Rig Elite-4X for ice?
« on: Mar 10, 2017, 01:17 PM »
Guys - have a Lowrance Elite-5 in an ice pack that I really like using, IF one of the kids isn't using it.  I also have an Elite-4X that has just the transom mount transducer.  In an effort to save some money, does anyone have a slick idea for rigging this for ice fishing in the winter?

I'm sure there's enough adjustments to suit your need.  http://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php?topic=346276.0

Thanks for the link.  Actually looking to go the other way - from boat to ice.  Wondering what people have done to maybe package the unit and battery without the ice pack.

You can still use that Scotty transducer mount for your transom mount transducer.  Just screw or bolt the top unit to the F/F carrier.
