Hi all

Been a lurker for a while- first post. Fairly new to ice fishing and I have read every forum posting on flashers that I can find and I finally dove in and bought a showdown 5.6-- mostly for its ease of understanding..so what I am asking is any of you showdown owners have any first time advice--going to try to get out this weekend- am really excited. Thanks in advance

I have a Vexilar myself and also just ordered an Ice Pack for my Lowrance 520C, but I just wanted to say take your time walking out on the ice and stay safe!

After that good luck and welcome to ice fishing. You'll have a blast!

When switching holes mine sometimes freaks out. Found out if I just hit the up or down button it locks on the bottom and reads fine. I really like the zoom function after locating fish. Try and keep the sensitivity as low as you can and still see your bait. It has been a good unit for me for 4 years.
