Color point

Question

Hubcat

I have a color point and the one of the pins broke on the male end of the transducer plug that goes inside the color point. I looked at it and it is easy to replace but I can't find where to buy the plug. I e-mail Hummingbird and they said they would have to fix it at a cost of about $40. Any information on where to get one?

I just went to Zercom's website and they have ABSOLUTELY NO info on the colorpoints! Its like they never existed. They must have dropped it from their new product line. I just bought one last year and love it but now I wonder how long we can expect to get parts if needed. Really ticks me off mad.gif

Boys and Girls, and all who own Colorpoint flashers. I e-mailed both Vexilar and Humminbird . I asked Vex if they had purchased the colorpoint or its tech. or had anything to do with them in the future as to service . Vexilar said " This is not true". I asked Humminbird what the status of the colorpoint was . The answer was "We are no longer making the colorpoint ,we will continue to have parts and service, we have sold nothing to Vexilar". So there it is and as a very satisfied colorpoint I am **** sad to find out that I now own an obsolete piece of equipment. I know I bought the right thing at the time now I can only hope it lasts forever. How does anyone else feel?

Thanks for the ideas I will check these places out.Does anybody know what the three different pins are for? I broke 1 of them off and the color point still seems to work ok.Are they for the different depth ranges?(I have not tried the deepest setting yet to see if it still works, but the first two work)

I love my color point and I hope that they will continue to support it.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
