Default New Rig Question

Bought me a new rig. Looking to do a lil bit of everything with it from flats fishing, to duck hunting. I'm looking for some advise as to mounting transducer for my graphs. Thought about going with one of the adhesive on plates to screw it to and just taking it off when I plan to just hunt. I know prodigy offers a transducer mod that is ideal, but not really wanting to carry my boat up there just to get it added on. What have some you guys done in this situation?

I've seen some mud boats with a ram mount kayak looking transducer mount. Tell us about you're boat, it looks good.

Get the adjustable transducer mount from Chad. Just make sure you remember to adjust it UP when going through mud and junk............ ask me how I know.........

Any shop that can weld aluminum should be able to throw you an adjustable transducer bracket on there lickity split. I made mine from scrap square tube.

fyi, prodigy now has one that can be added by yourself without welding. I just added one to my boat. 4 bolts with some sealant and it works like a dream.

If you end up getting one from chad cut the plat off the top and give your self enough cable to pull the entire unit out of the bottom and you can zip tie it to the motor mount or turn it upside down during duck season so you don't break it off.
