Sportshow deals

11 posts in this topic

Anyone find some good deals at the sportshow? There were lots if you took the time to look. One can walk out of there saving lots of money. I bought a Eagle locator for $49.99 (reg. $159.99). I saw Fenwick Venture rods for $29.00 (reg.$49.99), lightning rods for $14.99 (after rebate). Lots of crankbait for $2.00. Some excellent prices on reels too. Looking for a duffle bag or gear bag of some sort? There is a huge selection for under $20. I would bet on Sunday some of the sales might get better saving even more money.

Bought a reconditioned Aqua View Scout XL for $159.00 including tax. Thought that was pretty good. Found a piece of paper inside when I got home that said "as is" some features may not work. That is exactly what I got. Camera and screen work buy no direction or lights which I think will be just fine, better then having nothing at all.

I am looking for a new boat and the show specials were nothing special. I did find a place where I could have saved maybe $500. I think shortly there will be better sales than that around.

I have not decided yet. I dont know what brand I am going to purchase. Probably a 16 ft with a 50-70 hp motor with all the goodies.

I looked at it and also looked at the new LUNDS. Might lean towards the LUND as they are a sponsor and also do have a good boat.

Both are very nice boats.

I bought a reconditioned Aqua View Scout SRT for $185.00. That one retails for $370.00. I found the same note inside, but thank goodness everything works fine. I was told there is a 90 day warranty.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
