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.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
