Hey everyone,

Im looking at my options of my new ranger, and was wondering what everyone thought as far as a locator in the dash, or a flasher in the dash?

I you ask me I think you should have Both!!!! A flasher give you that real time reading, when you are running from spot to spot and you don’t know the lake really well its is nice to now what the depth is right under you so you don’t hit nothing with that new boat!!! A GPS is a must, with today chips and things like that it really give you a better understanding of what’s under that water and the structure you are fishing. This will help position you boat better to the structure you are fishing…

So both for this guy… wink.gif

Bass N Spear: I wouldn't put anything in the dash. I'm running a Z boat now and had everything mounted on the console " at eye level" a flasher will read faster than a graph, but think about it. You're running at 60 plus, by the time you look down and see the flasher you've hit what you wanted to miss or missed what you are looking for, by keeping everything at eye level you can look at the graph, gps and water infront of you all at the same time. Also, by having everything mounted on the console you can change things out or go to differant electronics with out any problem or holes left in the dash. I'm running Lowrance 111 on the console on Ram mounts. I did put cabinet door silencers on the bottom of the 111, just to same the gel coat if it bounced once two many times smirk.gif

see thats what i was thinking, if you have the flasher there, its not going to really matter what you have if your going to be running at 60 mph. Alot easier to look at the locator if it is eye level. Thanks for the information.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
