With more individuals and avid anglers investing in fish finders to boost their fishing expeditions, finding the ideal mount has never been more important. Here's your comprehensive guide to answer those burning questions related to fish finder mounts!

What are the best ways to mount a fish finder?

To make the most of your hooking endeavors, your fish finder Mount should be secure, practical, and suitable for your vessel type. Handlebar rail mounts and drill-base mounts are among the best solutions to ensure a seamless fishing experience.

For instance, the iBOLT Universal Marine Fish Finder Handlebar Rail Mount is perfect for smooth installations to kick off your adventure swiftly.

This mount provides stability without compromising functional access to your fish finder's screen and clamps onto your boat's rail securely. You can rotate, turn, or tilt the mount according to your preference.

Drill-base mounts, such as the iBOLT Fish Finder Drill-Base Mount, are perfect for those who prefer a more permanent mounting solution. This type of mount is securely attached to the boat's surface and provides unrivaled stability, even in rough water conditions. The set-up requires drilling into your vessel, which ensures the mount stays put throughout various sea conditions – a true ally on your sea adventures.

Whether you go for the flexibility of a Handlebar Rail Mount or the stability of a Drill-Base Mount, both options give you the confidence of knowing your fish finder is secure and accessible whenever you need it. 

What are the different types of fish finder mounts?

Navigating the waters can pose a significant challenge without the ideal fishing gear in place. One such indispensable aid is a fish finder mount, determined by the type of vessel you are maneuvering and your specific fishing requirements. With diverse mount options, each offering unique advantages, selecting an appropriate one accelerates your fishing escapades. Let's explore the various types of fish finder mounts that can amplify your fishing experiences:

Handlebar Rail Mounts: These systems are perfectly tailored for smaller boats featuring a rail system. They make for a practical solution with their ready-for-action design.

Drill Base Mounts: Aimed at heavy-duty usage, these mounts are suitable for larger vessels. If you're seeking a more permanent and sturdy attachment, these mounts are your go-to solution.

Clamp Handlebar Rail Mounts: For anglers prioritizing easy installations without the need for drilling into a beautiful hull, these mounts emerge as an ideal choice. They boast of quick installation and removal offering exceptional practicality.

Understanding your specific needs and evaluating the offerings of each mount type will ensure your next fishing adventure rides with absolute convenience and efficiency. Let iBOLT's diverse range of fish finder mounts propel you towards superior experiences in the vast waters.

How do I choose the right fish finder mount for my boat?


Choosing the right fish finder mount begins with understanding your fishing environment and the design of your vessel. Consider factors such as exposure to weather, water conditions, and physical space constraints on your boat. If you're out in open water, facing high winds, or rough seas, a mount offering maximum stability, like the iBOLT 38mm Composite Universal Marine Fish Finder to Metal AMPs Drill Base Mount, is an excellent choice.

Remember, the type of mount will also impact your interaction with the fish finder. For example, mounts with adjustable angles will let you view the screen from different positions, a necessity when you're moving about on your boat.

Moreover, consider compatibility with your specific fish finder model. iBOLT's versatile range of products includes universal mounts that provide a flexible solution for any device size or brand.

Lastly, consider the installation process. While drill-base mounts offer unmatched stability, they require more effort to install. If drilling into your boat is not desirable, consider opting for a clamp-based or rail-based mount, such as the iBOLT Incredibolt Clamp Handlebar Rail Mount. The simplicity of installation and removal remains a core attribute of iBOLT's innovative design strategy.

In iBOLT, we believe your fishing trips should be about the thrill of the catch, not the hassle of working with your equipment. Therefore, we have designed our mounts to be not only sturdy, reliable, and adaptable to varied scenarios but also easy to install and use.
