When it comes to ice fishing, Vexilar is the world leader in three-color flasher technology.

One of the features of the Vexilar FL-8 SE Ice Pro is an enlarged, super strong handle design which supports the gimble bracket making it easier to rotate upwards for vertical viewing. Additional features of the new Ice Pro include:

  • Rod Holder - adjustable to two possible mounting locations
  • Tackle Box - clear for easy viewing
  • Pre-drilled holes in the handle for optional accessories
  • Two side cable holding cleats
  • Designed to hold all of Vexilar's after-market accessories

To maximize the performance of the Vexilar FL-8 SE, the Ice Pro comes fully assembled and factory tested to give anglers a complete package system that has everything you need to start using electronics for ice fishing. Using only quality components, the Ice Pro starts with a tough carrying case that not only holds your sonar unit and battery, but also fits into a five gallon bucket, which is perfect for carrying onto the ice. Mounted in the case is a powerful 12 volt, 7 amp hour sealed lead acid battery, including an automatic three stage 1 amp digital battery charger.

We stock the Model IP0819 Ice Pro which comes with a 19o Ice-Ducer Transducer.

  • Each Pro Pack includes a Vexilar FL-8SE flasher
  • Model PC-100 hard carrying case
  • 12 volt 7 amp hour battery

The FL-8 SE is the core of this Ice Pro. The FL-8 SE is the world's most-popular three color flasher. The hallmark of the FL-8 SE is its bright, three color display. It presents bottom contours and types, vegetation, structure, fish, and bait fish in a multiple color display. The colors indicate the signal strength of the return echoes. Strong echoes are displayed as red marks, weak echoes are shown as green, and medium strength echoes are orange. The multiple color display gives you a great advantage over any single color depth sounder. The ability to instantly spot and identify bottom and fish targets have proven to be simply revolutionary to the world of modern day ice fishing.

Effective for both summer and winter use, the FL-8 SE has a built-in Interference Rejection switch as well a six depth range settings that let you fish down to 120 feet. Exclusive interference rejection technology lets you fish side by side with almost any flasher, LCR, LCD or graph with interference-free operation. The eight step adjustable switch lets you knock out interference between you and another depth finder. FL-8 SE anglers can even fish two depth finders in the same ice shelter or boat. It allows you to have two FL-8s close together on a boat or in a fish house without the annoying interference.

A 400-Watt transmitter and an ultra-sensitive receiver back the vivid display. It is easily sensitive enough to read the thermocline and plankton layers. The colors and high sensitivity also make finding changes in bottom content easy. And ice fishermen know the FL-8 SE has become famous for its ability to see small baits at deep depths.

Features of the FL-8 SE flasher included with the Ice Pro include the following:

  • High Resolution Display - High speed, 525 bit, three color LED display. A backlit depth scale display for easy visibility in low light conditions
  • Three Color Signal Indication - Red indicates a strong signal, orange indicates a medium signal, and green indicates a weak signal
  • Six Depth Scales - 0-20', 0-30', 0-40', 0-60', 0-80', and 0-120'
  • Exclusive Interference Rejection technology - Use the IR circuitry to knock out interference from other, close by electronics. There are 10 different IR settings
  • Power and Sensitivity - Hi Power, 200 kHz, 400 watts peak-to-peak, transmit and ultra sensitive receiver separates targets to as close as 1"

After watching my friends and family use the FL-8 on Lake of the Woods and out fish me I borrowed one and put the hooks to the fish. I now own one. Expensive but I now catch more fish. It helps find the fish. You can watch the fish come to your bait and if it rejects you try some other tackle. I think you need one.
