I got a Helix 7 for Christmas. Had it out a few times. Mostly short outings. Works great. But twice now I have had an issue with losing my jig. Today I was in 7 ft of water. Had gain at 10 but probably could have had it much lower. Very strong signal. Fish under me all the while(dinky perch). Then about an hour in I lose the jig. Put down a spoon and read that for a little bit then that was gone. Turned up gain and saw it a little while then at full gain, then everything gone. Still read bottom but thats it. Turned it off, turned it on. Changed cone setting. Dropped gain, lowered gain. Wiped cone.
I did change to a dakota lithium battery. Would the cold be effecting the battery? 22 degrees when I got off the ice. Battery was fully charged, Only outside two hours max.
Anybody else have this happen? My guess is the battery. It read 100% but I know that is not accurate with the lithium batteries.
