SOLD ---- Eagle FishMark 480, like new

Recommended Posts

PerchJerker

This is a great graph that's about 2 years old and has been used very little, it was mounted in my bow. It's in great shape and I never had any trouble at all with it. I'm selling it because I upgraded to a unit that's compatable with the Lowrance network.

The transducer is in great shape and has a built-in temperature sensor. All mounting hardware and instructions are included. As an extra bonus I have a Cabelas black neoprene screen cover for the graph, they sell for $10.

I'd like to get $140 for everything. 612.801.7967

Not to jump your post, but eagles are made by the same company as lowarnce. Might it possibly work with them?

Eagle units don't work on the network. I got my new unit last fall but held onto the Eagle until spring to sell it.

I just bought a boat and it came with a 480. Any tips on using the 480? I'll make sure to tell a couple of friends about yours. They may be interested.

Go to the Eagle web site and you can download a simulator of the 480. You can play with the controls and menus on your computer screen.

Do you know if the transducer would read through the hull of a kayak or not?

Tippman - If the kayak is fiberglass I assume it would read through the hull, but I don't know that for sure. That's a common application in fiberglass boats, attaching the transducer to the inside of the hull with epoxy and allowing it to shoot through the hull.

swmetroman - the tip about using the emulator is really good advice. Otherwise, you can get by with using the unit in the auto mode, just try it over known hard bottoms, known soft bottoms, weeds, etc to learn what the display is showing you. If you want to use it in manual mode, you can really dial in the bottom hardness and mark fish tight to bottom, but you need to know the basics of what you're seeing first. The best way to learn is to commit a 1-2-3 hour trip to just experimenting with the sonar and learning what it's showing you. If you have specific questions, try posting them in the Equipment or Open Water forums and you'll get many more responses.

When you say it was mounted on your bow, does that mean the transducer was on your trolling motor or is it a transom mount transducer?

It's a skimmer style transducer, it is not a puck style transducer. It can be used on a bowmount trolling motor or on the transom of the boat.

I had it mounted on my bowmount trolling motor with a $10 bracket that Lowrance sells for this purpose.

It comes with the the bracket you use to mount it to the transom. If you wanted it on the trolling motor you would need to buy the Lowrance bracket.

My kayak is made out of hard plastic called polylink 3 I believe. If it would read through the material normally I would be interested. If anyone knows chime in, otherwise when I get time I will ask around.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
