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.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
