New LCX 28c HD!!!

Recommended Posts


Yes! It has been a good Christmas so far! Especially with my purchase of a brand new LCX 28c HD. I was going to go with the LCX 27 and get the North based Navionics chip for Mille Lacs and Devils Lake. However! This chip was $145, but they told me that for $200 more from the sticker price of the LCX 27, I could bump up to the LCX 28 and have a hard drive that supposedly carries the Navionics (or Fishing Hotspots??) maps for every chip... First of all, can anybody tell me a little more about the LCX 28 and if I'm ok to use the internal maps for Devils Lake and Mille Lacs? Or, do I need to still get the North based Navionics chip for these lakes? I'm new to these sweet electronics so any info would be greatly appreciated.

Also, my buddy and I are hitting Mille Lacs in about 2 to 3 weekends. Can't wait! Good Luck to all.

PS - I've been put on a 3 month job down in STevens Point, WI. I have been doing some eye fishin down there and keepin myself busy. Can't wait to hit Pelican though!

check out the hotspots web site for a list of the lakes in the north package, most are just "Lowrance enhanced" maps, whatever that means. i think where the HD shines is in the memory for waypoints, trails, etc.

      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!
