mounting my Marcum 'ducer to the front side of my boat??

2 posts in this topic

I have a Crestliner Fishhawk 1750 and have been using my marcum flasher. I have recently added an eagle graph w/ GPS and want to move the Marcum up front. Is there a good way of moving my existing ducer up to the front of the boat. I have heard of people putting them on the trolling motor but I think they use a different "puck" style transducer and I have the rectangular rather large type transducer. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. thanks

Yes, Marcum does have a puck transducer designed for mounting on a trolling motor. You can review that installation here

Puck Transducer Install

If you don't have the extra cash, I'd try mounting the high speed transducer similar to the way the puck style is mounted. Minus the bracket, hold the transducer up to the bottom of your trolling motor and think about how you could "attach" it. Using just zip ties would probably work.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
