      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.

Vexilar repair in SW metro

Question

Deepinthewoods

I am aware of several retail repair shops in the north metro (MSP). Are there any in the west or SW parts of town?

I am aware I could send the fish finder to Vexilar in Bloomington, but I am looking for a walk-in place.

Thanks.

That place is a walk in place. I don't recall the name but I brought mine in last year and they bench tested it and made the repairs while I waited. The place was kind of hard to find because its located in a new buisness park area. GL HTB

Indeed, bring it to the Vexilar headquarters, you will not be disappointed. I had a unit with a cracked face plate (from my abuse) and they fixed it while I waited, and even threw a hat and some stickers my way.

On another occasion, I had a transducer I suspected was going bad. They tested it on the spot, and gave me a new one, no charge.

Went to Vexilar and couldn't be happier.

Walked right in, the guy tried a repair so it would save me some $$$. No go, so I purchased a new transducer/cable. Was out of there in no time.

FYI, about 4 years ago they moved from 88th St in Bloomington to their current location on Old Shakopee Road. Much easier to find (not that I looked up the address on the Internet and went to the old location first).

Every winter, my kinfolk in So. Dak. do horrible things to their Vex's and send them with me to take to the Vexilar service center. I've had total rebuilds for the price of parts. They put a new motor on one that was worn out and several years old for no cost. They reconditionned one that hadn't filed a flight plan when it flew out of the back of the truck. Cleaned and freshed out one that had been stored in a snowbank in the back of a truck. We've also bought a few factory reconditioned ones there at a good price. All the repairs were done while I waited so a second trip wasn't needed. Great people and service... ( the girls behind the counter love chocolate donuts. I've gotten several free hats. laugh.gif)

      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!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!
