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.

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. It is highly recommended to use a FishObsessed zero degree adapter with this system.

  • Quick release capable using FishObsessed mounts
  • Quickly move from forward, down, and perspective mode
  • Port or starboard mounting capable
  • 1-1/8" to 1-3/8" clamping capacity
  • Fully CNC machined from bar stock

Fishing Our Region

Cooby Dam - It’s been quite a good week on Cooby even after the rain. A slight rise in water level is exactly what this lake needed before winter hits.
Plenty of fish up the northern arm and reacting well to a variety of baits and lures.
The old faithful ZX and TT switchprawn has been the stand out yet again. For the bait anglers both saltwater yabbies and worms proving good.

Cressbrook Dam - A slow week on our local lake but there is fish to be caught if you can time it just right. The Bull creek arm is holding the better numbers of fish. Working the larger points up that end of the dam has seen the best catches. Spoons and tail spinners getting the majority of the bass, while hoping blades and soft vibes has caught quite a few yellow belly.

Leslie Dam - Unfortunately the water has dirtied up this past week and made the fishing a little tougher compared to previous times. Definitely fishing the main basin around the dam wall has seen the most fish landed amongst the clearer water. Trolling may be the best option to find those more active fish. Saltwater yabbies proving to be the most consistent way.

Somerset Dam - Somerset has changed much the last few weeks, still plenty of fish around pelican point and red rock. The fish have been holding tight to the bottom from 20-30ft of water. Hot Bite Spectres and spoons and have accounted for the majority of the fish.

Glenlyon Dam - Another consistent week from Glenlyon, a small rise in water level has been perfect for this lake in the lead up to the winter Cod Bite, some fish have been. Caught on the shallow banks, Top Water and larger Swimbaits have been popular. For the Yellow Belly anglers plenty of fish schooled up tight to the trees. Jigging Blades, soft vibes have been getting plenty of attention.
