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.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
