Marcum lx3tc

Question

muc33

What is the minimum depth you would expect this unit to pick up your lure in? I am totaly new to this flasher game and want to make sure I am not messing something up!!! I was out tonight and fired it up, seemed to find a good bottom but was only about 4 1/2 feet deep and even with the line in the same hole as the transducer, I couldn't see my lure? Sorry to ask such a novice question. But what conditions should I be looking for?

I have used my Marcum in 5 feet and can pick up my lure but it has to be basically right under the transducer. You will have to play with the gain a little and probably don't expect to pick up your lure at all times. For example, when I fish this shallow with a jigging spoon, I can pick the spoon up when it is still but when I jig it it will flutter out of the transducer cone and I won't be able to see it.

I feel kinda goofy using my flasher in water this shallow but once you use a flasher you can't fish without it!!

Surface Tension

As said, the cone angle is very narrow at that distance.

You'll have to be right below that with your jig.

One tip in that shallow of water.

Use your Zoom. You'll be spreading out that viewing area over the display.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
