Problem with LX-i handheld

Question

road kill

I just purchaced a LX-i handheld. It seemed to want to always read 3' when I was actually in 20'. I had to move it around 5-6 diffent locations, turn it off again-on again to finally get it to read. finally I took out my old "green box" and had no problem at all reading in the same spots I could not with the LX-i. Keep in mind that I had very clear ice that was only 6-7" thick and I was pouring water on the ice like I normally do with the "green box"

Is this as good as it gets for the LX-i? Any replys would be great.

Thanks!

When electronics, which encludes, vex, marcon, or any battery operated equipment does;t seem to work right, replace the batterys, make sure they are put in right too.I have gotten bad batterys in cartons of new ones, I like the batterys that have the power check on the side of them so I can make sure they are good. Hope this helps, nothing worse than getting to the lake and finding out you have a dead or low charged battery, ruines the whole day. wink.gif

Were you using a bit of water on the ice? Are you suppose to be using a bit of water?

My LX-i will read 3.2 feet if the surface of the transducer gets coated with ice. Just wipe it off on your pant leg after each reading. Works just fine with a little water if you keep it clean.

I know the guy where I got the battery from and he said the batteries were all new that week. You may be right Ray about the ice on the the transducer end. It was cold out that day. Thanks

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
