using open water depth finder

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if using my Garmin depth finder from my boat would work on the ice? Has anyone tried it?

Thanks.

I'm also interested in this. I received an Eagle Fish ID that I want to use on the ice. I know I need a battery for it, but I'm trying to work a transducer mount that will stay level all the way down with these deep ice thicknesses. Its the regular transom mount transducer.

Powerstroke, I would think that attaching the transducer and cable to a wooden dowel rod or small metal rod with tape or zip ties would work. The only reason I'm thinking about it is because I haven't mounted it in my boat yet.

I mounted mine to a piece of 1/2 pvc seems to work ok. Just make sure the transducer is level.Just make sure to use NiMH batteries they last longer in the cold.

Hey guys, I use my Garmin 240 through the ice and it works great. If ya check out the setup, you will also notice the 240 has a flasher feature that you can enable, that puts a flasher bar over on the right side of the display. Works pretty well. I have mine mounted on a small wooden box that I use to hold the battery, and mount the depthfinder to the top. I have the transducer on a metal strap thats hinged in the middle, so you can just flip it up outta the way. Works really well for me, as I have not wanted to spend another $250 on a vex or marcum...

    • So did Minnesota!  24,060 troops if I remember the number right.   This is where General Lee threw in the towel on July 4th.  This 24 mile road tour is pretty amazing.  Glad I stopped.   Just a shot to the left of the High Water Mark.

    • @leech~~   My buddy Abe has a lot hair but was nice enough to try the hat at Gettysburg.  
    • And after Oakland its the Yankees! After this Mets series they must have a thing for being intimidated by NY logos on hats.   Wish we could get Buxton back but looks like he will be out for a bit now. I think he brings a lot of energy in the field and on the basepaths. Would like to see him pick it up at the plate more but he certainly brings an edge to the team that I think the other players feed off of.   Early on the team was deep and with a big division lead you could afford to shuffle out players and let the starters rest and heal. And those players were all stepping up. Now the lead is almost gone and injuries are piling up.   Lots of errors and un-earned runs have been ugly lately. We have seen Baldelli stay pretty composed so far this year. I will be curious to see what will cause him to snap or how he will handle all of this from a managing aspect.    Still a lot of games left which I am not sure if that is good or bad lol. I hope they make some moves but also dont want them to give anything up.
    • Yeah, with Oakland in town & on a roll, it could be a long weekend.
    • Does anybody have any experience with Wirelessbuy Unlimited Hotspot Mobile for internet service? I remember seeing it mentioned here a while back, but can't find the post.  I live in a rural area and my only options for internet are pretty much satellite or cell service. Two years ago, Verizon flat out lied about their home internet service to get me to sign up, my contract is finally up.  Is WirelessBuy Mobile actually unlimited Hotspot, meaning there is no data caps, no throttling, etc? This would be hooked up to my router and used as whole home internet. Maybe someone has a better recommendation?
    • Certainly looks like more  of a Saltwater feature, what with requiring an external add on device.
