    Default Mounting a Fish Finder to a trolling Motor?

    I bought a Humminbird Prahana Max 160 and I want to hook it to my Trolling Motor. In the book for the fish finder it says that I have to buy a special mounting package kit, which includes a bracket and a couple of ties/ clamp/ instructions. I have found a bracket. But my question is Do I mount the tranducer just behind the trolling motor fin paralle with the head?
    If so will the fish finder read when the motor is operating? Or will it cause interference?
    You can't catch a fish if your line is not in the water!:fish:

    I have two fishfinders on my boat. One in the bow and the other in the stern. The front transducer is located on the bow mount trolling motor. I've never experienced any interference on either sonar. The rear sonar is connected to the starting battery and the front one is connected to the bow mount battery.
