    I was lead to believe that ice fishing was an excuse to get pizz drunk and that any fish caught were just a hindrance to the drinking. Was I lead astray?

    I paid $350 for my lx3 but it was later in the season last year. I own two. Fish next to Vex 18 in the shack most days...I out power him all day long and the lx3 is quite a bit more sensitive.

    GOOD CHOICE!!!!

    Any one that is informed care to comment on this?



    No more like having a recon team looking out for you VS walking into an ambush.

    So then you are the crutch to your buddies, how totally selfish of you! :l

    My uncle who lives in Wisconsin ice fishes. He gets pizz drunk and watches hockey in his shanty. He said he drinks cause frequent urination is necessary to keep the hole open.

    I dont know what your budget is, but this year I bought a marcum LX7. I had been using a lowrance X67C for the past 6/7 years. I love the new unit. It has a huge screen and lots of customizable display options. I've been running it with a flasher display in the center, and a vertical zoom bar on one side and a graph mode on the other.

    Why are the ice fishing fish finders using the old spinning flasher display technology?

    ^^^^ That's kind of like asking why we are driving vehicles with combustion engines VS electric engines is it not?

    The new technology, and with LCD and LED displays, etc cost a fair amount more, like twice as much. A FL8SE is around $320, and what Ben (2 posts above) just bought is $700.

    BTW, nice unit Ben, I just drooled at one at Cabela's last night. :yes
