Transducer Cable Question

5 posts in this topic

While installing my transducer I noticed a large nick in the cable right by transducer. It was probably rubbing all last year and I didn't notice it when I removed it. I assume that it's still working as it was when I pulled it off. What's the best way to protect the cable? I can see the insulated wire inside. Some kind of silicone, tape, or something else? Shrink tubing won't fit over the transducer. Any idea's?

I'd try some neoprene dip or liquid electric tape followed by some tight wraps of electrical tape. That way it's an adhesive type of bond instead of just a wrap of tape.

Ditto marine man's advice.

Sounds like a good start. You want to make the seal watertight as possible to avoid contamination.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
