Fish finders??

Recommended Posts


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

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.

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?

      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
