Fishfinder mounting and accessories
Once you have decided which Fishfinder you want to fit to your kayak, there are a few other things you are going to need. Always check what you get with the particular model fishfinder you are buying, but generally they will include a base for the unit, a transducer and battery cables. Other essentials you will need are; a battery, somewhere to store your battery such as a box or dry bag, a seal to route battery and transducer cables through the boat and a system to mount your transducer.
We have listed some of the popular options below but if you would like any advice as to which would work best with your kayak, please call us on 01202 625256 or use the contact us form.
Transducer Mounting Options
There are several ways to mount a Fishfinder Transducer to your kayak. One of the simplest and most popular ways is to glue the transducer inside the boat (to access the inside of your boat you will need a hatch), the transducer can then sound through the plastic of the boat. Alternatively the Transducer can be mounted externally and the Lowrance Scupper mount is a convenient and easy way to do this without drilling any extra holes.
Battery & Cable Routing
All the fishfinders we supply are designed to run from a 12v Battery- the 7ah batteries that we supply are enough to power a fish finder for a days fishing. You will need to secure the battery inside the kayak and stop it getting wet, some people use box's or tubs but one of the quickest and easiest ways to do this is with a dry bag- this can be clipped inside the kayak and the cables routed out through the mouth of the bag before closing. A deck seal offers a way to route cables through the boat whilst still keeping it watertight and without having to remove any of the cable connectors.
