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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
