Joe,

I can't live without one on my bow. You can't beat it to tell what kind of bottom you're fishing, instantaneously know if suspended fish are under you and in calm conditions, jig like you would during hardwater. Its a no brainer! Go for it!

I just took my Vex of the front of my boat and moved my lowrance to the front and I think I'm regreting it. I have so much confidence in my vex and when I find fish I can litterly vertical fish and see how fish are reacting to my jig/minnow better than any liquid crystal unit. YES PUT YOUR VEXILAR ON YOUR BOAT!!!! You will not regret it.

Later.

I recently removed my X125 and replaced it with my FL-18 on the bow. I wish i would have done it sooner, i have the 332c on the console.

The bow of my boat is also ruled by a Vexilar... Love the new FL 20 up there, with the flat screen. Easy to see from different angles on the boat deck...

When I bought my boat, it had a paper graph and an FL-8. I used both at the same time so I could learn what I was looking at on the flasher. Never went back. An LCD can never match the instant reading of a flasher. You'll love it.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
