Improve imaging and prevent cable damage.

Transducer Location and Tradeoffs

Fishing Transducers are improving every day.  The images displayed by a fishfinder (depthfinder) today are markedly improved from those of just 10 years ago. 

Having a good, high resolution transducer mounted on the bow of the boat gives an advantage as it shows fish in relation to the fishermans position versus 15 to 25 feet behind.  

Many have tried to put transducers on trolling motors and found that the motor itself is quite unkind to the cables and images.  Tearing a cable sheath will create noise on your fishfinder display.  Once torn, a cable can not typically be fixed by the average person.  As such, transducer replacement is the only option.  

A Bowducer transducer mount assembly protects your investment!

Advantages of a Bowducer system


  1. Rigid up to about 4-5 mph
  2. Super fast to remove from the water - even if stuck on something 
  3. Has no pivot points or shear points
  4. Can be taken completely off the boat (for lockup) in the time needed to unscrew the transducer cable
  5. Rotates simply and reliably to any given dimension
  6. Has shear bolts that prevent damage to the downrod or transducer should you hit something.
  7. Can be deployed in about 2 seconds (and retrieved just as fast).
  8. Uses only gravity to maintain the downrod in the cup (eliminating the need to lock pins and such).
  9. Allows the downrod/transducer assembly to be used in multiple locations or even ice and/or dock fishing.
