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.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
