Down Imaging on bow of boat



I have a Lund 1675 and looking to add a DI sonar on the front of the boat. I am curious on how you do this? I run a PD80 trolling motor. My question is where and how do you mount the transducer.

Any help on how or what units people are using would greatly be appreciated!

The best way to run DI off your bow would be to mount the DI transducer directly to your trolling motor. HB makes a trolling motor mount transducer for this, lowrance has an adapter to mount their transducer to, and there are after-market mounts that will work as well.

Another option is to mount the transducer on your transom, although if you're fishing from the bow you'll be a boat-length away from your transducer.

On my own boat I have a structuresan transducer on the transom and have it networked into an HDS unit on my bow. I use downscan a lot in the bow even though the transducer and I are on opposite ends of the boat. If I want to know what's directly under the bow I use the HDS on conventional sonar and use the US2 transducer in my troling motor. At times I run it on split screen - conventional sonar and downscan - and get the best of both worlds.

Hope that helps!
