A Lowrance x91 will do the job quite nicely, Or if thats too much for you, drop down to the x71. Theyre both great units. I'm a big Lowrance fan along with many others. My Lowrance is the first unit that i ever trusted.

Tweet,

Well I happen to think the same. Lowrance is (in my opinion) the best locator on the market. They are a little more expensive than the others but the pay off is far greater. Better resolution, options and durability. The Lowrance X91 is an excellent locator will run you around $400.
The X71 is also good, it has less pixels than the 400 also less peak to peak power. Still a decent locator for around $250. Otherwise Eagle locators are still great. They have always been good however now that they have teamed up with Lowrance (LEI, Lowrance, Eagle Inc.) they are even better.
Check out the Fishmark series which are good locators for the money. Either way in my opinion you can not go wrong with a Lowrance Product. Good Luck

Thanks so much Chev, should a guy buy via the internet or a local dealer for possible service work?

Buy where you can find the cheapest price, 9 out of ten dealers don't provide service work. Lowrance prefers you send the units to them for service and they are very fast and efficient.

I'm with Fishin'Bemidji. Had a Lowrance flasher going on 20 years, company always serviced it quickly. Now we've got a liquid crystal graph.

One word of advice if you haven't already heard it: If you can afford it, get a graph with GPS built in. What a great deal. I've got a hand-held, and it's a lifesaver.

Don't know Lowrance enough to know if the models mentioned above have GPS or not.

I can personally vouch for lowrance service work. Send a unit in, and they charge a flat fee, and fix whatever is wrong. It is a very fast turnaround time too. I think its a good idea, go for the best price and know that lowrance will take care of you if something happens.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
