Transducer mount

Recommended Posts

HI! folkes  I am looking for a portable transducer mount .So I can use my lowrance Elite 9 ti     0n other boats that I go out on . I like the Minn Kota one but can't find one  ( Minn Kota Transducer  JCH 2032031 )   Any Ideas what store carries it .

THANKS.

I know I can order online but I was hoping to buy it locally.   MY transducer is very large and it costs $ 300.00 bucks . SO I need something stronger than normal.

pretty sure i have seen one at bass pro man, either that or id order one online. Just be wary that I wouldnt suggest running one fast down the lake. my 15hp tinner going 20 would knock it off regularly if i hit a wave etc. better to just toss it back in the boat when not stationary or going slow.

Is this for on a trolling motor or on the back of a boat

I mounted mine on a 1x2 piece of pine and use a C-clamp. It worked on tillers/tinnys and on a bigger ski/fish boat.

Yeah the cheap suction ones don’t stay on but if you buy a suction cup for glass and modd it. They work well

I've been using a transducer mount (Standard/Regular model) that I purchased at Cabela's years ago - works like a charm. See Cabela's item IK-010095

I have one I could sell you for cheap. I forget the brand, but it works great. I can get a  photo later on if you Pm me your cell number. I am in the peterborough area.  Its a clamp on set up that will work for any boat. Its made by a rod holder company, but the name escapes me at the moment.

X2. I never found a suction cup that would stay on anything. I was going to mount it on a piece of wood then clamp it on the transom but never did.

saw these guys at a fishing show a couple years ago. Picked up one of their complete set ups for the canoe and when I go to lodges etc. Works awesome.  allows you to mount the screen anywhere in the boat.

not the cheapest solution out there, but if you do this often, it s worth it. Just make sure you explain to the folks at security at the airport that its a fishfinder before you put it through xray   :whistling::whistling:

The one I have is a tite lok transducer mount like this one I think. I forgot to dig it out last night.  It might be a little different than the one in the link, but it works, and the price is right.

Best way to do it. Took this on fly ins or anytime we needed a transducer on a cached boat. Works like a charm. 

Screw in cable tie saddles down the piece of wood and use cable ties to manage the transducer cable.

I've had no issues with the suction cup mounts on multiple fly-ins.  Just gotta make sure it's positioned correctly.

I have the totalscan transducer on my boat.  There is no way that thing will stay put on a suction cup mount.  You will have to take Sinker up on his offer, or make something solid out of wood and C clamps as suggested.  The suction cup works great for my portable bird transducer, but it's tiny in comparison to the total scan!
