X125 Lowrance

Question

Wallydog

Anyone have any issues with driving rain penetrating the seal and causing the unit to crap out? It's only a year old.

I opened it last night and hope that after drying out it'll boot up again.

any thoughts?

Thx

WD

Had my X125 in pouring rain a couple of times last year and have yet to have a problem.

It should work after drying out, how long that takes is another question.

I have had my X125 for two full season in some heavy rain and have not had any problems, I have had some units in the past that took in water (bottomline) but I have never had any issues with Lowrance or Eagle.

Dried it out well and it did re-boot..............yee haaa

Just need to re-seal it better than the factory did.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.

      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
