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 may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
