Suspended Fish At Bemidji?

Recommended Posts

Spazzums08

Hey guys, I've read some of the reports on here, and all the fish seem to be out deep, are they usually suspended or are they still on the bottom? Might be the decision-breaker between getting an LX-5 or a FL-20, lol.

We did fairly well in 38+ fow. Had to drill plenty of holes to keep on them - seems you would get 2 or 3 aggressive fsh to come up and slam a bait at each hole and then had to finess them. Was easier to drill another hole 10 feet away and pound a few more active fish.

FL-20 in my opinion... Got to use an lx-5 for the first time today. Felt like I was looking at a nintendo tetris game - too blocky for my taste. I'll stick with my fl 18.

heres the deal, not to many people give the lx5 a chance, it can be hard to get to know how to use it , but they work wonders, and for the one guy saying it looked like it was playing a video game the one he used was prolly the first year modle marcum did a bit fine tunning to them and now there great, i sent mine in and got it fixed already but marcum stands behind there work. I have used mine about every day this winter and it has been great from depths of 5 feet in southwest minnesota to fishing lake trout in 120 feet, i never had a problem with it other then the time i dropped in a spear hole and thats when i had to send it in. i have a fl20 which is nice becuase of the flat screen but there is still many more reasons i would go with the marcum

It boils down to personal preferance. The one I used was a brand new model this winter - it was just too pixelated for my taste. I owned an lx-3 once upon a time as well, but now won't buy anything by a vex. I agree the marcum customer service is superb - having problems with my lx-3 they replaced a transducer for me no questions asked.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
