Transducer placement?

1 post in this topic

Just curious where everybody places their transducers on the transom. Particularly if u have more than one transducer.

The reason i ask, i have an Lowrance LCX-18c on the console and the transducer is mounted on the the starboard(right) of the transom. I also have a Hummingbird 300TX on the bow of the boat and the transducer is mounted on the portside(left). These transducers are spaced about 3' apart. Yet at times, the hummingbird causes interference on the lowrance when both are running. The lowrance would show depths of 400 - 600' or more when floating in 6 fow.

Not positive, but i believe both are running just standard single beam 200Khz transducers.

Any suggestions or tips for better placement for the transducers that would eliminate the interference. Or if there are configuations on the units to clear the interference.

It wouldn't be that bad if the hummingbird experienced the interference, but when the lowrance is what i primarily use, it be nice to have a clean pic while both are running.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
