Product Of The Week - Fish Obsessed - Dominator Mount

DOMINATE the water and take your fishing to the highest level with the most versatile and innovative livescope mount  available on the market.  We married the original Dominator and our zero degree mount to put together this turn key package deal at a discounted price!  Eliminate the guesswork and confusion on plug and play components.  Mount on trolling motor shafts or independent poles from diameter range 1.125" - 1.375".    Fully loaded and ready to go fishing Dominator style!

Perspective view:  The  perspective mounting bracket  with integrated ratcheting adjustments allows for more  time fishing and less time aligning your livescope views; all while keeping your transducer straight forward and vertically aligned. Allows for multiple starboard and port mounting configurations  for all types of mounting styles.  Designed to be the fastest multi-function mount that has the capability of converting forward/down view to perspective view in a variety of different configurations.   Ratcheting motion allows the user to quickly tune their perspective sonar images for varying water depths.  Quick view changes with total beam coverage will have you back to Fishing in seconds!

Forward view and down view:  The zero degree/straight clamps that we offer corrects the transducer geometry problem associated with the 8 degree clamp that came with the livescope kit, allowing you to have your sonar image, GPS position and transducer targets lined up.  This improves the accuracy of your readings in vertical and forward/downward mode, making it simple and intuitive to get on the fish you are seeing as well as locate your lure or bait on the sonar screen.

- The Yellow Belly are still in good numbers whereas the Bass have been hard finding them in numbers, Deeper points such as the Bull Creek Arm has had better numbers of fish hanging around, using blades and plastics have seen better numbers being caught.

The Southern end of the lake on the edges of the timber have fished well, trolling lipless crankbaits and shallower hardbodies along the tree lines has been successful. Another great option in this large is trolling old creek bed out from the wall, a deeper hardbody is ideal for this and has been getting plenty of attention of some larger fish.

- Winter is only around the corner and already seeing some very positive signs, reports of 2 fish over 1.20 have already been caught and numerous fish around the meter mark. These fish have pushed shallow quite early into the season and the fishing will only get better. The Jackall Gantarel and Gigantarel‘s have proved there worth amongst the shallow water. The Yellow Belly have been quite active, large lake points with standing timber has been the go too, targeting these fish with Zx blades and Gulp minnow grubs have been popular.
