Marcum LX3 question

Question

FISHON71

I've been having a problem with my LX-3 and just wondering if anyone could help maybe I wont have to send it in. When fishing I have to have the gain turned up to 10 all the time to see my jig. Even in shallow water 8-14 ft. have to move it to see it on the flasher. Any deeper water and its hard to see it at all. I dont really want to have to send it in during the season if I dont have to. If anyone has any info it would be appriciated. Thanks

Most likely a bad transducer.

I agree with the other posters. Give them a call...I had the same problem at the start of the season. I got a new one in just a couple of days......I had to pay for it. I am not complaining...just letting ya know.

I have one of the first models and had to send it in twice for transducer issues , each time it cost me nothing but postage and the turn around time was within 5 days from when I sent in in through regular mail. Cost was about 7 bucks with insurance.

Shoot them a e-mail or a phone call and they will help you get back on the ice in no-time.

I had the same problem on an LX-3tc. Had to replace the transducer. I think it will cost you around $70, but I would call their support.

Transducer. They had bad epoxy on them a couple of years ago. Call Marcum and talk your way into a free one. You may need to send the bad one in before they send you a "free" one. The difference is amazing once you get a good one. Good luck.

      Thanks Wanderer.  Fall fishing on Rainy Lake is special.

      Where on South Pine Island?   We live on South Pine Island East of Canfield Bay, and Bears roll through our property occasionally.  We have outdoor speakers hooked up to SiriusXM that we usually leave on to announce our presence.

      After getting a drink he went to lay down. Wasn't the least bit concerned with me. Eventually he put his head down and and obviously wanted to sleep so I moved on and let him get his rest.

      I use primarily daiwa Sealines and upgrade the drag disks to carbon fiber drag disks.   I do use Okuma Convector line counters on some of my salmon rods.  The magnas are just too cheaply built to hold up for salmon.  Probably just fine for walleye, pike, etc.

      That’s interesting.  I had not seen one either since we got our cabin in 2013, then caught this one on my webcam a few weeks ago.

      This is the first one that we've seen in the six years that I've been up here. This was a few weeks ago at a my neighbors man cave in the woods behind our place.

      Not sure how common bear sightings are on the lake but I spotted this guy on the South Shore of Pine Island getting a drink. This is now my phone wallpaper. I've seen lots of bears but this was my first Minnesota bear.
