Got this portable Lowrance Elite-3X fish finder for ice fishing and for use on my flat bottom boat, with my mud motor. works great, very portable for taken on ice fishing. Great buy, great portable unit, easy to use. Took a little tuning but the unit works great!!!
We have used this three times and has worked great. Used on the ice at depths from 8 to 30 feet. I would definitely recommend it. We are planning on using it on a float tub next. Awesome unit, Great for ice fishing! I’ve only used my unit a handful of times Ice fishing but it’s lasted all day every time I’ve used it. 8+ hrs Worked like a charm, excellent value for a great unit. Big difference between fish mode and non fish mode in identifying actual fish. Lots of noise identified as fish in fish mode.
I have used it to check that depth of the water through the ice that works well haven’t watched it long enough to see if it will detect fish. That is a good question.It worked best if you carry a bottle of water with you and put a little water on the ice then set your transducer on the ice.
The unit is awesome but I may have been missing a screw…had to get one of my own to setup the suction cup. Also it seemed like I may have been missing some of the instructions. Even with all that, I love the unit and always have been a big Lowrance fan. The fact that this comes with the suction cup + ice fishing/dock transducer makes it a great buy.
You can see your jig as long as it is off the bottom, i use mine for ice fishing, you can also see when a fish comes to the bait, I set the sensitivity at 50 percent, and make sure you have he settings correct to see right below yourself also would work great for drop shooting
