graphs and flasher

Recommended Posts

We run two X-75's on our boat and for a couple of different reasons we're considering adding a FL-18 also. Will we have interference problems if we do this?

I used my fl8 along with my 350a and did get enough interferance that I shut one down, both 19deg ducers, will be trying again with my fl18 and 12deg..?

Scoot Yes you will get interferance. Im not sure why you would want the 18 in the boat when you have 2 x75's. I guess you could point it at boats that got to close to you.
Im just not a fan of vexilars. The only reason I bought one is because I got tired of getting interferance from them while ice fishing.

The primary reason has to do with separation-the flashers simply get a lot better seperation, particularly the 18. I fish with a buddy who runs a graph and a FL-8 and he often marks a lot of fish with his flasher that he can't pick up with the graph.
Also, for open water trolling in the summer the flasher would be nice- no major settings to mess with, just the depth adjustment dial.
Anyone else have any idea how much interference I may have to deal with?

scott, I dont have a fl 8 or 18 but I do have a zercom flasher that I run with my X-15 and I ran my clearwater classic with my 350A all the time on my last boat and had no problems.I dont understand why you would have interferance with just that brand.

Because its a Vexilar!
If your runnin your gain hard enough for a double echo chances are good the Vexilar is going to interfer. Khz dosent matter, I run souders with the same khz with no interferance. I can give you a dozen combo's that that run great together and the Vexilar isnt in any of them. Find out for yourself and test the 2. Dont baby the gain and try deep,shallow, hard and soft bottom. Good Luck, ST

    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
    • Wow did Butler look good lastnight! Saw a lot of things (particularly in the 4th quarter) that show this team is NOT very good without Butler. Apparently the fans have no ill will towards him, as they MVP chant was getting pretty loud.
