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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
