Snuck out this morning to see if I could catch a few bedders...lost the momma at the boat but I did catch the buck after missing him a couple times....

Then...tragedy struck...underwater tree took my transducer smooth off. It’s a Lowrance so of course it’s made of plastic and I’m willing to bet it won’t have a warranty and I’m going to have to pay for a new transducer. If anyone has been down this road with Lowrance, fill me in on what I can expect.

Thanks guys and gals....

Not sure about dealing with Lowrance, but I currently run the spring back bracket which has been a lifesaver for my ducer when hitting stumps, haven't broken one yet.

Also run this too.

Transducer Shield and Saver is my recommendation as well. When I first started reading I thought you had lost your lower unit, now that would be tragic. Nice fish BTW...

No, you hitting a stump is not covered under warranty by any electronics companies. Go to Bass Pro and buy another one. Use the old transducer wire to pull the new one through. Price you pay for having a clean picture running the transducer externally.



I hate photobucket.

Mount the next one to your jackplate and use the transducer saver you wont break it again.

I thought you busted your lower unit also. That's a tragedy, a busted transducer is an inconvenience.

I’ve got a 3 in 1 with the bracket....shoot me an offer. It was only used a short while before I went to the AI transducer.


If it will even work for you.

Yep, if the wire is still connected then buy the transducer saver mounts and just re-mount it. Jack plate mount is preferable if you have one.


Thats my money fish

It’s not that it is plastic transducer. It is that you trashed your transducer.

It’s 100% because it’s plastic....and implying that I was irresponsible and careless with my equipment because a branch clipped the bottom corner of my boat while I was idling shows how “trash” your perspective is.
