H20c

Question

mjrfishing

Hey, i have had my h2oc gps for about a year now and it has a scratch the size of a penny-nickel the the front screen. It is somewhat readable but can be a nuisance when the backlight isn't on. Could the screen ultimately be replaced or am i stuck with a scratch on the screen? Does anyone has any thoughts on what to do?

Talk to Lowrance and see what they recommend. I had some scratches on one of my Lowrance units in my boat and they recommended a plastic polish that really took care of the problem. The screen on your h2oc is a different screen though so I wouldn't use the plastic polish on it unless they tell you too.

I ended up putting one of the stick on screen covers that people use to cover PDA screens to help minimize the scratching as the screen seems to be easily scratched. It's worked well so far.

mjr - grab some Maguire's PlastX cleaner/polish at Fleet Farm or any auto parts place. Spread some on and rub lightly and consistently with a soft, clean rag. Took a ton of scratches out of my H2Oc and made the finish good as new last fall. Also works well on CDs/DVDs. Best $5 I've spent in a while.

I got my screen protector online from what used to be called shieldzone. It is now called Zagg. About 9 bucks with free lifetime replacement IF it ever gets scratched. I have had mine on for about a year with no problems yet. I am happy with it.

Meguires is also what I used, although like I said in my previous post that was with a different screen than is on the H2O.

Just go to Target or Walmart and buy the protectors for the Nintendo Gameboy ;\)

I got mine at Best Buy, but as dtro said they can be found pretty much anywhere that sells electronics.

If you want to protect the whole unit, a neoprean case that was designed for the H2Os - comes with clear window for the screen/buttons and belt clip. Works pretty good, but it adds a little bulk and harder to press the on/off/light button. But at least if I drop it, it is less likely to get damaged.

I got mine from Reeds, think I paid $15-30.

I picked up a Sony PSP protector today at Target for 9.99 (2). I will let you know how they fit.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
