I have a chance to buy both at a decent price, just curious which is better.

I have both. there is not much difference between them. the LCX 20 replaced the lcx 18. the main difference is the lcx is nmea 0183 with grey connectors and the lcx 20 is nmea 2000 with blue connectors.

If you ever intend on having a new Hummingbird 997 with sidefinder and hooking them together then the lcx 18 is a better choice because the 997 still uses the nmea 0183 protocol.

A 20 you will be able to network plus as mentioned it is newer.. A 18 won't allow that and it is an older unit

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
