Purchased 2 new humminbird  finders. Helix 7 G2N and a Helix 12 G2N.  Waiting on a new trolling motor. I want the new Ultrex 80 24volt but cant see the money they want for it now.  Will keep checking on prices hopefully I can get one by spring. If anyone should happen to see any deals keep me in mind.

No, I didn't.  Buy the time I bought it, the ice was already gone.  No biggie.  I currently have the suction cup mounted onto the transducer arm, so I'm planning on just sticking that to the side and keeping the unit between my knees for now.

I should be able to order an extra bracket for the mount that came with the unit, and mount that bracket to my kayak.  Then I just need to figure out where to keep the battery (it's a big SLA 12VDC deer-feeder-type).  Probably going to have to extend the battery leads if I do that as well.  Ideally, I want to mount the transducer inside the hull of my yak and shoot through the hull, which would also necessitate my purchasing the ice 'ducer for ice-fishing use.  That may have to wait until next year.  I really don't like anything attached to the exterior of yak below the waterline; as I tend to plow some some weeds and don't want to get hung up.  That said, it's a suction cup mount, I can remove that if needed.

It lives!

20180317-looks like a good unit Allen … perfect size for the kayak. You will really appreciate those waypoints for the record.  

Comment by Slip Sinker on March 17, 2018 at 9:57am

20180317-what I really like about the side scan imaging is the ability to cover larger areas of BOW quicker.  

Comment by Allen Morgan on March 17, 2018 at 4:48am

I got a Garmin Striker 4, the "Portable" version.  Looks like an ice-fishing flasher, complete with plastic frame and a zippered bag to go over it, plus the battery and charger, all for about $200.  It's got CHIRP, GPS, and a Flasher mode, although I'll probably stick to the graph display.  Even has down-scan, which I might end up using more than the graph.  Time will tell.

My old sonar died on me last year, and I figured if I'm going to buy a new sonar for my yak, I might as well get something I can use for both yak-fishing and ice-fishing.  The really nice thing is I can paddle around in my yak, marking way-points for the launch site, weeds, drop-offs, etc., and still be able to use those in the next hard-water season.

I just researched it and it sure looks handy.

Comment by Bruce Tomaselli on March 17, 2018 at 4:33am

Not familiar with "Side" imaging. I'll have to look for some info. I don't have a boat but I have access to a few.

Comment by Slip Sinker on March 16, 2018 at 10:34pm

20180317-I cant believe it’s been almost 5 years with this unit Dick… what a great learning experience through this time with this model! So many trophy fish I can account and attribute with the use of this unit… just amazing! Time to move up with CHIRP and Side Imaging
