transducer???

9 posts in this topic

Anyone ever break the trandsucer of their boat in rough water??? I did yesterday on Mille Lacs and it wasn't even that rough. Am I the only one this has happened to?

You had to have hit something, or the plastic is old and brittle. I was in 5ft whitecaps on Superior and mine is still in great shape.

I agree with davesfriend, you must have hit something. Or, that was some really rough water grin

I had mine break on me once for no reason. A floating log or something could have taken it out. But dont think I hit anything since I was going real slow on a shallow lake on a calm day that I had never been on. I epoxied mine back together and it held for a few trips before my boat was totalled.

I agree with everyone I think something must have been floating in the water. When we got to the spot my depthfinder did not work my brother looked there was nothing but a wire tail and a bracket. Really odd I thought.

I broke off a transducer one time on what looked like a whippy little willow branch floating in the water, it wasn't very big at all and I was right on top of it before I ever saw it.

This doesn't count but I took one out when I launched the boat too shallow and it sheared off on the concrete ties on the landing. It took me awhile to figure out why I wasn't getting a signal when I got out on the water. The worst part is that there were witnesses. blush

Defective casting maybe, I've never broken a Transducer, lots of props and skegs but no transducer. blush

I always keep mine loose enough to flip up, Lowrance and Eagle. grin

It is a three year old hummingbird. I cant believe that the casting was old maybe defective. Either way this week I will have to make a trip and get a new transducer.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
