Vexilar

4 posts in this topic

Last night I was out on Upper Red Lake for the evening. My vexilar FL-18 was acting up with static-like/colors flashing all the time and used AZ mode and it worked fine the last 3 feet. My blazer was parked right by my portable ice house, and when I warmed up the Blazer, went back in the ice house and the Vexilar was all fine, couldnt figure out the problem then turned off the blazer and acted up again. Why does it do that when the blazer is not running? Should I be parking a little ways away?

I have a similar problem. Mine is a little slow to start. It makes a noise and after a while it sounds OK. Check your battery, mine is on its last leg and starts acting funny even though the charge says full. Mine holds up for about 8 hrs. If you have a new one, it may do the trick.

Good Luck!

Take your hand and wipe the surface of the iceducer, sometimes when mine acts up it is because there is ice or some other sht on it.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
