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.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
