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.

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
