Lowrance/Eagle repair

8 posts in this topic

i have a Eagle Cuda 242 that is just out of warranty. I only used it twice and now it won't read depth. I thought it was a bad pin in the trasducer cable so I bought a new transducer but still the same. Is there a place close to the metro besides Lowrance that can look at these? I only use it in the front of my boat when my son is with and don't want to spend much more on the cheap little thing. confused.gif

Try Fish-Lectronics, they're on University near 694.

I talked to them but all they could do was sell me a transducer. I know there is a guy supposedly by Brainerd but don't have his info. Thought maybe there would be someone closer.

Wish I could help but the only other ideas I have about repair would be to call Reeds and see if they know about the guy in Brainerd.

Ebay might be an option. Since you have a new transducer, maybe you could get lucky and find a deal on a head unit that works with the transducer. Might not fit too good with your plan of not spending a lot more money on it though.

Good luck.

Thanks for the ideas. On Ebay they are going as much or more than the local stores. It amazes me what people will pay for some items.

Call Jim Wentworth at Fish Lectronics in Nisswa, MN.

Lowrance emailed me today and said they would cover the unit under warranty. For being 13 months old, I have to give a hats off to them.

I've always felt Lowrance/Eagle have a pretty good customer service. Glad to hear they're taking care of you.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
