Running a Lowrance LCX-104 and Vexilar FL-18 off the back?

6 posts in this topic

The freezing temps got me thinking about ice fishing today, and the fact that I have a perfectly good FL-18 collecting dust during the summer months. I recently purchased a new open water rig and was wondering if I could mount a high-speed transducer for my FL-18 next to my LCX-104 transducer? My main concern is interference between the two units. Anybody else have the same/similar setup?

Thanks in advance!

Should be fine as long as the two transducers are running the same freq.

You mean should be fine as long as the two units are NOT running the same frequency. I don't know the frequencies but my guess is that they are the same (or close enough, like 200 mhz and 192 mhz) to cause interference.

I get interference on my Lowrance when I run my Vex. The depth jumps all over the place and the screen get cluttered. The Vex seems to work fine in this situation. I even moved the transducers farther apart but still have the interference. Is there a solution?

I run my Vex off of the transducer in my Minkotta and I run a Lowrance off of its' transducer at the stearn. I use a switch to switch the Lowrance transducer between the bow and console.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
