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

4 posts in this topic

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.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
