Default Lowrance x125 fish finder Help needed..

Does anyone have a Lowrance x125 fishfinder? I replaced my x75 with this model. When using the downrigger, it shows up the finder at the exact depth that I have the rigger? This never occured with my other finder. Was wondering if anyone else has the same or similiar problem?

turn the sensativity down should cure it. I do not run a lowrance but my hummingbirds do the same thing if set at -1 or higher.

So your sonar is showing your downrigger ball and the depth its at? Whats the problem?

My x75 never showed the downrigger ball. I did not know that its ok to have it show up on the finder. This is a new unit for me and I am learning about it. Does it affect any readings below the ball? I also have a minn-kota trolling motor with a built in transducer connected to a different x125 finder. When powering the motor I get a heavy vertical bar on the finder. This interference affects the finder. How do i get rid of the interference when powering the trolling motor. They are powered from the same battery. thanks again

Had the interference prop a few years ago with my boat there are two trick if it is an external trans try a thin sheet of lead between them and a peice of milk jug if it isnternal take it to a certified tech to have them re insulate the trans

What's the problem? I think I would be concerned if my downrigger weight was in the sonar cone and NOT showing on my finder. Don't turn down your gain, I run my gain very high to see as much detail as possible. Your finder is working the way it's supposed to and it will still show fish and bottom below your cannon ball. I watch fish come up off the bottom and check out the cannon ball on the finder. I can also see fish hit a jig sometimes.

If you have the same frequency front and back on your sonar, you could get some feed back if your transducers are less than 15 or 16 feet apart. If you are running your finder on the same deep cycle that your electric troller is, you will probably get feed back that you are describing, just like a plug in electric razor and the interference it causes on a television. Run your accessories from the starter battery or source other than the source you run your trolling motor.

I love the fact that I can see where exactly the downrigger balls are at. If I see fish higher or lower in the water, I move ( raise or lower) the balls to always be a couple of feet higher than where I am marking fish.

I agree that it is a feature, not a bug, to see your downrigger ball with a fishfinder (maybe your old FF was broken? ). If it bothers you, however, try moving your downrigger to the other side of the boat.
