This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Fishermen know that when your transducer isn’t positioned correctly, your depth finder won’t work properly. They’re also aware that when your depth finder isn’t firing on all cylinders, it’s tough to find the fish. Before your next angling outing, pick up one of these mounting arms, so you don’t have to reach down and fiddle around with your gear every time it gets bumped out of place. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best transducer mounting arm on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 10, 2019:

Noted that both of the Scotty models are telescopic, which gives the owner a bit of flexibility if they plan to use it on different boats or with different transducers. Pointed out that the Brocraft Kayak is a good value for those on a budget, especially when reports indicate that it’s quite easy to install and use. The YakAttack RMS-1046 is the only model that comes with a protective cover, which may be important to some folks.
