So I have been thinking a lot lately, and posting, about winter electronic use. I have been considering buying a flasher, but keep going back to the fact that my goal is primarily to catch pike. I was thinking maybe holding off on the flasher until next season. If I bring my LCD Eagle Side scrolling finder out to the lake isn't that going to be better for my primary goal of catching pike? I mean real time info isn't going to help me a ton when it comes to big fish correct? If I could get my side scoller to tell me where the big fish are located wouldn't that be better? For example If I mark large sized fish at 7 feet in 12 feet of water, wouldn't that be much more useful? Is it going to be too cold to operate my side scroll unit?
