Humminbird 300dx

6 posts in this topic

I was thinking of buying a Humminbird 300 TX and was wondering if anyone else has this unit or knows someone who has. Any comments would help a lot. Thanks

You mean the TX? Is the tribeam what you want? At least go up to the 400tx. Or go with the Eagle Trifinder 2. If you dont want the tri ducer spend a little more and get something a lot better. I would recomend the Garmin 240 as a good mid price range sonor.

Yeah I mean the TX. I was getting my letters messed up. I dont know that much about finders for the boat. Not sure what to look for in a finder. I have a vex for ice fishing and that is really easy to run. What is the difference between the tri ducer and a different ducer. I am not gonna spend a lot of money on my first finder. Planning on getting a different boat in a couple years and will get a good finder then. I mainly want one now to see depth. I was hoping stay under $200. I'm not a hardcore fisherman. And with my wife having our first baby this summer, I probably wont get out a lot after she has it. Thanks for any help.

I bought a Humminbird 300tx 2 yrs ago. It seems to work for what i need it to do. I also got the speed/temp sensor also. I saw at Galyans they are on clearance for $179 in Bloomington. I don't remember how much I paid for it but it seems like a good price. I hope this little info helps.

I would highly recommend the Lowrance X-51 which run just under $200 and has a lot better resolution and more power. It comes standard with temp and a flasher mode. A speed sensor is also available.

Thanks for the input. Satchmo, I will look at those X-51. They look pretty nice and it is keeping me under 200 dollars. I am gonna be going to Cabelas in SD during Easter and will probably decide then. The resaon I was looking at the humminbird is because it seems to be able to do what I need in a depth finder. There is also a rebate on it and you get a nice soft sided tackle box with it. Any more input out there I would love to hear it. Thanks

    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....
