How accurate are the speed indicators...

3 posts in this topic

on the Lowrance H2O GPS? I tested it driving a car, boat, ATV and it seems accurate but I also use it to determine my trolling speed. So if my GPS says I am trolling at 2.5 MPH, can I trust that? My boat speedometer doesn't read that low.

Captnshorelunch,

I only troll by GPS, the one thing to keep in consideration is that water speeds will vary with current so where your boat may say your going 1 MPH your actual ground speed may vary.

Its more accurate than anything else I have on my boat. Way better than the old paddle wheels. I would say your doing fine using the H2O for your speed.

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
