Lowrance Elite 4 Fishfinder/Chart Plotter
« on: August 22, 2013, 08:55:43 AM »
Aloha need some help with my Fish Finder?  Installed it on my Kayak no problem and everything works fine it's just no picking up fish and I know there are fish below the kayak?  Is there something I need to adjust on the finder or could it be something wrong the finder?

Make sure the fish alarm is on.

Try cranking up the sensitivity setting.

How & where did you mount your transducer?
Oh, God, Thy sea is so great,and my kayak is so small...

Thanks for the help!

I turned the alarm on and it was sounding off but it was sounding off on surface clouds.  I will turn the sensitivity up and see if that works also.  The other thing is when I went out the other day it was picking up my fishing line so I thought that was a good sign.  The transducer is in the back hull facing the correct way.

Cotton:  did you get your Elite 4 to work?  I just got one also, but haven't installed it yet. What did you use to mount the transducer... Goop, electricians putty, or ??

I just got me one Friday, installed it Friday night and took it out Saturday evening. most fish I ever caught in 2 hours ;D. I used silicone to mount the transducer in the hull
