Transducer position ?


ND Jig Head

Question

I have a Lowrance X91 on a Lund 1700 Fisherman. The transducer is mounted about 18 inches right of center keel on the transom and is angled slightly forward. At about half throttle I loose the bottom on the screen. At full throttle I get a small rooster tail of water coming from the transducer. I have adjusted the trasducer as the Lowrance owners manual describes. Any suggestions?

Thanks

The way I typically mount lowrance transducers is to put the line that runs along the transducer (that sort of divides the transducer in half top to bottom) lined up with the bottom of the hull.. that way your transudcer is always in the water...

You may see spray from the transducer this way, but it should work...

With a V-hull 18" off of center should be plenty, in fact if you go too far the ducer will raise out of the water when on plan but you said its shooting a tail so you should be fine. Check that you don't have any ribs or rivets in fount of the ducer.

I think in your case, tipping the front of the ducer in/down is the problem by creating and air pocket. Use a straight edge along the hull and line the ducer parallel with but a 1/4" below that straight edge. If you have to tip it at all you would tip the back of the ducer down a frog hair while keeping the front of the ducer just below the hull.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
