Marcum interference rejection at tourneys?

Recommended Posts

Anybody out there who was at Saturday's Gull Lake tourney using a Marcum, and was it possible to reject interference enough? What model and how bad was it? Photos make it look like folks were so close together that flashers would be tough to read, especially over deeper water.

My buddy and I were discussing whose new flasher would work better before the Gull lake tourney. He has the new FL20 and I have the Marcum LX5. His screen was completely cluttered, I put mine in his fish hole and switched it to the narrow angle and was almost completely clear, His bait was clearly visable on my MarCum with the gain set very low. I bought a marcum this year because I was sick of fishing with Rick and others in my house and Rick was the only one that could read his screen! Of course he had an LX5 and the rest of us had Vex's.

I was in 50 FOW on Gull w/ an LX-2 there was plenty of interference but I could clearly see my jig and a fish below whereas my brother w/ a Vex couldn't even use it and turned it off after about 15 min. Just wish they made em bite. I could've used a new truck!!! smile.gif

With my LX 5 it was pretty clear the entire contest. Easy to see my lure and fish the entire contest.

I fished on gull for the tournament with a VX-1 and there was a bit of inteference, but I was still able to use the unit. We were sitting in 65 feet of water and everyone had flashers around me. I wouldn't mind getting a tighter coned transducer though for deeper water.

Years ago when I was up there at the contest I had a Vex FL-8 and it was completely cluttered up and useless. I wasn't real happy about that because I can't fish without a flasher!! After some people started to clear out I noticed some guy with one of those Bottomline sidefinders and as soon as he pulled it out of his hole mine cleared right up. It didn't matter what I tried on mine with that other thing in the area. mad.gif

    • I have some of them to but don't have a glue what it is.
    • American Tanager. I had one hanging on my suet feeder most of the day yesterday. haven't seen it today, but I sure hope he sticks around!!!!!
    • Not sure what this bird is called. It only wanted grape jelly. The orioles were thick on the feeders, there were a dozen at a time in the crappy weather. This was in douglas county.
    • I put in my tomatoes and peppers last weekend and built the greenhouses. All week it was nice and toasty in there. I opened one end to vent mid days. They were thriving nicely, leaf tips up. It is suppose to drop to 34 here tonight.  4th year blueberries in front. I pinched blooms the first 3 years. Finally get to try them this year. My rabbit fence is 18" and the snow was deeper. The rabbits put blueberry bush tips on their menu, all vegetative growth below the snow didn't get touched. I am going to re-fence taller around the blueberries by fall. 
    • I just had a bird at my suit that is the size of a cardinal. It was bright red with black wings. Anyone have a idea what it is? 
    • got back from bowstring and feeders were all empty. lotta birds here also. cool that you had some redstarts in. I have seen 2 so far this year. 
    • to bad Berrios couldn't get that last out in the bottom of the 5th to get the win. 15 runs and he couldn't get there. bummer!!!!
