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.

      How thick was the ice?   ....   can an ATV go out on the lake?

      I'm gonna let you in on a secret that I discovered many years ago on a lake that had low numbers of very large Crappies. We all know that sunset is a time when Crappies become hungry and active. They seem to appear out of nowhere and after a half hour flurry of action, they disappear just as quickly. Often when fishing this lake I would get a bite or two if I was lucky. One night a friend and I were set up in my usual spot and right on time, we started catching fish. We ended up catching over a dozen 13.5"-15.75" Crappies that evening. About halfway through the action, as we realized we were doing much better than I ever had on that lake, my friend commented on the full moon. It was just peeking above the trees, and the beautiful sunset was on the opposite horizon. Not realizing what provoked that prolonged action, we both were eager to go back 4 days later. I got 1 fish, he had 1 bite, as was typical for the lake. Puzzled, we were talking about our last trip, and we came to the conclusion that the sunset and moonrise combo was the cause of the outstanding action. People talk about the full moon creating better activity "because the fish can see better". I am VERY convinced that is NOT the reason.  Musky fisherman know about the power that the moon has. With moon rise, moon set etc. being times when a big fish is more likely to strike.  Other fish like huge Crappies feel the power as well. When the moon is full, moon rise and sunset occur at about the same time. The combination of both high percentage times at once creates a MAGICAL window that occurs once per month.  Since then I have capitalized on this monthly occurrence many many times, for walleye, eelpout and musky as well as the crappies. It is way more than just a coincidence it is MAGIC!! Sometimes the days before and after the full moon are also excellent, occasionally 1 is even better than the full moon night. But any time you are planning a trip for a challenging species or difficult location try to be there at that magical period and you will improve your odds of success.  It doesn't matter if its cloudy and the moon is not visible the magic is still there. Hopefully you can unlock the potential of a lake with this little tip.    Remember that C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) is key to catching bigger fish as well as the key to the future of fishing.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...
    • Wanderer
      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy
      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!
    • pikeandchester
      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.
