Has anyone used one of these yet? How would you compare it to a circular flasher?

I had a an aqua-vu last year and it worked great on clear lakes and it was pretty cool to see northern and bass and sunfish on it. I returned it because it would get really hasey and you could'nt see anything. But I really like my vexlar I think the vexlars are a better deal thats my opinion.

The Aqua-View is fun to watch but I much prefer to use my MarCum LX-3tc for ice fishing. The water depth or clarity does not affect how flashers work.

I believe he's refering to Aqua Vu's attempt at taking market share from Vex and Marcum with thier Vertical Pixel Graph. It is a vertical LCD graph that works like a flasher in grayscale, but in a veritcal fashion. Battery life would far exceed the Flasher because of no motor and LED lights. If they come out with a color version, I would try it for sure, I think the grayscale would make it tough to decipher how strong the signal is. I have not used it, but would like to try it. You may want to move this to the equipment forum.

fisherdog 19,

You are right, but I still have to vote for the MarCum Or Vexilar flashers! Their color screens make them much easier to read.

FisherDog19, you are correct, I was referring to the Vertical Picture Graph made by Aqua-Vu. It retails for about $100.00 less than traditional flahsers but I hdan't heard anything about the functionality of the unit.

If you want LCD screen, full color (multiple options, too), regular sonar, GPS, flasher, etc., I'd recommend the Lowrance M68C Ice Machine. I've had one for 2 years, and love it! You can also get a high-speed 'ducer to use it in an open water/boat situation. I use mine in the bow of the boat, and haven't had any problems with it.

Just another option. But IMHO, you get more bang for your buck with the Lowrance.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
