Transducer placement?

2 posts 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 have my console unit transducer mounted on the transom. I had similar issues with bad depth readings and it was because it got moved when going through bull rushes. I am planning on mounting it to the inside of the bilge area with epoxy. The one on my bow is attached to the trolling motor since I only use it with the trolling motor. Plus with a 20' boat I could be fishing a drop off on the bow but the transom could be on the edge. I need to see what is below me depending upon which end of the boat I am fishing.

      There is about a million skid houses for sale around the lake that you may get pretty good deals on if you don't want to go through all the work.

      10/23/16     Central MN      Cold front last week and again this morning brought new ducks into central MN. Mainly observed migrating flocks of ringnecks, wigeon, gadwalls, canvasbacks, and mallards--calendar migrators from ND and southern Canada most likely. Had a few good days of duck hunting from a boat on a couple mid-sized shallow lakes. It is that time of the year for calendar migrators. Any time you can get out over the next couple weeks during or the day after a strong west or NW wind, or the day after a cold, clear night with a light westerly wind go for it. Soon these ducks will blow through and we will be waiting for the hardy Canadian ducks that stay just south of the snow and ice line. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Brian, That certainly can not be a good thing for Vermilion! I have not seen it that bad on Big Bay yet. Cliff

      I was back up to morris yesterday oct 22 fished afternoon for about 3 hrs. in 17 to 19 feet caught about 25 walleye and sauger mix average size about 10 in. only 2 keepers. Lots of boats everyone was catching fish. I'm guessing I missed as many as I caught. Stinger saved the day!
