2 Transducers on back of boat?

3 posts in this topic

Could anyone tell me if I would get alot of interference running 2 sonars at the same time with both transducers on the back of the boat? I bought a Lowrance X100C and was in the process of mounting it and started to wonder if I could leave my old Humminbird transducer where it is and move the sonar unit itself up towards the front of the boat for my wife to watch and use. Transducers would be approx. 4 feet apart from each other. I'm worried that with both running at the same time, there could be too much interference? Has anybody tried this? Thanks!

Its possible to run more then one ducer off the back of your boat. I do it and they get along fine. I don't have any experience with your combination of sounders so I can't say how they'll do together. Give it a try, if your old Bird whacks out its no biggy.

Thanks for the reply...I decided to give it a try and left the old Humminbird transducer where it is...Like you said, nothing to lose...Can take it off later if there is too much interference...Hope to get out today if it's not too windy to give it a try...Thanks again...

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
