Waiting for some warm weather so I can mount them in the boat.

Purchased 2 new Humminbird finders. Helix 7 G2N and a Helix 12 G2N.  Waiting on a new trolling motor. I want the new Ultrex 80 24volt but can't see the money they want for it now.  Will keep checking on prices hopefully I can get one by spring. If anyone should happen to see any deals keep me in mind. Got my new trolling motor last week. Not all I need is warmer weather so I can get these things installed in the boat. Oh, and watching a lot of youtube to better familiarize myself with the 2 finders at least.

Funny you should say that Allen ! The other day ,we were catching most of our Pickerel and the one nice Crappie in a spot me and a buddy ice fished about 2 years ago and caught a 26" Pickerel and a 12" Crappie.

GPS is nice when you can take your unit out during warm weather (NOW), and mark various waypoints like weedlines, drop-offs, etc.  THEN, go back during Winter to those same waypoints and drill a hole through the ice onto good cover/structure.

I dont have the expensive GPS -SIDE IMAGING UNITS ,but an old BPS marker buoy helped me and brother Greg stay on a hot spot the other day .

I still love my ICE 35 flasher unit too  Dick !

The electronics of today is far superior to yesterdays. Haven't got a clue of what all it does but we get accustomed to what we use and seem to forget about the rest. So far I love mine but know I will love it more as I learn more.

Gotta say Dick, the Helix 5  has been an invaluable tool for finding productive drop offs outside the weed line that holds Crappie and Pickerel . The Unit is well designed, affordable  and a pleasure to use .

Iv'e been out a couple of times with mine and still confused. These things do so much I guess it may be best to do a little at a time.

Comment by John Sheehan on August 16, 2019 at 12:32pm

Thanks very much Dick ! Been searching for something like this and been coming up empty!
