  1. I get what you’re saying now. Sorry for the confusion.
  2. Meaning his wheel doesn’t clear the bottom of the transom enough? I considered that, but from the pic it seems to clear to me. Maybe my eyes aren’t good enough though. If it’s not clearing the bottom of the transom that would impact the wheel from spinning, as the area behind the transom will be more like dead water.
  3. It looks fine to me. This is how mine is mounted. Clearances look fine. There’s nothing infront of the transducer that would interfere, correct? Honestly seems like you may just have gotten a defective transducer from them. I recommend you email them tomorrow, with the pics and follow up with a call. Being that you are getting temp I would assume interference with your FF isn’t the issue. Maybe it could be a bit lower, but I would seek input directly from the company.
  4. Okay, so you have run it in the water on the boat and it still doesn’t read. It isn’t uncommon after some time for the wheel on the transducer to not work. I’ve seen it. Like the other member just asked, show us where it is mounted. Luckily, your probe will still read speed so long as that isn’t defective or damaged, and that is the important speed after all. Post a pic of the mounting location. It does sound like you either have a bad connection possibly or a defective transducer. The good news is that Fishhawk customer service is pretty good, so fear not.
  5. I just shot drink out of my nose. Lmao.
  6. Man, sounds like that crew cleaned up. Congratulations.
  7. If you spin the wheel in a bucket of water it will not work. It refreshes every 45 seconds if I recall correctly. Did you actually run it or only test the wheel out of the water? If only out of the water (or in a bucket) throw it in and it will function. If not, check your connections. If that doesn’t help, contact Fishhawk and they’ll likely send a new transducer. Again, spinning the wheel out of water will produce 0.0 (Even in a bucket of water) but will read temp.

    I saw this boat last weekend I believe. Looked great from the water.
  9. Wow, that’s terrible. Very sorry to hear it. I hope the fish Gods give you some luck.
  10. He has too much money in stickers in the cabin to sell it.
  11. Huh? I put “throne” in parenthesis because I was quoting what you had said, just like “jackazz”. My point was that the drama we see on the screen is scripted, so to call another person on there an arse is “taking the bait” as I referred to it. I bet Tyler acts a bit differently in real life. Sorry that my post struck a nerve with you. That was not the intention. I’m not sure where the whole “this new generation” rant comes in to play. I suppose you’re assuming the 88 in my username means I was born in 1988 along with other assumptions. I suppose it doesn’t matter regardless. Good luck fishing, Pap.
  12. Exactly, the persona Tyler and the others play doesn’t necessarily reflect who they are in real life. It’s definitely dramatized.
  13. But go ahead and watch the bachelor if you wish hehe
  14. I watch it as well. My point was he “took the bait” when it comes to saying Tyler is a crappy captain... he was calling him a “jackazz” and said he would have “throne”(assumed he meant thrown) him off of his own boat.
  15. You swallowed the bait. It’s a scripted reality show.
  16. Send the ones that don’t work to a painter and have them reproduce?
  17. Temp at the probe or on the transducer? Can always get another probe. At least the x4 probe is cheaper than the x4d.
  18. Are you trolling the tides or just when things are slow? I only troll, can’t be bothered with bait when lures are so easy to keep alive.
  19. It’s going to come to an end quickly here. Strange year, but every season is a blessing.
  20. If you’re going to be fishing out of the Kingston area PM me. I’m happy to assist and share info.
  21. Blood worms are effective if you drift them through fish. Anchoring and bottom fishing them yields basically any species stealing your $1.25 worm. If you’re going to anchor fish live herring. Use a circle hook right through the nose, or use a tiny zip tie through the nose and put your hook through the zip tie. Clip the dorsal or tail fins of bait. I strictly troll as to avoid the catching/buying/keeping the bait alive issue. Rapala F18’s trolled 30’ behind the ball just above the fish is my game. Downriggers and lead core are effective. 20 lb mono main line, 4’ 20# flouro leader. Troll at 2.6-3.0 at the probe. Most importantly, let the 40”+ fish go even though they’re legal and keep the 18-28” legal fish (i keep 22-28”) for table fare. They eat better and it’s for the good of the fishery. Pics and measurements of the big ones, and if you want a mount go replica.
  22. This is where I launch. Worth the money since two can launch at a time and plenty of parking. Sleightsburg is cramped at best, but free. Both launches are treated like they’re fishing piers so you always have some interesting people that at times get in the way. Most are fine.
  23. I imagine it will be good bu Wednesday.
