I am purchasing livescope and don’t have spotlock. Where should I mount the transducer? TM or pole mount? Seen pros and cons for both? I fish timber and brush piles mainly.

You will get a lot of different situational opinions on this one. With no spot lock fishing timber if you don’t mind roping to a tree to hold boat just put it on TM shaft, same with calm water on the TM shaft is what I feel is better. (Opinion)

However if you ever do get spot lock the decision gets much harder , in wind with spot lock on it’s own pole or turret is more often preferred.


I personally finally gave up on the battle between tm shaft or turret and have both in boat and switch between depending on conditions.

You will want spot lock eventually.
I want to control where the livescope is pointed. for me , this means a separate pole mount,

I use the one from " fishing specialties "
good luck

I use a Seelite2 pole mount due to having a spot lock trolling motor. Sometime I want to ease down a bank and scan al ost perpendiculat to the trolling moter heading. Don't claim to be an expert as I'm just getting started and have much to learn.
