SOLD ---- Eagle FishMark 480, like new

Recommended Posts

PerchJerker

This is a great graph that's about 2 years old and has been used very little, it was mounted in my bow. It's in great shape and I never had any trouble at all with it. I'm selling it because I upgraded to a unit that's compatable with the Lowrance network.

The transducer is in great shape and has a built-in temperature sensor. All mounting hardware and instructions are included. As an extra bonus I have a Cabelas black neoprene screen cover for the graph, they sell for $10.

I'd like to get $140 for everything. 612.801.7967

Not to jump your post, but eagles are made by the same company as lowarnce. Might it possibly work with them?

Eagle units don't work on the network. I got my new unit last fall but held onto the Eagle until spring to sell it.

I just bought a boat and it came with a 480. Any tips on using the 480? I'll make sure to tell a couple of friends about yours. They may be interested.

Go to the Eagle web site and you can download a simulator of the 480. You can play with the controls and menus on your computer screen.

Do you know if the transducer would read through the hull of a kayak or not?

Tippman - If the kayak is fiberglass I assume it would read through the hull, but I don't know that for sure. That's a common application in fiberglass boats, attaching the transducer to the inside of the hull with epoxy and allowing it to shoot through the hull.

swmetroman - the tip about using the emulator is really good advice. Otherwise, you can get by with using the unit in the auto mode, just try it over known hard bottoms, known soft bottoms, weeds, etc to learn what the display is showing you. If you want to use it in manual mode, you can really dial in the bottom hardness and mark fish tight to bottom, but you need to know the basics of what you're seeing first. The best way to learn is to commit a 1-2-3 hour trip to just experimenting with the sonar and learning what it's showing you. If you have specific questions, try posting them in the Equipment or Open Water forums and you'll get many more responses.

When you say it was mounted on your bow, does that mean the transducer was on your trolling motor or is it a transom mount transducer?

It's a skimmer style transducer, it is not a puck style transducer. It can be used on a bowmount trolling motor or on the transom of the boat.

I had it mounted on my bowmount trolling motor with a $10 bracket that Lowrance sells for this purpose.

It comes with the the bracket you use to mount it to the transom. If you wanted it on the trolling motor you would need to buy the Lowrance bracket.

My kayak is made out of hard plastic called polylink 3 I believe. If it would read through the material normally I would be interested. If anyone knows chime in, otherwise when I get time I will ask around.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
