i have had a zercom colorpoint for the last few years nd have never really been able to figure out whether or not it will pick up smaller lures? i can pick up lures like jigging raps but i cant pick up nething smaller such as smaller jigs n minnows or jigging spoons... i turn up the gain but all the does is make the screen harder to decipher what i junk nd what is ligit... n suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated since i am begging to become frusterated...

thanx

You might want to experiment with lowering your transducer a bit further down. Some jigs will show up better than others too. I used to have a Zercom Colorpoint, and loved it. The same group of "cutting edge" guys that have evolved into Marcum.

Good luck!

went out tonite on nest n only caught 1 nice crappie... i put the transducer about a foot past the ice and no difference, i hang the transducer straight down from the arm so im thinking thats not it... its been this way ever since i bought it, so i figured for some odd reason it never picked up smaller lures...

Ice, small lures like demons and such, give a very small egde for the sonar to pick up. You may need to adjust the sensitivity. Think of sensitivity like the volume on your cars radio. Sometimes to hear that station a long way off you turn up the radio. Depth finders are the same.

when looking @ other posts about the colorpoint it seems there mite not be any help out therre... till i did a lil more research and found this post on a Q&A site @ the MarCum site

No, MarCum is not Zercom. We did not buy Zercom nor do we service Zercom. Please call Techsonic at 1-800-633-2576 regarding Zercom products

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
