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

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
