hummingbird?

8 posts in this topic

I have an old hummingbird flasher off a boat it looks like a vex it doesnt have a flasher or power lead with it i was just wondering if anyone has use one of those on the ice and if you can buy a transducer for ice fishing and where you can get the power cord they both screw into the back. If anyone has done this do they work as well as a vex. It would be nice to not have to buy a vex if i can use my hummingbird.

Thanks.

They'll work fine. Definitely not vexilar fine...But fine. You'll have no trouble seeing fish. Depending on depth and bottom content you'll also be able to see you lure without much trouble. I used the eagle version of what you're talking about on the ice up until this winter. I'll still leave it on the boat till she dies. More of a sentimental attatchment than anything.

Is it a humminbird super-sixty? i had one that worked great for ice fishing, i only had the puck style transducer for it though. it putzed out on my halfway through this season, and didnt think it was worth it to go through the hassle of fixing it. If yours ever breaks let me know you can use mine for spare parts.

well the 'ducer is fried but the power cord works great. They guy at fish-lectronis said all you would have to do to fix the 'ducer would be to splice a new one onto it. Where are you located? you can have the power cord and the ducer, and if you need a battery i can sell you the one i have for it for $15, comes with the charger

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.      You guys would make me walk out first, wouldn't ya?      O this stupid merge junk....$#@! son of a 
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
