How to rig Lowrance 522C for Ice Fishing

3 posts in this topic

Earlier this year I purchased a Lowrance 522C igps GPS/Sonar unit for my boat. Now I'd like to use it, with the Lakemaster chip I bought and installed, for ice fishing.

Mainly I'd like to use the map to get to my desired location. I don't really need to use it as a sonar because I trust the map information as to location and "normal water level" depth. I can confirm the depth, and mark fish with the Vexilar.

I checked the Lowrance site and they have an accessory pack, including battery, charger, case, and transducer for $175. That's more than I'd like to spend. Does anyone know of a cheaper way to rig it to suit my needs?

Thanks.

My dad has a Eagle, and we are thinking of doing the same thing. We are thinking a Motorcycle batterie might work. Then just make a cheap cloth tacle box work.Just a idea!

at cabelas they have a plastic base and a cloth wrap that they use to make there brand of flasher. 20$ 4 each and 20 for the battery. its a tight fit but it does work well. I found a power cable in the bargan cave for 20 $ so i didnt have to use the one off the boat.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
