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.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
