this is universal, but I understand the mark-up on electronics is typically pretty low - most places don't make a ton of money on electronics sales...

I'd agree with the MArine General plug - Russ has been known to cut a deal or two in his day...

Thorne Bros will give you a good deal and make sure you get what you want. They walk you through the different options and help you pick one out that truly suits your needs. They provide excellent customer service and are easy to work with. You will also find that their prices are very comparable to other stores, if not better on some units...

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
