Just came from a visit to a local sporting goods store in woodbury, (Richard's) has LX-3 combos for $299 with charger, bag... everything. Best price I have ever found for an LX-3 (LX-1's are 199)

Definitely a good price on great electronics! Did you buy one or are you just shopping?

That's a heck of a good price for the lx-3. Were the flashers new? Are these considered the lx-3tc with 12 settings for interference rejection vs. 7? Where at in Woodbury is Richard's located? Very interested.

these are LX-3 units but I didn't check which rejection settings they had. this is Dicks sporting goods (used to be Galyhans) near tamarack village. they also have them in Richfield at Dicks. I am under the impression that marcum is changing to a true 3 color display this year and these are composite 3 color (third color is made from the other 2) but for me, that is no big deal. I was back in there sunday and they had a bunch still. If you live near cabelas or gander, they are supposed to match a advertized price, so that may be another option. hope this helps.

Hi, new to this board, but plan on being active.

I just purchased a Vex FL18 with dual transducer yesterday for $449 out the door. No tax, no shipping. I have been told this is a great price, and I am happy to have gotten it.

Thanks for the tip bitz. I picked up my lx-3 from dicks tuesday night and yesterday afternoon it proved itself well by icing 60 sunnies over on lake washington (southcentral forum). I plan on sending the unit in come tax time for the $50 upgrade to the true color display. Thanks again!

Glad they still had some. As to the post about the FL-18, those are great units also, but I like the ability to change the zoom to any where in the range. with an 18, you can't zoom from say 10 to 16 ft if you are fishing in 30 ft even if the fish are at 12 ft. for a 120 savings, i would take the lx3 any time and still feel I got the best deal. I will have to check on the upgrade, didn't know about that. But 319 out the door I thought was a pretty good deal.

Bitz....The up-grade is amazing. If there was ever something done to help out anglers it was changing the color scheme to this new one. The colors are twice as crisp as a standard lx3. My up-grade took 6 days from door to door. If you think the adjustable zoom does you a favor now, see it with the up-grade. I swear it narrowed down the target seperation by an inch and the resolution is incredible.

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.

      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay

      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
