I mounted the Ice Machine x67c on the boat last Summer and was able to get arches by mounting the transducer perfectly and using manual only on the unit. Sensitivity around 90%. I sure there are others on this site who have more specific transducer mounting advice.

You will only get perfect fish arches if the fish goes through the middle of the cone. This can happen if the fish is moving or most often when you are moving over the fish. Go to Lowrance's website and look under Support/Tips & Tutorials/Sonar Tutorial/Fish Arches. It will tell all you want to know.

ok..that helps. Just wondering if i installed it right? Does the x67 still show the bottom well while moving? My boat does about 40.

There are a few factors that go into that too. Transducer placement, interferance from other wires, the motor itself, or the prop rpm or wash. I'm no expert, but you want the transducer half way below the bottom of the hull paralell with the water surface. As far away from the prop as is practicle. Keep the wires away from other wires and play with your unit's settings. Mine starts to break up a little at about 30mph (but I don't bother changing settings), but I still get bottom read out. I'm sure you could search for other threads that have dealt with this issue ad nauseum. Enjoy the weekend. grin.gif

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
