Vexilar ?

Question

anchor man

I have an older FL8 and have always noticed that the "blip" for my jig will disappear into the solid bottom color. I will then still be able to lower it another 10 inches or so until I can actually feel the jig hit the bottom. Is this just odler technology (without any zoom features), or is this a sign of it wearing out? It seems to happen in both soft and hard bottoms.

Thanks

Give an example of the structure you are fishing.

It will do that if you are set up on a break or in moderate weeds no matter which flasher you use.

92python, that's a great point, I do typically fish a lot of drops in 15+ fow, so that makes perfect sense that I'm picking up the shallow edge of the cone and jigging further down the slope. I'll pay closer attention the next time I'm on a flat bottom and see how it works.

thanks

18 inch Crappie

Do not feel bad I have a Fl-18 and the jig went down 3 feet into the bottom, did not think that was right so I busted out the camera and I was fishing the top of a mud flat so I knew there was no drop off. It was a crack in the bottom of the lake maybe 4' wide and 3 feet deep that went on for 200 yards or so. Kinda cool grin.gif

info on their website shows that the cone reads bottom as the first place the cone touches on the bottom so a sloped bottom, even slightly will have several inches, depending on the slope, where fish could be but may not show up on the readout.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
