Fish finders??

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys looking for alittle advice on some fish finders. I have a Lowrance X67c right now and I use it both on my boat in the summer and on the ice in the winter. I'm looking to upgrade to something with GPS but still be able to use in both summer and winter. I know Lowrance has the M68c that seems pretty good and able to use for both...anyone with any information or comments on this unit or other options would be great!! Thanks

phillydog,

First off may want to ask this in either the ice or equipment expert forum for more responses.. But either way, I have an M68c and it is a nice unit for the GPS. But it is a very basic GPS, won't accept Map Cards, and transfering points or updating the software isn't an option really. You can manually input coordinates, but no way to connect to Computer.

Right now what I use is my LMS320C on a Blue box for the GPS only and then use my Showdown for the Flasher function. As I only need the GPS to get me to the spot icefishing.

And of course the 320 is my standard on my boat in the summer for both graph and GPS.

Why not just get a handheld GPS, as many on here would agree with me that the lowrance handhelds are a very good product.It supports the lakemaster and Navionics cards. I have a iFinder hunt and in my boat I have the 337c, I use my cards in both units. If you get a lowrance make sure you get the vehicle power cord with it and then you can hook it up to a 12 volt source and won't go through batteries as fast.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
