LX-3tc/LX-5 interference with FL-8


KrashR

Question

I am thinking of purchasing a LX-3 or LX-5, but have a FL-8 that would probably still be used in the same house. I know there are other posts about this question, but will it be easier to block the interference on both with the LX-3 since it is 1500 watts as opposed to the LX-5's 2000 watts. I am leaning towards the LX-3, just because I don't think I would use the dual transducer option much.

I have fished next to FL-18s with my LX-3 and have not had any problems on either flasher. Not sure where you're located, but Dick's in Minnetonka had LX-3s (last year's model) for $280 this past weekend.

I have an LX3-tc and have fished in the same house (8x12) along side a fl-18 and fl-8 at the same time, just hit the IR button once or twice and all interferance goes away, it's awesome. Also fished in the same house as the lowrance x67, no problems.

On a side note, while fishing side by side with the x67 and lx-3, if the x67 was in the water first and turned on before the lx3, we expierienced a ton of interferance on the x67. BUT, if the lx3 was turned on before the x67, there was virtually no interferance on the x67. We tried this in the same holes less than 10 ft away from each other. Just thought i'd throw that out there because of all the threads i've seen about the interferance issues people have been having.

Good luck, you will be very happy with your purchase, whichever you go with!

I fish lx-3 and fl-8 side by side often. No problem for me.

I have fished the fl-8 near( less than 20' and had no problems.

i have fished with both the fl-8 and fl-18 next to my lx-5. hitting the ir on both units seemed to get rid of the interference.

I have an old FL-8 (no IR) and an LX-5 and, for the most part, I have been able to cancel out any interference. The only time I had difficulty was when the two units were about 6 feet apart and we were fishing in 36 feet of water.

Depending on what kind of bottom your fishing the LX-5 will generally wipe out the FL-8.


Can you elaborate on this? I've fished my fl-8 about 6 ft from my friends lx-5 and didn't have a problem after some IR adjustments on both flashers... in about 25 ft of water...

I often fish an LX-5 w/in 6 feet of an FL-8 (w/ IR). Hitting the IR button on both units eliminates 95% of the interference.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
