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.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
