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.

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      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.
