Snapped Transducer

8 posts in this topic

Standard Eagle/Lowrance transducer snapped during my outing yesterday. Basically broke off right at the pin. Has anyone successfully epoxied these back together. Or is is a waste of my time?

Funny, same thing happened to me today on my bow mount. I used epoxy on it tonight. I will let you know how well it held. I have my doubts that it will hold throughout the summer.

I did the same thing last year. I had to get a new one. It was a pain because I had to fish the wire all the way to my dash.

What does it look like and which type is it ? I might have a couple transducers with no mount here.

I am looking at a HS-WSX here in front of me.

Looks like I need HST-WSU.

I'm suprised (ok, a little anyway since you run the river) that it snapped as compared to flipping up and out of the way.

Did you have the rubber washers installed and not overtigtened so it could flip up when it hit something?

Actually I have a small 14ft alum boat, and the cord runs through one of the handles in back. I think a stick got caught up in the cord loop as I was snaking around in a small creek.

I'll try to epoxy it, then buy a new one I guess if that don't work.

well, I tried some marine epoxy. Seems to be holding very good. Next test is the water.

Thanks

Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey.

      Andi and I made it out to a local river for a few hrs.... White suckers are running in force. We must have gotten 20 each.

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
