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.

      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.
