I doubt if I would have got my Nip pb this year without electronics as I coaxed it off bottom and it hit 6 feet off or should I say higher.

lots of fish caught 3-7 feet off bottom...u would never know without the electronics, so I will summarize this way.

If it came down to 2 choices.....The electronics to go with or the Rum....

Sadly I would have to leave the Rum behind

Well that pretty well sums up how important electronics really are

I can always have the Rum delivered on ice, but not the electronics

I used to think I loved fishing. After I bought my Marcum a couple of years ago, I now love catching... fish that is. LOL
I have a back-up battery /booster that I use when the Marcum battery gives out(after using for a long week-end) Well, FatRap's battery gave out before mine did this year and I let him use the spare. Of course, 1/2 an hour later my battery went but I didn't have the heart to take my spare away from Dave, so I went without for the rest of the day. I didn't even feel like fishing without it. Thank god the bite died off for the day LOL.
Long story short, I can attribute 80% of the fish I caught this year directly to the flasher... Best money I ever spent.

Only way to go is with electronics pulled my hds 7 out of my boat and rigged up for the shack wouldn't fish without it. Works like a charm actually have 2 of them set up with no problems.

After fishing with Fishchaser67 and watching him have way more action with his flasher, itís on my list of things to have when the budget allows

I really think they are key! the beams are adjustable and narrow for deeper waters and are a big factor for getting skunked or catching fish..example; last weekend at our local lake ( 4 hrs south of nip ) we were in 50 feet of water and if we had noe eyes under the ice we would have been skunked, cause all 20+ walleye caught were in 20 feet...we would have dropped 30 feet below them and wouldn't even have known they were there

Would the Garmin Striker 4 portable Kit be alright for a novice ice fisherman who only goes out 2 or 3 times a year with local hut operators?
Don't want to spend a lot of money.
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
