lowrance x96 for ice fishing?

4 posts in this topic

I'm just wondering how well the x96 would work for ice fishing. I know there is an ice transducer available for it but wondering if anyone has tried it and what luck they had. Would prefer not to have to buy a new machine if i try and fish this winter!

I don't know about that particular model, but my friend bought an x67 and loves it. Likes that you can see the history and is more used to that setup than a flasher.

He got it for the same reason, can use it in the boat in the summer and on the ice. Seems like a smart option to me. He catches as many fish as the rest of us using flashers.

Good Luck!

If thier is a flasher screen on it you should be fine with an ice puck. My 135 has a flasher split screen would be nice to use but I already have a vex.

The Lowrance flasher screen is junk. I use an X67c in regular graph mode all winter and I love it. Not sure about the X96. The X67c has a color TFT screen that is unaffected by the cold. The monochrome screen on the X96 may be prone to getting sluggish in the cold. Of course, if you're in a house, it shouldn't be a problem.
