Transducer angle

Recommended Posts

 From the looks of these arches I am wondering if my transducer is angled forward a little to much. I would have thought they should be more of an inverted V shape.

Yes, looks like the angle to the back of the boat is seeing the fish a little earlier so showing a deeper head, and then as the fish gets closer it looses it sooner, and you aren't getting that nice deep return fish arc.  Definitely it makes sense.  What is your angle?

 Not sure what the angle is. I'll have to take a look and try to angle it back a bit.

use a level on your rail when you are on the water   when you put the boat on the trailer adjust the trailer so the boat is at the same attitude then set you transducer level. this should give you the proper setting

Thanks dbitting, I have always taken a strait edge along the bottom of the boat and set parallel, I see yor way is better.
