Putting the Vexilar on the Boat

6 posts in this topic

I have 2 vexilars and I was considering putting one on my boat. I thought i would be nice to find suspended fish. Does anyone else use a vexialr in the summer. Let me know.

Joe,

I can't live without one on my bow. You can't beat it to tell what kind of bottom you're fishing, instantaneously know if suspended fish are under you and in calm conditions, jig like you would during hardwater. Its a no brainer! Go for it!

I just took my Vex of the front of my boat and moved my lowrance to the front and I think I'm regreting it. I have so much confidence in my vex and when I find fish I can litterly vertical fish and see how fish are reacting to my jig/minnow better than any liquid crystal unit. YES PUT YOUR VEXILAR ON YOUR BOAT!!!! You will not regret it.

Later.

I recently removed my X125 and replaced it with my FL-18 on the bow. I wish i would have done it sooner, i have the 332c on the console.

The bow of my boat is also ruled by a Vexilar... Love the new FL 20 up there, with the flat screen. Easy to see from different angles on the boat deck...

When I bought my boat, it had a paper graph and an FL-8. I used both at the same time so I could learn what I was looking at on the flasher. Never went back. An LCD can never match the instant reading of a flasher. You'll love it.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
