You may want to try emailing Lowrance and see what they have to say about it. It sounds like many have had good luck with their service (I haven't had any issues, so I have no personal experience with it). Good luck!

So the light is not coming on with or without external power and you have hit the power button which turns the light on after power up?

If the light is indeed faulty I highly doubt it will be cost effective for Lowrance to fix it but you won't know that until you contact them.

New H2Oc??????

H20 boasts that it will float if you use the right batteries. Because of this the unit is air tight. To replace the bulb if possible would probably mean breaking the unit apart. If the bulb is LED chances are it is soldered to the board. Let us know what Lowrance says.

If they don't want to fix it, ask what they will give you toward the purchase of a new one, or an upgrade to a color unit. A few years back I had a unit that was well off of warranty and quit working and they offered me an upgrade with a nice discount. If they will fix it their turnaround has been very reasonable.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
