i know you can set a transducer to shoot thru the bottom of a boat and have heard that you can shoot it thru the ice some refferances say to suspend the transducer in a small bucket of water. this would make it easy to scout new areas atleast for looking for depth not haveing to drill a hole to get that info would save some time. has anyone had success using a finder thru the ice? if so how did you do it and how well did it work/

good idea about the salty water to keep it from freezing, it wont help the transmision any if any thing it would hurt it but with just a small amout cant see that it would make a diff. salt water is more dense and all fish finders have a greatly reduced depth capacity in salt water

i wonder if a little alcohol/water would work to prevent freezing and would that be less harmfull to the enviroment than adding salt any thoughts?

antifreeze? are you kidding why not just dump some used motor oil on the ice. you might think the little that you might use wont hurt anything but hey would you want urine in you drinking water even just a little? comon have a little respect for the enviroment

the curren antifreeze is Less toxic but it is still nasty most many areas require mechanics to recycle it and fine them if they send it down the drain
