I tried out a makeshift livescope perspective last weekend with mixed results. The image seemed to be really dependant on the down angle and water depth. I spent a lot of time pulling the transducer up and adjusting it. It seemed to me that being able to adjust that downward angle on the fly could be real useful.
This weekend I cooked up a articulated mount that uses bicycle shifting cables to move the transducer with the controls on the boat. I cut the parts out of leftover HDPE from my bait tank. I have not tried it out yet but it seems pretty sturdy. I will need to mark the controls so I can adjust it without being able to see the transducer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
