Great Lakes Region multi species guide Troy Peterson explains the benefits of LCD fishfinder/GPS technology in ice fishing over traditional flasher models. LCDs provide a history of your lure action and fish movement in relation to it – this is powerful information for making presentation adjustments. Combine that with detailed mapping and waypoint ability in the same unit, and finding fish is made a lot easier. Aside from performance, affordability is a big consideration – modern LCD fishfinders like the Humminbird Helix-5 and Helix-7 provide a one-size-fits-all versatility that you can use on open water, ice fishing, kayaks, on your ATV and snowmobile or even the truck.
