Hi all. I’m sure it’s been talked about on here, but I have my LS transducer mounted on a pole with the 8 degree offset bracket. Do you recommend that I get a 0 degree or is it not a big deal? I struggle a little bit with seeing my jig when casting, but that could be the settings. Thanks for any input!

0 degree isn't a big deal when mounted to a stand-a-lone pole.

Thanks. I wasn’t sure if it was adversely affecting the ability to get a good view.

Using braid line is critical .

Really? That’s an interesting idea. I’ll give it a shot. Thanks!

A lot of crappie guru's will tie on mono leader due to the braid strength. Mono will break where the braid will pull up the pile.

Gborg mentioned that too. I never knew that. My jig rod has 4 lbs. mono so that might be the issue. I have braid on a few other rods that I’m going to try. Thanks for the reply.

I don't worry about seeing my line, just my jig
