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.

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
