Advice for FishEasy 2 Portable


Slothin'02

Question

Hi All,

I received a FishEasy 2 for X-mas and would like some advice on how to best use it on the ice. I've messed around with it and gotten a feel for it, just wanted to get your feedback/suggestions.

It seems the best battery option is to go with a gel-cell rechargeable, would this be accurate? Are these available at Batteries Plus, or the like?

It seems that on the ice, a sensitivity of 90%+ works best in order to not only see structure, but also your own lure. Any feedback?

Any other settings that others have found useful or like to use while on the ice?

I've found that the batteries are sensitive to cold. How have you guys insulated your portable unit?

How do you transport your portable? Any recommendations on padded carrying packs/bags?

Thanks for any/all information!

I'd like to know too...I couldn't figure it out so I returned mine.

I kind of miss it now...if only I knew how to make good use of it on the ice.

By the way...I just used a regular 12 Volt battery...worked fine for me.

I have use my FishEasy II on the ic efor the last two years.

Here's what I do.
-I put it in a clear rubbermaid container and cut foam insulation to fit in the bottom to help insulate the bottom from the cold.
-Use a rechargeable 12v battery, one that fits inside the case.
-I turn all the added features off, like fish alarm, fish and things like that.
-I set the Scroll Speed to 100%.
-Use the Split Screen so I can zoom in on the bottom.
-I adjust the sensitivity so that I can just see the lure I am using at the time. I usually set it so that it occassionally looses the lure on the screen. I think this helps reuduce the clutter on the screen.
-I mounted the transducer on an old tip-up.

This has worked for me. I also use mine in a portable shelter.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
