lowrance green box


SmilinBob

Question

I recently recieved 2 lowrance green boxes that don't appear to work, I messed with them a bit and it seems like its the transducers that are bad, is there any fix to them ,or should I just get rid of them, thought they might be nice for ice fishing.

Hi...

I have a feeling that technology is a thing of the past and a fix may be out of the question. I have one and it proudly takes it's place in my antique equipment collection. My does work and I have used it on the ice just for grins. It's nothing compared to my LX-3... grin.gif

My suggestion, with all the modern sonars on the market, get one of those for the ice. I recommend the Marcum LX-3. A bit spendy, however it's worth EVERY penny!! Then, keep the one in best condition and sell the other. There are collectors out there chomping at the bit for those things...

Unless the cord to the transducer is cut or broken, I doubt the transducer it self is bad. The big down fall to using those old things is they pick up interference from anyone fishing near you.

New transducers can be used with the lowrance green box. When I used to work at scheels I ordered a few in for customers. It will require both a transducer and a transducer adapter that will fit with the older unit. I don't remember the specific model numbers but I will cost you in the neighborhood or $80 for both. That's usually more money than the unit itself is worth. An ebay search is another option.

I have a couple from my grandpa that are still in the box!

Lowraance Low-K-tor right?

I would be interested in letting one go if you know of a collector

Mudman...

The two places I'd recommend advertising your item is here on the FM "for sale" forum or Ebay. Personally I'd try FM first due to the fact you KNOW avid sportsman will see it.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
