Marcum Batterys????

Question

Jimmy from Cottage Grove

I have a marcum lx5 and I am heading out of town for the weekend. I don't think that I will be able to charge it at all. I have a vexilar battery here. Can I hook up the vexilar battery to the marcum if I run out of juice? I am pretty sure they are the same, if not really similar. I just want to be on the safe side.

Yes you can run the Vexilar battery in your Marcum . It's 12 volt and thats all that matters . I run a vexilar 9 amp 12 volt in mine all the time and keep the 7 amp Marcum battery as the spare .

Yep, any "flasher" battery available from Cabelas, Fleet Farm, Gander, etc will work in the Marcum Flashers. I've been taking a number of 3 day trips this winter and my LX-3 is running out of juice at the beginning of the 3rd day usually.

I've got a couple spare batteries that I bring along but I also plan on getting a spare DCS system for one of the batteries. That will make it much easier for charging, knowing the charge, and swapping out the batteries. The DCS I have now is really stuck to my Marcum battery with some 3M double sided tape so swapping that isn't an option.

      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!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
