I second the motion on the RAM mount. I have one in the boat, and the wheeler for my H2OC. The nice thing about the RAM mounts, is once you have the cradle and arm, you just need to buy the base for whatever, or wherever you want to mount it. I got my ATV mount at Gander, and the boat mount at Reeds.

Spendy, but rock-solid. They're done right.

Make sure you get the big suction cup. I have heard that the smaller one doesn't hold worth beans.

They are generally the same price no matter where you buy them. I happened to get my bout mount at thorne brothers as well. The major reason is they had it in stock!!! The big box places, at least in my area, rarely have any of this stuff on the shelf.

Click on my sponsor link below and then Click on the Thorne Brothers link. You should be able to find what you are looking for.

Yeah, I wouldn't personally trust suction cup mounts for every situation. When I termed RAM as 'rock-solid,' I was speaking of their mounts in general. I don't own the suction cup style, but lots of folks swear by 'em in situations when the vibration isn't severe.

My suction cup mount is similar to Pier's and mounted in the same place. Mine has a lever that twists to secure the suction cup to the glass. It is very solid. I think it cost me about $40. I'll try to get a picture of it later today.

I've looked at Cabelas and 1 Gander and no luck so far. I'll have to make the trip to Thorne Bros!

I got the permanent mounts for the boat - one for the console and one for up front. They even sell a magnifying glass the size of the H2O screen that mounts between the arm and the unit holder and has a goose-neck so you can move it in front of the unit when you want it and away when you don't.

Got mine at Gander in MG

Okay, here's what mine looks like. Like I said, it is pretty solid, and I bought it online. There are tons of possibilities out there as far as mounts go.

Ryan, where did you get yours? (I like the twist lever thing).

And do you guys have a problem with the power cord reaching your power source?

Hayward,

I ordered it online. Send me an e-mail (address in my profile) and I will get you the info. I'm sure I shoudn't post the link here.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?! 
    • leech~~
      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
