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.

      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:
