Fish finders??

Recommended Posts

phillyfacks

Hey guys looking for alittle advice on some fish finders. I have a Lowrance X67c right now and I use it both on my boat in the summer and on the ice in the winter. I'm looking to upgrade to something with GPS but still be able to use in both summer and winter. I know Lowrance has the M68c that seems pretty good and able to use for both...anyone with any information or comments on this unit or other options would be great!! Thanks

phillydog,

First off may want to ask this in either the ice or equipment expert forum for more responses.. But either way, I have an M68c and it is a nice unit for the GPS. But it is a very basic GPS, won't accept Map Cards, and transfering points or updating the software isn't an option really. You can manually input coordinates, but no way to connect to Computer.

Right now what I use is my LMS320C on a Blue box for the GPS only and then use my Showdown for the Flasher function. As I only need the GPS to get me to the spot icefishing.

And of course the 320 is my standard on my boat in the summer for both graph and GPS.

Why not just get a handheld GPS, as many on here would agree with me that the lowrance handhelds are a very good product.It supports the lakemaster and Navionics cards. I have a iFinder hunt and in my boat I have the 337c, I use my cards in both units. If you get a lowrance make sure you get the vehicle power cord with it and then you can hook it up to a 12 volt source and won't go through batteries as fast.

      We did well Thursday, Friday and Saturday out front of Pine just out of the gap in 19ft. Got on the lake just fine Saturday....was actually better than the previous two days as far as rough water is concerned I thought.

      Welcome back Fishandfowl! Congratulations on your bird. It seems like it has been a tough year for many. Hope you can stick around and share your adventures with us some more.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far

      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller?

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Looks good Cliff! The perch look mighty tasty!
