Easy & Cheap!

Do you want to know how to install the Garmin Striker 4 Transducer on a Hobie Lowrance Ready Kayak for $1.18? If so, this video is for you! I link to the parts you’ll need below, and if you’re making your own bracket, the video gives you the dimensions you’ll need as well. Either way, you’ll see the quick and full transducer mounting and have your fish finder up and working in no time! I hope it’s helpful and dramatically reduces the time and headache of finding or creating a solution for this common issue!

Here’s the part on Amazon or here’s another one …but if you don’t need that many, you can get it from Lowe’s like I did for $1.18 for a 5-pack (item #816301, Model #42820). You’ll need two to mount a single transducer.

The dimensions I give in the video are 2.25” x 0.5” with the holes separated on center by 1.5”. They should prove useful if you plan on making something yourself. Please remember that the bolts in the package work because the part is thin and sturdy. If you make your own part you’ll need to likely use other bolts. That said, remember, you can purchase the parts I used for only $1.18 at the hardware store.

Don’t stop with just the fish finder though, here’s how you can rig your Compass for efficient fishing!

My name is Ron. I’m “Kayak Fishing Addict” on YouTube! I was bit by the kayak fishing bug and I’ve been addicted ever since. This is my blog where I discuss everything about my kayak fishing adventures, including the backstory. I’ll share what fishing lures I use, the types of fish I catch like redfish, speckled trout, and flounder, how I film, and what I encountered in the marsh. You’ll get all of my kayak fishing catches, tips, and tricks that you can use to put more fish in the boat!
