Larger H2O Screen

4 posts in this topic

I have an H2O with the Lakemaster Minnesota chip. Absolutely incredible. However, is there another unit that takes the same chip that has a larger screen. Don't much care about cost at this stage of the game. My eyes are 126 years old (63 years each eye) and I have to put on my reading glasses to see some of the finer details.

I don't think there are any handhelds that have larger screens but Lowrance does make stand alone units that have 5 inch diagonal screens.

I'm not sure how well these work, but I have seen a magnafying lense that you can buy for I-Finder/H2O type units. It looks like it attaches to the ram that holds the unit (if you have one) and magnifies the image. It might be something to look into? It might not be worth it either, who knows. Just a thought.

No Lowrance handheld units that have a larger screen, you will have to move into Globalmap series.. You can make these units portable as well with a little work, and with the TFT screens you can even use them in colder temps, say for ice fishing. The 3500C is a 5 inch screened unit, that will run you $600.00 or so for the unit and external antenna. Or you can opt for the internal antenna type, the 3600C. This will eleviate having to buy the additional external antenna. But as of now, I am unsure if the problem of having a hard time to lock onto a signal with these types of units have been fixed.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
