A TROLLING MOTOR TRANSDUCER TIP

A TROLLING MOTOR TRANSDUCER TIP

A front mounted fish-finder can be the key to your success when fishing for bass. Learn to read the subtle changes in bottom, structure and cover and you will be amazed at the amount of detail a bow unit is capable of providing.

Remember for maximum performance, it is important that the transducer for the front unit be positioned on the foot of the trolling motor. Many anglers, as well as marine dealers, use the plastic wire ties to secure a transducer cord to the trolling motor shaft. This can be a costly mistake since fishing line can become snagged on the ties when fighting a fish. Instead, I recommend using electrical tape. This eliminates line snagging completely and it also allows quick cord replacement if necessary.
