  1. That's very possible. We have 2 units on our rig but the 1 on the console has the transducer on the transom & the other is on the bow with the transducer on the TM. The pic of your screen looks very similar to what we get on our on our Elite 5 when I get too close with my Marcum flasher when we are ice fishing.
  2. Seen another, around the garden, this morning. Looked like he was checking out the red cones on the tomatoes.
  3. Had 1 at the feeder on the shore Monday, when we got here.
  4. I would try putting the ping speed on manual & turning it down a little. At WOT you may need to adjust it back up. Is there settings for surface clarity & or noise reduction? I assume there is, you may want to take them off the factory default settings & try adjusting them manually as well.
  5. We haven't
  6. We have the same issue at times with a '02 Crestliner FH & '02 115 Yamaha. Other times it will work perfectly for extended periods of time
  7. I might try playing with the sensitivity, ping speed, & chart speed settings. Is everything set on Auto? How fast were you moving. If that doesn't help I might give Lowrance FAQ's or where you checked for transducer placement.a look. Nothing in the manual? Any new software updates?
  8. Our lilacs, here at the lake, have just started to bud out.
  9. Is there a windshield wipers union in Mn ?
  10. Yours look a lot better than any of them I rode in.
  11. Remember riding in some of those. They could really go & with that steering were kind of dangerous Especially towards the end of the round when the driver had a couple more than you thought.
  12. Try a search for "Sausage Heaven Outdoors". A lot of good info there.
  13. You might want to look into a transducer board too. They can save you from drilling more holes in your transom if you want to move it or need to replace you unit. I've heard of people using cutting boards to make their own instead of buying them as long as they are thick enough.
  14. The owners manual on the last 1 we mounted said to put it on either side, starboard for us, depending on which way the prop turned. I think the distance from prop & how high can vary with the different units & different hull designs. Ideally trying to keep it away from as much cavitation as possible in order to get optimum performance. What brand of unit do you have? I would try to contact 1 of their techs to see what they recommend. Might even try the boat manufacturer or some place where you do the majority of your business for buying fishing equiptment that might sell your unit.
  15. Nice work!
