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

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
