  7. Thanks guys. I appreciate your help but got rid of the Lowrance long ago. I'm stickin' with Humminbird. Lotsa parts/accessories available for 'em and I've had good luck with their service. I also have a friend who has spent a lot of time with Humminbird reps on the phone while he was on the water and they were great to help him just learning the fine points of a new Helix. I'm sure someone has some bad stories about 'em but I haven't heard any.

  10. Hey Chascurt, Just a thought..did you try to reset the unit you have? I am not sure how to do that on your model. I do believe you will loose way points so you kay try to write them down if possble.
  11. Hi Charlie google lowrance repair theirs a small company in Oklahoma that still works on repairing lowrance units if they have parts. Sorry I don't have their phone #. Usually $150 to repair, might be better with new unit? Good luck "Loneranger".

  13. 40 degree water is part of the "turnover" when the surface and bottom water are almost even. There is almost no difference in temperatures from top to bottom.

  15. Lowrance is no longer a family company. Owned by a company that makes a bunch of electronics. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  16. The way Lowrance explained it to me was we buy and import parts and assemble the units here. When the parts are gone that's it. Ever since the Lcx series I had nothing but trouble. Spending my money elsewhere Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  17. Cheeze....... I have been running Garmin units and don't have any data on their customer service. Seems I never need it.
  18. As the seasons go by Lake Erie’s water temperature changes the fish are close to the Buffalo Harbor and around of July they begin travel past Sturgeon Point areas to west of the Cattaraugus Creek . By September with cooler nights they return to the Buffalo areas. I base this on over sixty years experience fishing on the lake, both hook and line and gill net operation. Operating a head boat out of Buffalo will not be successful after July 1st. By then the Cattaraugus Creek area is more productive. By late August the fish will return to the Buffalo areas. The success of a head boat operation financially is operating in other areas. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  19. I'm hearing the same things over and over about Lowrance,...terrible CS and not good quality in their newer units, if it breaks out of warranty, you're screwed!!! I think my next unit is going to be a Garmin...hearing lots of good things about them, their units, their quality, their CS !!!! My 2 cents...
  20. It is my understanding that when you see the bulging eyes or insides in the throat area that the damage is done. The fish might swim down in a lively fashion but there is no reversal of the process. If you aren’t seeing signs of pressure change damage, you maybe releasing fish that have a good chance of living. To me the DEC is trying to raise angler awareness so folks can adjust their tactics so the resource is not wasted.
  21. Thanks Mr. We recently caught some perch in a lake Ontario bay in 50 FOW at 40F. When small ones are released, you can see them (on the graph) go straight to the bottom. They never appear back on the surface over the course of the 2 hours that we are there. So I don't know if they live 5 minutes, or 5 hours, or a normal lifetime, and I was wondering if there was any data out there at colder temps. Perhaps temp has no effect, perhaps it does. Very few of these "cold water caught" fish suffer from bleeding gills, that I see on perch harvested from similar depths at warmer temperatures, and that also may or may not be temperature related.
  22. I did not attend last weeks meeting, however I have sat in on several DEC sessions where barotrauma was discussed. The “takeaway” that I have is that there is very little an angler can do with perch and walleye to reverse barotrauma. Their data suggests that using release tools, reeling slowly, or fizzing the bladder are not effective in a meaningful way to increase survival. As this is an air pressure situation I don’t believe water temperature makes a big difference in survival. Once the internal organs are damaged that is pretty much it. So an angler should consider keeping those fish or look to move to another area where fish could be larger. My belief is that the DEC is discussing it to raise angler awareness not that they have a solution to the problem. Perhaps you might find additional info on DEC website. Hope this is helpful.
  23. X 2. That’s what I use most of the time. I use 12 pound on my rigger poles. Everything else is braid with 20 lb leader. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  24. The released perch are not wasted. If the gulls eat them or they sink to the bottom they become forage for the bottom life that consume them. The main considerations are controlled harvest to prevent starvation of the biomass presence in the lake. Stunting down of perch growth and survival is having a balanced harvest. You can only feed a few cows in a pasture till they must be moved. The same management is necessary for fish in the lake. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
