Are you talking about the X67c and M68c, or the new 522c?

I have an X67c and it's the bee's knees.

I have the same question. I have a 102c in my boat. Lowrance has an ice fishing package for this unit for $175.00. Should I buy it and save $200.00 over a Vex, or should I go with the Vex?

Both Marcum and Vexilar have very affordable and very functional ice packages for around $250. I would check with Matt or Pat at Thorne Brothers on which one could fit your budget.

You can certainly make use of your summer electronics in the winter, but often you're putting those units in situations where they may not perform as well as a flasher or may be prone to damage through the abuse of winter fishing and conditions.

I used a 102c for ice fishing last year - worked great and since it is the same screen as the x67c/68c only larger it can handle the cold just fine. All you need to buy is the ice transducer and a power cord as well as the battery so you don't need to spend $175, more like $115.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
