Puck Transducer Question

6 posts in this topic

I just recently purchased a Zercom RTS and it comes standard with a puck transducer. Can the puck transducer be used for ice fishing or do I have to buy the iceducer from Humminbird for $90.00? If I have the iceducer is a necessity, do any of you have any leads on a better price? Thanks in advance.

You can use the puck, you just have to make sure that it is straight.

Yep make sure its level. Get a bubble level and glue it to the top of the ducer.

I used a Zercom Clearwater Pro for 2 yrs before I bought my FL-8. It worked great for ice fishing. All I did was get a Genz Blue box and tape my transducer to the adjustable arm on the box, then glued the bubble level on top. Any time the bubble was out of adjustment I moved the arm to get it centered again. Worked great, and the target seperation was excellent! Only problem was the puck on that model was a little large and I always had to move it when even bringing a small sunnie through the hole. What I did to remedy this is drill another hole close to the one I was fishing through and put the locator in that one. I could still see my jig fine and didn't always have to readjust. Some food for thought. Good luck with your new locator it should work fine with the standard puck.

Luckyfish,

Thanks for your tips, I am going to mount the RTS on a new Genz Box.

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
