Fish Easy 2

4 posts in this topic

Anyone tried the Fish Easy 2? Just bought one and was wondering if anyone had any feedback. It also has surface temp. But is surface temp important or deeper water temp more important?

I just put mine on last night! It is a very new unit. I used to sell finders in Gander Mtn. Maple Grove, so I know a little about them, this one is a great unit for the $$$$. You can't beat the power or detail unless you spend 400+, and LEI is the best! You won't be disappointed. Also this unit is capable of giving you temp reading, it does not come with that standard, check the box it is worded very tricky. It is a different skimmer xducer that you will need if you want temp. They didn't skimp on much else though, this unit is on par with the X85, only drawback is smaller screen. Hope that helped!

I think the unit ya need is the Fish Easy 2T,comes with temp. 240 pixels and 1500 watts of power. If you haven't mounted the unit yet ,see if the store ya purchased it from would exchange for the 2T. Smaller screen to compress those 240 pixels but surely a great buy.I think speed is more important, but both are great tools..

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
