Humminbird 787 c2i - Ice Transducer

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone own and use the Humminbird 787 c2i for ice fishing. I bought this unit last spring and use it as a portable. Worked great in the open water and now I want to use it on the ice. Question is, if you are using it on the ice did you buy an ice transducer for it or did you rig up a suction cup transducer? Humminbird's HSOforum does not list an ice transducer for this unit, but their customer service indicated the XI 9 20 ice transducer will work with the unit. Curious if anyone has experience with the 787 c2i on the ice and what ducer you are using.

thanks.

A Good question?

I think the new ice pack ducer will work, but only in the single 200KHZ beam mode....just a guess?

Call the Humm-B teck's and quiz them, and please report back what they say.

According to Humminbird customer service (I just called them) the the XI-9-20 ice transducer is dual beam and will work with the 787 c2i.

I am ordering one today. If it doesn't seem to work I will let you know.

I have the xi 9 20 transducer that i use with my 383c. I like it a lot better than my old setup, which was the puck transducer mounted to a pvc "T". The ice tranduce is pretty much self leveling, so all i have to do is drop it down the hole.

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
