Eagle 320 question

7 posts in this topic

Just bought an Eagle 320, will it pick up a jig like a vexilar would?

Yes, it is more then capable of picking up a jig.

Yes that was me. Sure was a lot of good deals there.

I sold everything of mine but ended up buying more then I came with. We'll do it again next Spring for sure.

The Fishmark 320 will not have the flasher like a vexilar, and other Lowrance units. You will probably have to turn the sensitvity way up to see a jig, it also depends upon what size of jig you are using. I would not rely on the 320 to be anything close to what you get from a vexilar on picking up a jig.

I have to agree with ST. It is more than capable. The trick is keeping your jig within the cone angle. Not always that easy when drifting. I could see gobs of cottonwood seeds on my line in addition to my jig last time I was out. I just use the auto sensitiviy most times and it seems to work just fine.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
