Lowrance Green Box

Anyone know how many watts these things were?

I have one, wondering if it would be any good for ice fishing.

I think they were only around 400 watts. I had bought one a few years ago to use on the ice and I know of a lot of people that do. I then thought I got a good deal on an FL-6 that wasn't and then walked into a sweet deal on a LX3. Thus I never tried the green box.

I used one while ice fishing for years and it worked fine for this. It will show the fish going through the cone and that is what I needed the most. I really cna't remember if I could see my jig or not.

I used one back n the day when I was a hard fishing teen ager. It show fish very well and your lure depending on what you're using. Lots of better options out there but it'll do the job.

I used one this last winter a few times.

Problems

-very susceptible to interference

-couldn't see lure (very important!)

It's good for finding the depth, but for ice fishing it didn't work well enough to justify brining it out anymore. I still have it. I'm keeping it because it only cost me a $1 and it looks cool.

I finally broke down and bought an really old FL-8 that I used several times this winter. I now own a brand new Marcum LX1 that I can't wait to use this winter.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
