FOUND a VEXILAR on the Side of the ROAD!!! PLEASE CLAIM...

13 posts in this topic

Found a Vexilar in the St Cloud Area on the side of the road... Okay, so my brother actually found it. If you think lost a vexilar within the last 2 weeks in the ST CLOUD area... you can email me at jjzuhlsdorf at hotmail (Contact Us Please)...

If you email me, tell me what model it was, the style of carrier (ultra pack, pro-pack, or the genz pack).... if possible the serial number would obviously seal the deal.... and what ROAD you think it may have fell out at. If everything matches up we'll gladly return it.... I know I would be super dissappointed if I lost mine. confused.gifshocked.gifcrazy.gifmad.gif

The thing still works??????

That would be quite the testament to Vexilar if a flasher could fall out of a truck and bounce off a road and still work. ooo.gif

I had one fly off the back of a snowmobile as my buddy was driving way too fast. It ended up in about 10 pieces but still worked fine after getting it back together.

Lake Tahoe, just wanted to say that it is pretty noble of you to see if anyone lost a 300 dollar machine... there should be more like you out there. smirk.gif

3 cheers for LakeTahoe! If nobody claims it I guess you have yourself a new Vex to do with what you want.

FYI. Thanks for all the kudos... I have had three people email me trying to claim it... unfortunately the stories and descriptions of the unit have not matched. Maybe the person hasn't even noticed it's gone yet?!?

That could be, but I doubt it. Any fisherman with a vexilar knows its the first thing he grabs when heading out of the house and the first thing to "mental check" when heading off the ice. I bet he doesnt read a forum like this, maybe contact the police and see if he/she notified them? To see if any cops may be on the lookout in the town/area you found it??? Otherwise, keep it and give it to the girlfriend, wife, father-in-law smile.gif (Get on his good graces some more)

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?

      Thanks a lot phishnerd! I will give it a shot and let ya know how I do! I am hoping to get out tomorrow if not hopefully this weekend! Thanks for the tips on baiting also! What would you use for live baits?
