lx3 problem

9 posts in this topic

I have an Lx3 approximately 3-years old with the tc upgrade.

First time out this year the gain was at approximately 2.The next 3 times out I had to have the gain at 7 to find my jig.Friend I was with said his did the same thing last year and sent it in and they replaced the power head,has anybody else had this problem?I would have thought that it may be a transducer.(I cleaned my transducer,still does'nt work)Having second thoughts about the Lx5 I bought my son for Christmas!Anybody else have this problem and what was the fix? frown.gif

A friend of mine had a very similar problem w/ his lx3. after contacting marcum, he sent it in for repair. I think he was happy with the cust service but was without a flasher for a little while.

I've had this happen on two LX3s. On the first one it was the transducer. On the second one it was the powerhead. They took care of both issues very quickly.

How long are we talking to get the thing back. Just found out mine is doing the same thing. I haven't sent it in yet, and I am leaving on a trip next Friday. Suppose that is what I get for waiting a week before to get the gear out.

Talk to the repair guy and let them know your situation. They'll bend over backwards to get it back to you by then.

Fishing 101,

If you can drop it off at their place in Anoka that will save some time. Like Borch said, explain your situation and they'll work to get it ready for your trip. They did for me before Xmas.

Had the problem same with my LX3tc - told them I needed it for a weekend trip. They fixed in 2 days the end of Dec and had it in time for the weekend. Did it no questions asked. Great customer service.

From the list of things they fixed looks like they replaced just about everything but the shell.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
