Power to graph cutting out

4 posts in this topic

I've got my Lowrance LMS-332C hooked up to my starting battery and every time I start my big motor the graph's power flashes off for an instant. I know this isn't an ideal situation, but I thought it was better than hooking it up to my trolling motor batteries. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to get it it's own battery? Could I hook it up to my trolling batteries even though they are 24V? Thanks in advance for any advice.

When you start the outboard you get a heavy draw, enough to turn the sounder off. Sometimes when the battery isn't 100% that'll happen. Its best not to run anything off a starting battery for sake of better battery life.

My graph does the same thing sometimes when I start my motor and I have duel starting batteries that my motor is hooked to. Not to much you can do about it I guess.

Buddy of mine had that happening with his 332. His battery was old and replacing it solved the problem. Might be something to think about.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
