Couple of months ago I started having troubles with my Lowrance 125. It seems that the power or sensitivity has diminshed. It started shooting vertical lines or little boxes off pixels. I emailed Lowrance and they said I need a new transducer even thou I bought I new one less than a year ago. Anyway bought another. I used to also be able to hear a really audible ticking from the transducer from even up in the boat. Now I have to stick my ear down close to it to hear it. It won't track well at higher speed and every once an awhile it seems to go nuts. I am having a hard time deciphering what are arches or clutter anymore. Has anyone else had similar problems and can offer some advice? On another note, I have been eyeing those new side imaging fish finders from Humminbird lately. I would hate to give up on lowrance but that technology really has me interested. I would love to hear opinions on if having a newer or more advanced fish finder has helped on learn and catch more fish. Thanks in advance.
