Two units, one transducer?

5 posts in this topic

I am looking at a getting a new boat and have run into an issue.

I have a Lowrance 522c that I plan to put on the console and run to a skimmer. I also have a x67c that I like to have in the bow and had running on a puck style 'ducer off the trolling motor on the old boat. Well that cable got cut when the guy's who stole my motor tried to steal the trolling motor. mad

Is there a way I can run both units off the same skimmer transducer? Or would it be cheaper and easyer to just get a new puck for the trolling motor?

And not that it matters now, but I sold the the bracket for my skimmer with the old boat and now I have to find a new one. Any Ideas????

While the 522 has networking capability, I am pretty certain the 67 does not. I think you are better off getting another puck.

Your way better off putting a puck on the trolling motor again. Otherwise you will only know the depth in the back of the boat. You want to know what depth your bowmounts in as well.

If need a new trolling motor to replace the one they stole, get one with US-2.

They didn't get the trolling motor, just cut the wire in an attempt to.

I decided to get a puck when I can scrap the cash together. Untill then I will just use the 522 and leave the x67 in the fish house.

    • I've had it on a few different lakes and still the same result. I'm a tungsten jig type of person, thought those showed up better on the vex?? Bigger profile jigs show up better than small. Any type of jig is a in-out flicker. Been on some finiky fish lately,  used some very small jigs and they barely show up. I'll try the battery next! Thanks guys

    • Word of caution !! Lake Superior will generate a east wind for days and the fish bite great. I think it has something to do with the air sinking out in the center and it pushes in all directions and in Duluth we get the wind out of the east.
    • This weekend I got a chance to use the 6" Nils with my Dewalt. That was crazy fast and had both of my brothers asking more questions about the whole setup. I believe the 6" cuts faster then my 8" Nils with the Tanaka motor and I thought that was fast.
    • Some possibilities in the St. Paul / SE metro area.   Joe's sporting goods in St. Paul Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale Ace Hardware in IGH   There is another bait shop off of HWY 10 in Newport, but I'm not sure if it's still there and google can't seem to find it.  I also seem to remember a gas station on Concord, south of the St. Paul Airport somewhere that has bait, but I just randomly ran into it one afternoon and I might be confused.  
    • Ya, me too.....they're extremely rare animals nowadays.. I searched (online) every hardware store, box store, Home Improvement, office supply store....zip. Only place that has them...Walmart. I suggest ya hit the used a bit and goodwill stores, they always seem to have a few. I'll keep my peepers open for ya for a good one if ya want, otherwise, get someone to order for ya off of Amazon Prime.
    • Hey everyone, had the opportunity to get out with my new jiffy 4lite propane, an Ion, and the Clam Drill plate kit (drill plate/gear box/auger with 18v Dewalt).  I was with 25 guys and I was the only one with augers. So it was the perfect time to try out all three and see what was preferred. In the end the ratings would be:   Jiffy 5/5 Ion 4/5 Clam 4/5   The propane was faster and cut the lake like a hot knife on butter. The Ion and Clam were not as fast, but were still able to cut plenty of holes without any issues. The batteries on the clam did not last as long, but if I were to buy higher amp batteries that could be solved. The Ion was slower than the other two but was consistent and did cut a lot of holes.
