2 sonors in boat ?

4 posts in this topic

I have an 18 foot boat with a bow mounted trolling motor with universal sonor. I am wondering if I would get interference between 2 sonors running at the same time; 1 on bow and other with transducer on transom. I was told water depth and cone shape matters, but for the most part are they going to be far apart enough not to interfere with each other?? (i rarely fish over 30fow). Any help appreciated.

if you rarely fish over 30 foot you should be fine.. maybe over some rocky situations you may get some.. .but usually not.

I have 2 on mine and an 18 foot boat.. no real problems so far until fishing deep water 30+ feet. Then its just a matter of turning one off.

I have two in a 16.5' boat and have yet to have a problem. One is a Humminbird and the other an Eagle. The Eagle is connected to my MinnKota with universal sonar. The Humminbird's transducer is on the back of the boat.

Most of my fishing seems to match your scenario. It is typically in less than 30-40' of water.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
