My transducer is pole mounted so adjusting the depth is easy. In relatively stump free water I put mine down far enough that I can scan 360 below the boat without the boat's hull blocking the view. In places like conway I go just far enough that I can see close to 180 towards the front of the boat.
Gun answered your questionHow far below the surface should the transducer be for live scope?
Depends on how one chooses to fish I guess? ITo me having it mounted on tm is to be adjusting all the time. During wind or current I can keep locked onto target far easier with a pole mount while I make necessary course adjustments with the trolling motor.
Well said exactly..I want my hands ready to set the hook...If I m reaching to adjust something I am missing an opportunity at catching a fish.. Especially on hard days when they aren't biting..Depends on how one chooses to fish I guess? I
Fish clear water lakes and cast to them. I put my Ultrex on spot lock about 40’ down wind of them. I know where they are at with livescope panning back and forth. I count my bait down to the depth they are and start reeling. That being said I’m not wanting to see each individual fish “eat it” on the screen, I’m just waiting on the thump. But I have also targeted individual fish with a long pole in open water. This being done with it on the TM also.
