Marcum and universal sonar


setterguy

Question

Am I correct in understanding that the Minn kota universal sonars still don't work with the Marcums? I want to upgrade my trolling motor but kind of want to try and wait it out if they will have one shortly. Anyone in the know out there?

Do any flashers work with a universal sonar? I always see everyone running a seperate ducer.

Good question, I have no first hand experience myself...I already have the transducer so I guess its really no big deal. Just trying to eliminate one wire at a time.

Minnkota has an adapter for a Vexilar so flashers must work. I bet somebody could make one to work.

I emailed Marcum last year about this and they said they gave the spec's to MinnKota but MinnKota wasn't planning on building a plug for the Marcum. So then I emailed MinnKota and got the same answer. Not enough market demand or something to that effect. We need more people to email MinnKota to put pressure on them to make the plug for the Marcum.

I have a universal sonar cable for my Vexilar FL-18.

They have been out since Minn-Kota made the universal sonar motors.

Currently, there is no cable made for the Marcum units.

Dang it! I just bought a new boat yesterday and I got universal sonar on the trolling motor so I could mount my Marcum on the bow. I assumed it would work, figures...

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
