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

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.
