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.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
