Fish hawk placement?


Recommended Posts

Got to fish the new boat once and had issues with x4d reading depth and speed at ball. In shallower water 50ft or less. Worked once when i was 80ft dn. The marina i picked the boat up at mounted transducer dead middle of transom. My riggers are on the corners. Im 13 ft wide so maybe to far away?? I tested everything on land by the wet finger trick ant it read temp. Im still undecided on running 4 riggers on corners or just 3 and putting 1 in the middle. Ir just moving the transducer.

There should be no problem in the middle where it's mounted now, but it does appear that the surface is pointing straight down. Loosen the 4 screws and tilt it aft as far as you can or about 20*s & it should cure your problem. With it pointing straight down as it is the balls at depth & trolling speed are out of the cone angle.
