Hand held sonar

Recommended Posts

Got a question about the hand held sonar's such as Marcum LX-i. Are these any good? Can't afford the Vexilar at this time but was wondering if it was worth buying one of these.

They will show you structure and depth but not the fish andnot the fish takeing the jig. Look around there may be someone upgrading from the fl8 to the 18 and you could get a good but for just a little more.

right on if you are going to buy a hand held unit look for a used vex first far more handy in my opinion. I have a hand held and I still use my vex/marcum first I haven't ever been overly impressed with the hand held units.

I was just thinking the same thing. I was thinking of buying a Vex but stumbled across this new machine called the Hawkeye under the Cabelas HSOforum. I read further on that this tracks fish and bottom at real time which means you could be looking at fish that were once there a minute before. Also, lure presentation is not able to be viewed. I think I will just end up going for the proven Vex.

    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
