question for eyewarrior

10 posts in this topic

eyewarrior, on your 111C (I think that's what you have?) do you have the 200 khz transducer or the dual transducer?

I've got the 110C w/o dual tranducer. I think the 50khz might work well on Mille or LOW pulling cranks. If I were to do it again and the cost is similar I think I'd get the double.

One more follow up question for Eyewarrior, or anyone else with Lowrance fish finder/GPS combo. I presume that if you have the dual frequency transducer, you can show both the 50 and 200 kHz screens, and the GPS screen all at the same time?? Or is it only split screen fish finder and you'd have to toggle back and forth between fish finder and GPS? Does anyone have a Lowrance with dual transducer and GPS, what do you think of it? I am considering a Lowrance fish finder/gps (with mapping). Eyewarrior, I would think the 50 kHz gives you more coverage to the sides, and would pick up some of the fish that move to the side when you are trolling. I currently have a dual transducer on my current fish finder and like it. Thanks.

HAHA I have a Lowrance and I need some major practice with it before I can answer any of your questions. I think I would really benefit to take a class on them or find someone who really knows how to use them to spend a day fishing with me.

You can only have 2 windows /split screen so not possible to have 50/200/gps all at once.

A question for you with the dual tranducer how accurate is the depth shown w/ the 35 cone? or do they compensate? Doesn't the 35 cone also show you the same information as the 12 just covers more area. I would think for trolling application you would only need the 35 cone. Where the 12 cone comes into play is on sharp breaks. Just my thoughts maybe my thought proccess isn't correct. For the extra $50 I would deffinatley get the dual cone!!

In my "expert" (?) analysis, the 50 and the 200 seem about the same except the 50 seems to show a wider area and hence some more fish show up on the 50, like when trolling deeper water. I interpret it this way, if the fish mark is on both screens, the fish is closer to below the boat, but if it only shows up on the 50 screen, the fish is farther to the side. For me, for whatever reason, when trolling in deeper water (I have experimented with trolling over deep water on Green Lake for walleyes)a lot more fish show up on the 50 screen and as I said I interpret this as fish moving or being to the side, and I should be using planer boards.

Anyway, thanks for the input eywarrior.

Since I started this and for what it's worth, the lowrance website recommends a 200 khz for freshwater applications due to superior definition and target separation and the dual frequency transducer for saltwater and for downriggers on the Great Lakes due to the 50 can read deeper and wider, (but with less definition). confused.gif

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.
