    You can't argue with success. Most of the graphs have adjustable scroll speed . After you get some experience with the machine you can usually tell what kind of fish it's showing.

    YOY smelt with 4-7 pound salmon in and under them. Pretty colors and good times

    I've already told you more than I know.

    Flashers are all around better. The only big issue I have with a graph (even though I use one), is the LED will freeze up if it gets super cold and you're not sitting in a shack or a house.

    A certain young man couldn't get out of bed that morning. His loss was my gain.

    I have an older, early 90's Raytheon unit and will leave the screen lights on while on the ice. Never had an issue w/ freeze up and I don't use any type of shelter. I'm also not out there at 0 degrees though.
    I love it when a plan comes together!

    We've only ever had issues with LCDs freezing really bad in negative 20 or lower. This is with my garmin and a friend who had a lawrence. They can get a little slow at 0 or so. IT's no different than the lcd display in people's cars. Go start your car when it's really cold and play with the radio or whatever. It's the same thing.

    I fished this past Thursday. Set 4 lines for togue and then moved around jigging. 100% of the fish came on jigs (not many fish). If I had just set lines I would have been skunked I believe.

    I fished Sunday. Set 2 lines for trout and 2 for whitefish. 5 fish total on tip-ups, over 50 on jigs. A flasher and an assortment of jigs sure can put a lot of fish on the deck in sort order. Next time I go, I doubt I'll bring any bait and tip-ups.

    Do you just place the transducer on the ice , do you have to use anything to enhance the contact between the ducer and the ice ?

    I place it under the ice.
