This seminar is FREE for anyone who wishes to attend.  Please register with us at events@radioworld.ca


Transducer Shield and Saver Installation

Radioworld Pro Staff Danny Dunn had his Lowrance Structure Scan transducer mounted on the side of his jack plate with the standard mount supplied by Lowrance.  After about a month of fishing his rusted bolt and twisted bracket needed a face lift to ensure his side imaging sonar was performing properly.

Danny’s boat has a 8″ Slidemaster jack plate which makes a perfect mounting surface for the Transducer Shield and Saver mount.  The best part of all is that you don’t have to do any drilling into your boat.  These mounts will use the factory holes on most jackplates.  Let’s take a look at how he mounted his Lowrance LSS-2 10″ transducer with Transducer Shield and Saver.  Notice the before and after pictures…what a difference!

Transducer Shield and Saver has mounting solutions for transom mount and trolling motor mount transducer.  These mounts not only secure your transducer, but they also prevent it from being damaged in case of an unexpected impact.

Shane Turcotte has been fishing as a Walleye professional for the last 3 years on the Northern Ontario Walleye Trail. He spends most of his time on the water as a tournament angler or showing others tips and techniques for catching all species through his guide service – Hooked Professional Guide Services & Promotions.

His guide service primarily operates on the St. Marys River system but he often frequents many lakes all around Ontario. Shane is the acting Vice President of the NOWT where his responsibilities include writing articles and managing website content.  He is also the chair & Emcee of an amazing annual professional walleye event in Sault Ste Marie( www.kiwt.net ) which is sanctioned by the NOWT.

If you want proof that Shane can catch fish when it counts here it is.  He captured his first Walleye Tournament win on the NOWT this August and cashed $10,000 cheque. Looking ahead to 2012, he will be making the jump to full time status on the Cabelas Masters Walleye Circuit, NOWT and competing on the AIM walleye Circuit as well.
