Marcum LX-5

Does anybody else have a issue with the bottom markings moving about a foot every few seconds. The flasher works fine but it is a bit annoying. I am sitting in 20 FOW and every few seconds I jump from 20 to 21 FOW. It also does it when I have the zoom feature on. It still marks fish fine but I would like to find a remedy to fix this. The IR button does not fix this issue. The ducer also looks to be in fine condition.

Thanks,

PERCHKING

Deitz,

Yeah it is weird you are sitting there watching it and all of a sudden all of the LED's including my jigs will move up a foot then back down a foot... The first time this happend I was fishing on Lake Superior for Herring and I was like OH BOY here I go I thought I was being pulled out...

But now it is happending pretty much all the time.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
