Anyboby know of a aftermarket soft case for my marcum?

I have browsed there site and don't see any cases.

OK they do have that giant rod holder/tackle box/case, but i would like a case for just the flasher.

I don't know where you live, but we stock the soft cases at our store.

The rattling bothers me a little ..

My VX-1 took a sled dump going fast when with the guy I was fishing with steered into to tight of a right turn at speed. and what the fall did was loosen the bottom of the gimbal base plate. I replaced hardware added rubber bushings as well and it took a majority if not all of the vibraton out of it. I can't believe the only that that was not right was the scratched handle, amazing..

Hey Dingy... find me one of these cases and bring it with you this weekend. Remember the gear I hand delivered to you down in Mississippi? Return the fav.......Serenity now!

For the life of me I cannot find a place to buy one of those cases online???? I live in NE WI and cannot find a dealer that carries those. With all the VX-1's I have seen go out the door of my local sporting goods stores I can't belive they don't stock soft cases for them. Either my local stores or MarCum is missing out on some accessory sales.

I would post a link to the soft case online but i think it is against forum policy.... anyway you can go online to redrockstore or you can also get them at gander and many other stores. I think the average price is around 15 dollars and i have been very happy with mine

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
