Humminbird WPS 60 Flasher Questions.

3 posts in this topic

I have an old Humminbird WPS 60 flasher unit gimbal mount that has been sitting in the shed for ten years. It has the XT-2-16 ducer. The motherboard and transducer were replaced new at that time. Question #1 will these units mark fish? [decently] #2 Has any one ever used this unit for ice fishing? I did contact the Company to see if they would still service it, if needed. They do advertize lifetime repair.
I just purchased a new Vexilar FL-18 for
Ice fishing, but would use the old unit on my fishing boat if any good. Just trying to keep from spending extra money for a second ducer on the boat. Info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Snitz.

how old is your flasher i had a super-sixty that i loved using for ice-fishing, but when it broke humminbird told me that they no longer service any models not still in production but offered me a VERY small discount on one of their current units in exchange for it.

Hi Bobb-o
I do not know. I purchased the boat approx 16 years ago. The unit didn't work at that time. I had it repaired about ten years ago. Put the transducer on the boat at that time, and it's still there. My storage shed isn't heated, so that is why I thought it questionable if the thing would still work. It just says WPS 60 high speed, water proof flasher. Thanks for the reply. Snitz.

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
