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

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
