Can you stand another locator question?

16 posts in this topic

I was just wondering what you guys are running for locators and what you wish you where running?

x-15, 97 and 87. Marcum LX-3 when out for Crappies.

I want to put a 26c on the dash and move the 15 to the bowmount. My back pay needs to get here soon!

LCX26,332,FL-18 and the old bottom line 5300.

I donno for now I'm prety happy with the units but the new larger screen Lowrance units would be a nice thing to have

I am running two LCX-15mt's in my boat. I love them. With the LakeMaster chip they are great to fish with.

I guess if money was no object I would probably go with a LCX-110C in back and a LCX-26C up front. Or maybe just two 26's.

I just bought another LakeMaster chip about two weeks ago. It works great with that. I know some of the newer Navionics Premium chips won't work with it.

Question on what might be termed "primitive cool..."

does anyone have, or know where to find online a good tutorial how to use a Lowrance Green Box? one came with the boat I just bought, and I've never used a flasher before.

thanks~

Grant

Navionics Premium does not work with the x15 I already tried and had no success.

I think I'm in the minority, but I'm running a Humminbird 585c on the bow, an X37tx on the dash.

I say minority because I don't see alot about Humminbird locators on here, but I thouroghly enjoy mine.

Lowrance LCX-25C dash, 350A and LX-5 on the bow. I would love to have another 25C on the bow, but then again...I mostly stare at the Marcum. grin.gif

I currently have a Lowrance LMS480 on the console.. and a Lowrance X19 on the bow...

IF money were no object I would like either a Lowrance LCX25C on the bow OR I really like the looks of the Hummingbird 987C, that looks like one sweet unit!!!! I would also like a GPS up front... so if I replace my Console unit, I would put the LMS480 on the bow.

I use a Lowrance X-51 on my console and X67C on the bow troller. I have a portable hand-held GPS I use for my lake maps. I also have land contour maps for the GPS which I use for hunting, 4-wheeling, and other land-based activities.

Humminbird 777c2 at the console and a Fishmark 480 or Clearwater Classic 2EL on the bow. Garmin Map76 and Lowrance H2O gpses at the console. The H2O has the Lakemaster MN chip and the Garmin is for setting virtual markers with its 20 foot zoom capabilities.

I just came across the manual for my green box. Leave an email addy and I can scan and send you the pages. It's only about 8 pages.

X-125 and a Vexlar FL-8 on the bow, X-125 on the console, GlobalMap 3300 for the GPS. What would I really, really, want? Well a Northstar 8000i would do nicely but how to fit all that stuff into my Lund?

      Sounds like my problem, Thanks

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
