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.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.
