Vexilar - hockey puck transducers

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking into using my FL-18 during the summer on my trolling motor. Does anyone have a strong opinion as to which angle transducer to get? I'll be using it mostly on eyes in 10-35 feet of water. I understand the benefits of going both wide and narrow beam. I'm looking for someone who has used one or both of them and your thoughts. Thanks.

I just did this, I put on a 12 deg xducer. I wish I had put on the wider one on the troller as it is difficult if not impossible to keep your bait in the cone unless you are anchored and vertical jigging. Not to mention if your troller is running, you risk wrapping the line around the prop if you want to see your bait!

The wider angle transducer may only make this a little better.

I also just did this. I purchased the 12 degree transducer in the trolling motor kit.
The 12 degree works great, but don't plan on vertical jigging under it and seeing your bait 100% of the time, if much at all. It works well if anchored or not using the trolling motor, but like mentioned you risk getting the line in the trolling motor.
The 19 degree isn't going to make that big of difference here. I would stick with the 12, they are selling nearly 95% 12 degree units now.

I also purchased the Pro-mount, very good design and really low profile! For $13 I would add this to your selection and if you want extra bases are only $7!

Thanks for the info guys.

Hey Grabs,

I just checked out the pro-mount on their page. It looks pretty nice. Where did you pick yours up?

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
