Ground Speed on iFinder

Question

Deep_Sinker

I have and love my Lowrance iFinder H20 C. smile.gif However, is there a minimum ground speed reading? Last weekend, I was trying to monitor my trolling speed and could not keep a reading at the slow speed, somewhere between 0.80 and 1.30 mph. It would work and then it would cut out. Most of the time it didn't work at all. frown.gif Is there a setting to improve the accuracy of this reading or any other suggestions? I would love to be able to control my trolling speed.

I've noticed the same thing on my H2Oc. I haven't tried messing with it, but it'd be cool if someone knew the answer!

My older Magellan Meridian seems to work below that speed, but the readings are not always stable. Rocking of the boat, etc., all cause the speed reading to fluctuate some tenths of MPH when going that slow.

I have an H2O and it will go down to .5mph for me when trolling. When your doing the readings, make sure you're acturally moving(got mad once at it until I figured out the wind was nuetralizing me) and your sataliet signals are strong enough. To get a good reading going slow you will need more sataliets.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
