Lowrance H2OC question

Recommended Posts

Just a quick question for everyone who owns one of these units. I am looking to purchase this for my open water and ice fishing needs. I want to buy the Minnesota Lakemaster Pro SD card for it. Here is my question, are you able to pull up the lake by name off of the SD card or do they make it more difficult to find the lake you want to fish?

on my expedetion I have a music find key and I just push that and spell it out and a couple will show up and then you choose that way. I believe it shows the lakes close to you as you go down the line you should find your lake

ie: I punch in spider lake and five spider lakes show up and the one I want is the third one down. hope that helps.

As stated you can search by name. If more than one lake with the same name is found, it tells you the distance to the lake from your present position to help you determine the correct one.

I never search by name, I just zoom out on the map screen, move the cursor to the lake I want, and zoom back in.

I do the same thing. That way i know that im on what im really looking for, vs other points that i might think its right by name, but not on the right lake. Works out better this way.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
