Reading the Lowrance

5 posts in this topic

Where can I find a good tutorial (preferably a video) on setting up, reading and using my LX37C Lowrance? The unit works just fine, but I would like to be able to fine tune it better. The manual just doesn't seem to do the trick for my learning style. I learn better watching and doing than reading and doing it wrong...

Doc Bruce Samson really knows what he is talking about when it comes to Lowrance.

[Please read forum policy before posting again. Thanks. Admin]

One thing to remember when you go to manual settings is that everything has a teeter totter effect on everything else. For instance If you change your sensetivity you may also need to change your color line for the best veiw. Speaking of that your color line is generally best between 72-82% depending on your other settings. Ping speed also plays an important role when trolling slowly or stopped it should be at 25% or even zero. If you start to see vertical lines showing up on your graph odds are that you need to adjust your ping speed. If your up on plane set ping to 100%.

It takes some getting used to but pretty soon you'll be able to fly through the menu in no time.

Hire a guide to take you in your boat and teach you how to use it... thats what I did yesterday... and PS if you run your colorline that high you won't be happy how a transition to soft bottom looks...

Doc Bruce Samson's "Lowrance Instructional DVD part 1", "Understanding Sonar and Interpreting the Display DVD - Part 1 - Basic", and the New "Understanding Sonar and Interpreting the Display - 2 ADVANCED" are excellent training tools for the Lowrance product line.

(These do not cover the new HD line.)

Very straight forward tutorial and not hard to fallow, he teaches you to get the most out of your unit. They sell for $30 and most major sporting electronics retailers have them. You can find them on his web site too, do a Google for Doc Samson and it should pop up.

I happen to know Doc is working up a new DVD training series for the new Lowrance HD line, so watch for that too.

I highly recommend Doc's DVD's, they are the best tools for education available today for Lowrance/Eagle sonar and GPS systems.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
