Nice picture. That will do it for sure. I had a long stick and a clamp and it wasn't near that good.

You can buy an ice transducer for most units , hey have a shorter cord and bottom weight and a diffrent cone pattern

It just seems logical to spend 6 cents per year and come out so far on the plus side financially to enable on ice snacks to include spendy items for the entire season.   YUM !   

Thank you, OP (with the Swahili screen name) .    ;)2

Ice transducers are sort of new these days, that's all you could get was a skimmer not too long ago..

That idea would have saved me a lot of time in the past..

Great idea, thanks for sharing the picture..

Yup, that'll work as long as your cord is still somewhat soft in the cold. Whenever I tried it, the cord was so stiff when cold that the ducer never actually hung level. Lowrances are TERRIBLE about that.

The ice ducer is different on my marcum lx5. I bought the high speed transducer for use on my boat. It attached to my bow mount trolling motor and it will not show my jig under it like the ice ducer does. Even flat calm water and fishing it directly under the transducer. It must be a different cone angle or something different about it. Besides the pita removing it back and forth from the boat, I would recommend just buying the ice ducer.

I definitely over thought the project years ago when using a FF on the ice. I had sticks, floats, and wraps of solder!!

My ice ducer will shoot through the ice without drilling. Not sure if a skimmer will do that

Try that on 7" of white ice and get back to us with the results.     ;)2

Worked great on 3 inches of white ice with 9 inches of clear yesterday . i throw it down to check depths sometimes when looking for a new spot but it's in a hole when I fish

Ha ha yeah. On a slushy day you can just drop the ducer on the ice and it looks the same as if it's ina hole. I'll have to check it on thicker ice and see why happens

I found an inch of snow kills it.   If it was too cold to snow and only make crystal ice, sweet.    :thumbsup:

Auger your fishing hole, then another shallow one next to it. fill the shallow one up with water and set the ducer in it. Works pretty good most of the time.

This is how I set up my transducer. I took the bracket that attaches to the boat and put a bolt through it and then used a wingnut to hold it on. The bolt was heavy enough to counterweigh the transducer and hold it level. I haven't had any problems with fish hitting it yet or getting caught in it and I've probably pulled about 40 fish through the ice. It works great because my bracket/transducer set up can rotate about 120 degrees to make it level. http://imgur.com/GA4DSP7

When I first used my boat rig I mounted it with zip ties to an old tip up, then you just open up the trap and used that to keep it level and in the hole. You can get fancy and make the vertical adjustable to drop it further in the hole.

I keep a smell plastic spring clamp in my fish finder box. Just  clamp the cord to the side to hold it. The ice ducer has some real weight to it. It's like a rock on the end of the string . I will hug the ice all the way down and sit just under the ice nice and out of the way . I don't use a float

This is sort of what I use for my Garmin transducer.  The Garmin DownVu 'ducer is long and mounts on the end, so I don't think there would be any way to keep it level otherwise.  I have mine screwed to the bottom of an old tipup.  Works great and it all fits in a long, skinny "6-pack" cooler so the transducer is protected during travel.
