Rigging the Predator XL with a Humminbird HELIX 7 sonar/GPS combo
From its innovative element seating system, to its interchangeable XL consoles, to its dazzling array of integrated conveniences for the multi-species angler, the Old Town Predator XL is truly designed to be the Ultimate Fishing Machine. At the heart of every Predator XL adventure, from a smallmouth-infested northern river to a southern bayou teeming with trophy redfish, are modern marine electronics, designed to rapidly and easily find fish, and to navigate safely to and from the fishing grounds. The Minn Kota and Utility consoles for the Predator XL are fish finder-ready, which makes the installation of Humminbird electronics quick and easy. Transducers sit safely within their own protective pockets in these consoles, so your adventures into stump-filled or boulder-laden waters can take place without worrying about transducer damage. Thoughtfully-designed rigging channels in the XL consoles allow you to rig all of your Humminbird’s cables without drilling a single hole in your Predator’s hull. Removable mounting plates in the XL consoles ensure a clean “fit-and-finish” that will make your electronics installation the envy of the rest of your fishing club. In this video, we provide step-by-step instructions for installing a Humminbird HELIX 7 sonar/GPS combo on a Predator XL Minn Kota, helping to transform it into the Ultimate Fishing Machine.
