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.

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?

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
