I finder Hunt vs H2O

5 posts in this topic

I understand the H2O with Navonics chips very well but know nothing about the Hunt model

Do you need to buy a topography type chip to get the best performance out of the Hunt? Would the chips for the hunt also work in the H2O and do Navonics lake chips work in the Hunt model? HTB

I use my old chips from my h20 in my i hunt. I also have topo maps for I hunt. I think this is the best one it has the barometer and so many other features that h2o does not. Works awsome for any application.

I had 4 i finder hunts and had nothing but trouble with them. They would work ok for awhile then they would start having problems aquiring postiong. Finally I had Lowrance send me a H20 and have had no trouble since. I have no idea what the problem was. Lowrance claimed there wasn't anything wrong but when it takes over 2 hours to get position something is wrong. My H20 if it takes over a minute I start wondering what is going on. Like I say I still shake my head over what the problem was. I believe it had to be in the software and maybe this isn't a problem anymore. The thing is you don't gain that much in options to make it worth the extra money in my opinion.

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
