Ground Speed on iFinder

4 posts in this topic

I have and love my Lowrance iFinder H20 C. smile.gif However, is there a minimum ground speed reading? Last weekend, I was trying to monitor my trolling speed and could not keep a reading at the slow speed, somewhere between 0.80 and 1.30 mph. It would work and then it would cut out. Most of the time it didn't work at all. frown.gif Is there a setting to improve the accuracy of this reading or any other suggestions? I would love to be able to control my trolling speed.

I've noticed the same thing on my H2Oc. I haven't tried messing with it, but it'd be cool if someone knew the answer!

My older Magellan Meridian seems to work below that speed, but the readings are not always stable. Rocking of the boat, etc., all cause the speed reading to fluctuate some tenths of MPH when going that slow.

I have an H2O and it will go down to .5mph for me when trolling. When your doing the readings, make sure you're acturally moving(got mad once at it until I figured out the wind was nuetralizing me) and your sataliet signals are strong enough. To get a good reading going slow you will need more sataliets.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
