Where to mount my Fish Hawk


Recommended Posts

I need some help and expertise on where to mount my fish hawk.  I have a 23 ft Crestliner and I'm not sure if it's better to mount my FH display by my fish finder or if I should mount it near my down rigger?  I do a lot more walleye fishing than I do salmon fishing so I can mount it on my track  with my rod holders close to my down rigger or I can buy a new mount for my fish finder and attach it there.  it would be a lot easier to buy a mount and put it on my track closer to the down rigger but not sure if it would be in my way.

My boat is 26’ and I have some distance between the helm and stern.

What I did was move the fish hawk to a Big Jon electronics mount and put it on the track near my rigger. My thought is near the rigger is where I want to be able to see it when adjusting depth. Not at the helm. I have a Bluetooth compatible fish hawk so I mounted an old iPhone at the helm and connected the two via Bluetooth. I still get the same info as the fish hawk display and can the adjust speed as needed.

I’ve been running it like this for about two years. So far I’m happy with it.
