Mounting Lowrance X67c on bow

8 posts in this topic

I bought the Lowrance X-67C Ice Machine this winter and now want to mount it on the bow of my Fishhawk. I ordered the trolling motor mounted transducer from LEI-Extras and am now looking for the mounting hardware for the screen. I would like the ball mount type bracket so it sits up higher and is easily adjustable and removable.

LEI-Extras does not list any of their R-A-M mounts as compatible with the X-67c.

Cabellas stuff is hard to tell if it will work or not...

Any solutions out there? I was maybe going to stop by Thorne Bros after work today too.

Jack at Action's will set you up. He's da' man,and affordable. He setup my X67C on my dash and my Pirahna on the bow-mount.

Thanks guys. I stopped at Thorne Bros and they hooked me up with exactly what I needed and even cut me a deal after I gasped at the total. I installed it last night.

Funny, I went to Sportsman's Warehouse first and walked out with nothing. They didn't have the transducer or the mount I needed and couldn't even special order either for me. Actually them and LEI said that there wasn't even a RAM ballmount made that worked with the X67c. Thorne Bros has a new customer...

One more question: Is there any problem wiring this thing to my 12V trolling motor battery up front instead of running it back to the fuseboard?

Oh, I forgot to mention this. LEI somehow "lost" my transducer order too after taking my credit card info so that's why I bought that from Thorne Bros as well. Luckily I called LEI to check the ship date or I would have been waiting all summer for the thing.

FYI- IT is the RAM mount that fits the "CUDA" that works with the Lowrance x67c, m68c as well as the Eagle's with the small base. If anyone would like to know the specifics I still have the box at home...

In regard to connecting the locator to the trolling motor... I've heard it from several sources that the trolling motor will pass interference onto the locator through the battery, which is why most people connect it to their starting battery.

Now, supposdly the new motorguide digital trolling motor (and I believe minn kota has something similar) do not interfere with the locator.

I'd reccomend connecting to the starting battery.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
