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

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
