I'm in the process of buying a new colored locator. Just wondering what people thoughts are on which kind and model to buy? I was looking at the Lowrance x25 or Eagle 2000 fish strike w/gps. Any comments would be greatly appreciated....<>< <>< <><

I purchased my first color unit, a Lowrance X67C, this past spring and I am very pleased. Good resolution, easy to see in daylight as well as dark, plenty of features to fine-tune it to my preferences.

LCX-25 hands down. Worth every penny.

Humminbird 777c2 or 787c2 if you want gps. I've documented 2.75 inch target separation (2 quarter ounce jigs tied close together) in 35 feet with the 777c2. For graph purposes, I think these are better than Lowrance. I don't know about the gps, but I think they use Magellan components.

I, too, run the 787C. I also run a Matrix 97 on my console. The 787c is better, but has a smaller screen.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
