Eventually, theylearn thehot spots thatproduce fishconsistently. They discoverthrough experi- encewhere, and at what depth, they canexpect tofind the fish they want at anyseason. And theyrealize that theseproductive areas change throughoutthe yeardepending onwater level, temperature,food, and otherfactors. Withthe X-25, anyonecan eliminate guesswork and concentrate onthe areas wherefish are likelyto be.Even ifit's thefirst time onthe lake!The most efficientway tobecome acquainted witha bodyof wateris to surveyit with yourX-25. Start witha mapof the lake,if possible, and indicatethe promisingspots inrelation tolandmarks onshore. Asyou go aboutyour survey,your X-25 will tell you thedepth and typeof bottom.It will alsoreveal suspended fish. Keep a fewmarker buoysin theboat, ready totoss overboard. Whenthe X-25indicates aschool offish, throw thebuoy out. With theschool thusmarked, you can make your turnand come backto fishin exactlythe right spot.This is essentialwhen you're far from shoreon abig lake. Unlessyou markthe schoolof fish when you're overit, you maynot beable tofind itagain. BAITFISH Theimportance ofbait fish tosuccessful fishing can't beover-empha- sized. They arethe principle foodof all game fishin most waters.Bait fishare theplankton feeding foragefish, such asminnows and shad. Baitfish can alsobe theyoung ofgame fish, such ascrappies, bluegill,and bass.Most baitfish concentrate withinfive feet of thesurface where sunlightpromotes thegrowth ofthe planktonon which they feed.One methodof fishingis to use theX-25 tQfind thebait fish first. With theFish ID feature off,a schoolof bait fish will looklike a"cloud" on thedisplay. Usually, gamefish will benearby, often directlybeneath theschool of baitfish. 22SPEED/TEMPERATURE SENSORINSTALLATION (Requires OPTIONAL LST-T Speed/Temp Sensor) Mountthe speed/tempsensor on theboat's transom ina locationwhere theflow ofwater isthe smoothest.There should be aminimum ofturbulence and air bubbles inthe chosenlocation. The port(left) sideof the transomis preferred, however,the starboard(right) side can be usedif necessary.Do notmount thespeed sensorbehind strakes,ribs, orthru-hull fittings. Thesewill disturbthe flowof water tothe speed sensor. Ina typicalinstallation, thespeed sensor ismounted sixto twelve inchesfrom thecenterline ofthe hull. The sensor mustalways bein thewater tofunction properly.Make certainthe chosen locationis inthe watereven athigh speed orwhen the boat ison plane.Once you determinethe properlocation, placethe sensoron thetransom. Makecertain the sensor's bottom is flush with thebottom of thehull. Mark the transomin fourplaces, twoin eachslot. Drill a 5/32"mounting hole at eachlocation. Mount the sensorto the hullwith four #10stainless steel screws (notincluded). Usea good grade ofcaulking compound toseal thescrews. Adjust the sensor soit is flushwith thebottom ofthe hull and tightenthe screws.If the baseof thetransom hasa radius,fill the gap betweenthe transomand thesensor withcaulking compound. This will helpinsure asmooth waterflow. Routethe sensor cableto the in-line connector on theX-25's power cable. Thespeed/temp sensoris nowready foruse. 3PDF compression, OCR, web-optimization with CVISION's PdfCompressor Advertising Related Manuals for Lowrance X-25 Sonar Lowrance X-20 Installation Instructions Manual (16 pages) Lowrance x-20 sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.39 MB Sonar Lowrance X-20A Installation And Operation Instructions Manual (16 pages) Lowrance x-20a sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.18 MB Sonar Lowrance X-25B Installation And Operation Manual (30 pages) Lowrance x-25b sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.37 MB Sonar Lowrance X-28 Installation And Operation Manual (30 pages) Lowrance x-28 sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.25 MB Sonar Lowrance X-28 Operation Instruction Manual (40 pages) Lowrance x-28 sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.33 MB Sonar Lowrance X-1550 Operation Manual (12 pages) Lowrance x-1550 sonar: operation manual Size: 0.38 MB Sonar Lowrance X-15 Installation And Operation Manual (14 pages) Lowrance x-15 sonar: operation manual Size: 0.52 MB Sonar Lowrance X-15A Operation Manual (12 pages) Lowrance x-15a sonar: operation manual Size: 0.33 MB Sonar Lowrance X-15B Operation Manual (12 pages) Lowrance x-15b sonar: operation manual Size: 0.4 MB Sonar Lowrance X-16 Operation Manual (16 pages) Lowrance x-16 sonar: operation manual Size: 0.48 MB Sonar Lowrance X-30 Operation Manual (20 pages) Lowrance x-30 sonar: operation manual Size: 0.59 MB Sonar Lowrance X-40 Operation Manual (18 pages) Lowrance x-40 sonar: operation manual Size: 0.48 MB Sonar Lowrance X-45 Installation And Operation Manual (30 pages) Lowrance x-45 sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.19 MB Sonar Lowrance X-55 Installation Instructions Manual (20 pages) Lowrance x-55 sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.42 MB Sonar Lowrance X-60 Installation And Operation Instructions Manual (18 pages) Lowrance x-60 sonar: operation instruction Size: 0.38 MB Related Products: Lowrance X-20 Lowrance X-20A Lowrance X-25B Lowrance X-28 Lowrance X-1550 Lowrance X-38 Lowrance X-30 Lowrance X-40 Lowrance X-60 Lowrance X-50 Lowrance X-55A Lowrance X107CDF Lowrance X96 Lowrance X47 Lowrance X71 Comments to this Manuals Your Name Enter your comment: Symbols: 0 Enter text from picture: Latest comments: robert oliver Jun 13, 2013 06:42: hi, im try to get a manual for a model lowrance x25a fish finder,can you help me?
