  1. Specs: Built-in support for Garmin CHIRP traditional sonar plus CHIRP ClearVü™ and CHIRP SideVü™ scanning sonars and compatible with Panoptix™ all-seeing sonar (transducers sold separately) If you have the Echomap Plus 73SV - here is what it normally ships with if a package deal......... CV52HW-TM transducer Here is info I found that should help you.... The Garmin CV transducers do not have a center element but do have two side-facing elements, and therefore, offer better coverage to the sides of the boat. The area directly beneath the boat is covered by the combination of these two elements and will work in waters down to 250 feet deep, in ideal conditions. This technique has been proven in the industry to deliver clear sonar pictures with full coverage under the boat, and the Garmin CV transducers do just that. The Garmin GT transducers have a center element which allows for improved depth performance over a CV transducer, but a narrower coverage area that limits the display of returns to the side of the boat.

    Crestliner Eagle Owners.. Fuel Sending Unit

    That’s all I did and it resolved itself. My guess is it created an air pocket not allowing venting easily.

    Crestliner Eagle Owners.. Fuel Sending Unit

    dt5150..... I had a 2150 and had same issues. If I remember correctly, the vent hose sagged and created a trap point. When I pulled the floor section to replace a rotted board, I moved the hose and corrected it. Prior to that I simply put a "no spill" container over the vent when filling and that sufficed until I could correct. Been a while but I am pretty sure moving that hose and eliminating the point causing the trap was all I did.

    Dipsey leaders

    Wire dipsey to flasher - 8lb line and no break offs?
  5. There are a couple available on Ebay...I am sure the price doesn't excite you though.. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lowrance-LGC-3000-GPS-Module-Antenna-Tested-Working/273421702477?hash=item3fa934154d:g:8X4AAOSwfxFbfXSV I had to replace a puck on a back up unit and it ran close to that price.
  6. What you are running for a transducer..not just the head unit? I am running a Garmin 7607xsv with Garmin GT51M-TM and 7608 slave unit networked and it is bar far, the best combo I have run. I run the fishfinder on the 8 and use the 7 for plotter, mapping. Power up one and both power, waypoints saved redundant, maps, wireless, supports autopilot control, radar and engine data.. easy to use after several hours of use. The customer service as stated is great as they helped with the transducer questions I had. The 73SV gets good reviews so you might want to think through your concern before scrapping it.

    Must Have Gear

    8” spin doctors in double glow white, white green dot, chrome, two face are a couple to start with... but everyone has their own preferences. Key is to run what you get comfortable with and find success.

    The green boat revived!!!

    What a blast from the past. I had that same 16' model in the late 80's. Tan with green floor/interior. Had to replace the deck and transom around 90. Took out the two benches and installed pedestals while I was at it. Ran a board across the transom and mounted manual downriggers. Caught loads of fish from my similar boat. Looks great!

    Must Have Gear

    Doesn;t matter if you use a dipsey, slide diver, or Deeper Diver as long as you can dial it in and run consistently at 60-120 feet at 2.5+ speeds. I run #5 chinook divers which are close to 2-1 on wire. And if not using wire in summer, then you are checking your chart against 30lb mono (no braid in flea season) and see how much line out you need to stay that deep. Lot of guys with way more experience than me convinced me to run wire and catch rates were all I needed to see.

    "GPS module not responding"

    I just had the same issue with my older backup Lowrance. The puck is likely failing. Tried factory reset and software updates but ultimately it was the puck. You likely have the LGC-2000 if it's an older one and they run about $100 used when you find them. I bet someone here has a used one sitting around if you ask in classified. Just check which model you have and ask...

    Must Have Gear

    KeithVT - With the gear you have and Crestliner's items above, if I had to add one item on my boat it would be wire set ups. If you are fishing summer kings, I consider it a must have. There are times when the wire divers are firing for kings and the downriggers are dead. A 47LC, diver rod w/ twilli and 1000' 30lb wire can be done for around $175 and worth the expense.
  12. Fairhurst - I'm no expert but the inside waters held bait all week as there was plenty of cold water. If you get w/sw light breezes, then I would start on that inside water - 80+ and check down temps until rods start firing (flasher/fly, spoons, meat). If you get a northeast blow that brings in some cold water, then I might target offshore in the top 50-60' with mostly spoon pattern. I'm sure someone with more experience can chime in though. Only spend a couple weeks a year on Lake O so learning from everyone else myself.
  13. Sorry didn't get the chance to post earlier. Fleas - they were a horror show until the last two days when they seemed to lighten up. Wire, 30 lb mono, downrigger cables all choked with them 7/9 - 90'-115' 6-6 5 kings 12-18 and 1 steelie - (chrome two face spinnie/stud best) 50-80 down 7/10 - 75'-115' 9-13 - 2 browns (11 and 12 lbs) 1 steel, 6 kings - spoons a mix but flashers best - chrome/mirage, two face/glow stud 7/11 - 450'-510' - 17-23 12 kings 8-19 lbs and 5 steelie's 3-7 lbs 25-70 down - spoons - sea sick (gold/silver), 42nd (gold/silver), two face - flashers - sea sick/glow stud, chrome/mirage 7/12 - 450'-525' 3-5 steelies with no kings so came inside to 90'-104' and went 3-4 on kings with two face/glow stud 75 down 7/13 - 65'-105' 7-11 kings 40'-75' down spoon - sea sick, 42nd, two face - spinnie sea sick/stud 7/14 - 75'-105' 9-14 kings and 7 kings, 1 brown, 1 steel - sea sick spoons, spinnies - chrome/mirage, two face/stud 7/15 - 70'-110' - 7-8 lings and a steel - 6-9 AM as leaving - sea sick spoons and two face/glow stud spinnie handful of skippies each day that I didn't really track Outside of the day with east wind 7/11 - consistent fishing for us was fishing the bait on inside waters. Most Kings ran 12-19 lbs with sea sick, 42nd for spoons, and chrome/mirage, two face/stud, sea sick/glow stud being best spinnies. Fished a little meat for the first time and tooks 3 shots on large fish and dropped all three. Wire divers and spinnies took almost all our larger Kings. Thanks to all for the previous sharing as that helped us find fish our first time fishing the Oak. Usually fish east (Sodus to Oswego) a couple weeks a year so this was our first trip to Point Breeze. Definitely a return trip in order.
