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...
