Using Deeper sonar with arm mount on kayak for mapping?
« on: February 07, 2018, 09:17:35 PM »

Hey everyone, right before winter I got a great deal on a Deeper sonar pro plus with GPS mapping ability.  I recently got a good deal on a Deeper arm mount for kayaks and I was wondering if anyone has tried this and what your thoughts were on it. Does it work well from a kayak?  It's amazing from the bank.  My kayak is pretty stable on the water so I don't see it rocking too much.  I've also purchased a generic heavy duty clip on phone mount with flexible arm to hold my phone.  I figured I could just map while kayaking around and get a good idea of where fish might be hanging out.  I'm not so interested in the fish finding aspect, especially on the kayak as I don't see fish hanging out too long underneath the kayak (they usually scatter or jump right away when I go over them).

I'm interested to here yalls thoughts on this!

Have you thought about using the Navionics App on your phone for GPS? There is so many features you can do with App, like track,mark waypoints, use depth highlight range and safety depth. You try the App out for free before you purchase it. I use the app to study before I go fishing anywhere. It helps get an idea on areas I have been overlooking and need to try.

Thank you for responding with your suggestion - I do use Navionics.  The Deeper will be able to give me much more detailed data, down to specific underwater terrain/structure.  The Navionics app is a great way to narrow some of my mapping searches, but I would be able to pinpoint underwater ditches or structure that fish may be hiding under with the Deeper.  I can also mark those areas in the Deeper app - so Navionics and Deeper make a great combo!
