Lowrance vs Humminbird

6 posts in this topic

Anyone have a preference over these brands? Have had a Lowrance X91 for a few years that broke and am in process of buying something new. Lowrance's seem to have bigger screens and are brighter...but something seems appealing to me about the Humminbirds.

Humminbird 343c vs. Lowrance 125 or 126df???

No one has opinions on Lowrance vs Humminbird??? Isn't like Democrat vs Republican? I'm looking at an Eagle 500C, Lowrance X510C, and Humminbird 343C.

Give me some advice on the BEST FISHFINDER FOR UNDER $400!!! ;-)

I will give you my coment, even though its not worth anything! I have a Lawrance now, its been good to me. I want a new Hummingbird 997 side imaging, but I cant afford one. So that is my opinion!

I prefer Lowrance, especially for gps but even for sonar only.

I went with a new Lowrance X510C for $370...got a good deal on a display model.... Still selling for $420+ with the ducer online... Still has a 1 yr warranty - so I'll roll the dice.

If I wanted/needed something a step up... the Humminbird 777C2 would have been a no-brainer... Pretty sweet color finder. But this was the best I could find for under $400. I don't need anything better at the current time for the lakes Im on.

Thanks.

I think for 480 vertical pixels or less they are both good. I have the 777c2 (640 vertical) pixels and would recommend it when you can afford it.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
