SOLD ---- Eagle FishMark 480, like new

11 posts in this topic

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.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
