Graph Base GPS Puck Mount...How can they sell these????

Question

CatManLee

I purchased a mounting plate with the round spot on the back for the GPS puck to sit on for use with my Lcx 17m. I thought it would be nice to have the Graph and puck together, so it could all come off at once. I noticed right away that it wasn't going to work well, It would constantly lose signal while on the water. After a couple trips I decided to move the puck and what do ya know...problem fixed.

If anyone out there is looking at purchasing one of these for your set up, my advice is to save your money and use the GPS attachments that come with your unit to mount it in a clear area with no obstructions.

Has anyone else had this problem with the mount attachment, or am I the only one?

Personally I think they should put a notice on the package saying..."Mounting GPS Puck to this attachment might interfere with satelite signal causing it to lose it's ability to navigate"... grin.gif

Mine has alway worked but not as well as it should. I am updating my Memorial weekend. I picked up one of the ram mount antenna holders so it is still removable from the boat. That should make a difference for me.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
