Humminbird Transducer Trolling Motor Adapter Bracket
Purchased this to mount my Humminbird 565 to my Motorguide Bulldog 40 trolling motor. Did exactly what I needed. Worked very well using the hardware supplied with the fishfinder. All I used from this kit was the clamp, and bracket. I probably could've made one, but I'm happy with it. Gives my motor a nice clean look. The only thing they could've done was powder coat the bracket black to make it blend with the trolling motor. I ended up wrapping the trolling motor with electrical tape so the brackets wouldn't scratch it up. Other than that good product.

does the job
i needed a trolling motor mount for my old humminbird, and this fit no problem onto my motorguide that came on my basstracker tx-17. the kit comes complete with everything you need to mount a transducer to the trolling motor. the zip ties are pretty beefy. i used my own zipties (smaller ones) for securing the transducer cable along the shaft. also, it comes with 2 hose clamps one large one medium to fit different sized motor housings. i havent run into any underwater obstructions, so time will tell how durable the mount is. but so far so good. i have grounded it into soft beach accidently and it didnt bend or break. i'd buy it again.
it would look cool if the clamp and mount were black to match most modern freshwater trolling motors. but stainless and galvanized are more about function than form, so ...

good product for the price
very good bracket for humming bird sounder on electric motor .sturdy and compact. only problem i ran into is we have 2 dakota electric motors and they have a skeg on the bottom to protect the prop which sticks down 4 inch's below motor so you have to mount the bracket and transducer slightlly off to one side or the other closer to bow portion of motor as not to get back wash from prop works good does not effect sounder as it has 60 degree shot off bottum. all in all a very good investment and excellant service and dlivery from bass pro .thank's for prompt delivery to canada b.c.

This bracket is really not too expensive for what you gain on the water. As with most brackets and mounts, I think the hardware was okay to above average, but what a treat having a fish finder up front. Do buy some more zip-ties if you like neatness, also so the wire for the transducer does not get squished in the trolling motor mechanism. We fish lakes in central Florida so be mindful when trolling in shallow water or stumpy bottoms.
