RAM or Similar mount for FL8

Question

moby1

Can anyone tell me where to find a ram or similar movable multi-position mount for a Vexilar? I know they are out there. I have seen one in a boat but havent been able to find one in any catalog or at Gander or fleet farm. Any specifics would be great if anyone knows part #'s.
GOOD LUCK

I found what I was looking for at Gander Mountain in St. Cloud. Picked up the Ram Universal mount and purchased the vexilar gimble bracket at the same time. The FL-18 and 74 LB Minnkota AP/Universal Sonar are going to be a good tag team this spring/summer and fall then the FL-18 goes back to ice fishing.

I can't speak for rod holders but for locators/gps and other marine electronics Ram mounds are the way to go!

Good luck shopping.

I use the Vexilar ProMount Quick Release for my FL-18 on the bow of my boat. It is very nice.

For years anglers have been demanding a strong, low profile, quick release bracket for holding their fishing electronics. Designed to handle today's most popular sonar units, GPS or portable radios. The ProMount Quick Release Bracket makes it possible to easily remove your electronics weighing up to three pounds from a permanently mounted base with one hand. The 360-degree swivel adjustment lets you see the unit from any angle.

The Pro Mount will fit nearly all Lowrance, Garmin, Eagle, Hummingbird, Pin-Point and Vexilar electronics. The permanent base is available separately too, which makes it easy to place several bases around the boat or even in another boat. Several systems have been mounted in trucks to hold GPS units with great success. The ProMount sells for much less than current brackets, but with more features and versatility.

The sleek, low profile of the ProMount is only 1 1/8 inches high. The permanent base has no sharp edges to step-on or wear a hole in your boat cover. An optional installation hole cover spacer comes with every base to give you a well finished look to the mount when installed. Your electronics can also be mounted overhead and hang down on the secure locking rail system of the ProMount to increase the potential places you can mount electronics.

The ProMount Quick Release Bracket comes with all stainless steel mounting hardware and the bracket is corrosion resistant. The ProMount is self-draining and easy to clean, so it even looks good when the electronics are not in your boat.

Check out the Vexilar website for photos and you will see what I am talking about.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      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.

      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!
