Marcum LX-5 Question

Question

Walleye71

The wife really came through this year and got me the LX-5. Can't wait to use it tomorrow. Long time Vexilar user (FL-8 and FL-18). Wanted the zoom any where functionality.

Question, I know the cone is on the wider angle by default. What is the rule for which cone to use in shallower water and which cone do you use for deeper water?

I believe the wider cone is for the shallower water but I can't recall.

Thanks.

The wider cone will work good for you at any depth. The narrow cone angle is good for fast drop offs where the fish have the chance of not being seen. The other feature you have to try out is the super fine line. In 18 ft of water I can tell if the minnow head is still on my spoon or if I have jigged it off-Very Cool. Good Luck with the new toy.

You can also use the narrow cone in a fish house so you don't see other lines, only yours.

Hookmaster thanks for another good use. I am going to the NW Angle in a couple of weeks and that will work with the fish houses up there just perfect laugh.gif

Jimalm, I noticed that yesterday. My vexilar didn't have that type of seperation. At first I didn't understand why my jigging spoon was so big on the screen but then I would hold the spoon perfectly still and see the seperation. Very cool. I love the MarCum already.
