Which Graph..

5 posts in this topic

I know this topic has been beaten to death, then beaten some more, but it seems that everyone that asks this question has needs for a specific purpose, so here it goes..

I'm looking for a graph that can accurately mark fish and baitfish. The graphs I've used in the past I've never really had faith in. I'm not looking to spend too much, more of something in the $200-$250 range. I've really been looking at the Eagle 420, Lowrance X96, or maybe the Lowrance X67C (Color unit.) What are your thoughts? Thanks much for any help!

I have an Eagle Fishmark 480 which works well for me. I think they are around $200.

Another vote for the 480. Works great, cant beat the price.

ditto. With the 480, the sensitivity can be manually adjusteed and can pick up anything under the water.

From Lowrance/Eagle, the Fishmark 480 will fit your needs. From Humminbird, the 727 has 640 vertical pixels and 4000 watts of power at $280 and the 565 has 640 vertical pixels and 2000 watts of power at $180. The Lowrance units have 1500.

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com
