Re: Vexlars Vs. regular fish finders
Im sure others might know better, but a buddy of mine just called the manufacturer of his open water finder and they said the screen is only good and will stop working at freezing temps. I know my little portable one doesnt work for ice either. Maybe some will.
You might want to check with the manufacturer of any finder you want to use and see if they have any temperature related information they can give you. In my experience, its just the cold that messes them up.
The fishing buddy is good for ice and has an LCD screen similar to the other finders, but the fishin buddy has an "ice" setting that my other finders do not.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
