Dual Depth Finder Problems????

Recommended Posts

Guest

As an unselfish fisherman I have tried to provide a LCD depth finder for my fishing partner in the front of the boat so they can also see what I am seeing in the back of the boat. They also should have the ability to see the bottom and tolling contour, jigging structure and when I am under way (to help navigate among the rocks). My only problem is that I can't seem to run two Depth finders at the same time without the interference from one mucking up the other. I have them placed close together in the back of the boat (and I know that is a little bit of the reason but don't want to start drilling holes in my boat if there is another solution.) What I would like to do is keep my X-65 in back and up-grade the Front one this year. Is there a LCD Depth finder that has a different frequency that could run at the same time with out the fowling up the back one? I know the Vexilar’s will work with the X-65 but is there a LCD that might?

Goose/ I run three LCR's and a Vex. Your doing the right thing by letting your partner get to see what they are fishing. You have identified the problem. Your running two locators on the same freqency. I run a LMS-350a for my GPS. I then use a x-85 and the Garmin 240 for fishing. The Garmin runs on 200khz which will not interfere with the lowrance LCR's. Also make sure each unit is wired to an independent battery. Or make sure your not wiring any locators to a battery that powers a trolling motor.. D-man

    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
    • O yes I completely forgot about them and they are practically in my back yard. Thanks.
