Now, for the 2023 ice fishing season, MarCum raises the bar once again, introducing two new models that cater to different angler preferences and budgets.
The standout feature of MarCum’s Lithium batteries is their lithium chemistry, which sets them apart from the competition. Not all lithium batteries are created equal, and MarCum’s line of Lithium batteries showcases a chemistry type, with its own unique advantages. Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) is the ice anglers ideal chemistry, which strikes a balance between weight, cold weather performance, and charge cycle longevity.
Designed with meticulous attention to detail, the Lithium Roamer Shuttle is poised to set a new standard in ice fishing equipment. Its elevated height profile brings the control dial within close reach, allowing for swift and precise adjustments. The result is an unparalleled user experience that enhances the angler’s ability to adapt quickly to changing conditions
Combining the culmination of 20 years of excellence, the Explorer HD L stands as a testament to MarCum’s commitment to providing cutting-edge technology to anglers across the spectrum. This new addition cements MarCum’s industry-leading status in underwater viewing systems by seamlessly integrating superior quality and unparalleled performance.
Highly anticipated expanded lineup of Sonar Flasher Ice Fishing Systems for the upcoming 2023 ice fishing season. Building on its legacy of groundbreaking technology, MarCum introduces two new models, built on the foundation of proven performance of the M3 and M5, designed to provide anglers with unparalleled sonar performance and the ultimate edge on the ice.
At long last, the walleye opener is upon us. After any winter most anglers are more than fired up to be able to hit open water once again and catch a few marble eyes. When winter extends itself into spring, then rest assured that the water will be cold and walleyes may still be spawning on lakes throughout the great state of Minnesota.
After a long winter, there is nothing like the unbridled anticipation of hitting the open water once again. Spring and summer is a special time of the year and soaking up the sun on the water is the best way to recharge the body and soul. The last thing you want to have is maintenance issues going to or on the water. Be sure to follow these quick tips to ensure a greater chance at a fun-filled day on the water.
Whether you’re ready for it or not, the ice season is coming to an end sooner than later. For many of us anglers, it was an odd season riddled with less-than-ideal conditions – including lack of ice and excess amounts of snow and ice. With snow melt in full force and deteriorating ice conditions, we can’t help but think of what’s coming next.
We’re nearing the end of walleye season in MN, and things have gotten a bit tougher. Snow is deep and ice is thick(er), and the amount of available light at depth has been cut dramatically. Your early season haunts are likely nowhere near where you are ice fishing now, and at this point, it’s more about just getting bites rather than talking about how many you’re catching.
Crappie are probably the trendiest fish to pursue. If there is a hot bite out somewhere it doesn’t take long for the multitudes to find out about it. They are also pretty willing biters and some of the tastiest fish out there. Crappie can commonly be found in and amongst the good bluegill areas although the crappie will be found higher in the water column. Crappie will also be found suspended over deeper basins throughout any given lake. This makes them relatively easy to find with your flasher or digital sonar. Find your way out onto the basin and drill a hole and look for suspended fish. When you get on top of them then drop your presentation down right away. Be warned, because it is a basin with no structure to hold them in a certain area, a lot of times these fish will roam about. The challenge will be to stay over them the best you can by drilling extra holes and hole-hopping. Using lithium batteries in your electronics makes this much more doable. Do your arms and back a favor and replace the heavy lead-acid battery in your electronic unit.
