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

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
