Pikester, welcome to the "curse" of the Vexilar!!! Good luck ever trying to fish without it again. LOL... Glad to hear you enjoyed it so much. Way to use it to determine when to change lures/jigs often, that is what it helps with the most IMO. When you get lookers that don't bite, you know it, and when you change and they start to bite you can't help but feel that the vex helped you catch them. I've been a "victim" of the curse for 9 years now, but I'm not complaining. ;D Try one of those round, magnifying covers for your vex, it does a great job of keeping snow out of the lens area. Looney.
