I have a castable fish finder and notice the bass are?

Suspended between 2-4 in a pond that is 7 ft deep on average. I cannot bottom fish a texas rig if they are 2-4 ft up. I can resort to shiners but i only do that once in awhile as i like to improve on my techniques. tHis time of yr in florida they seem to have already spawned. THis time last year i was able to land alot of fish and a 6 lb avaerage is the norm i actually caught a 12pounder in the weed around the edge with a frog. The attack was ferocious and fun but there is no longer any weeds as they have added carp to keep down on the weeds. Any suggestions??

If I buy a new fish finder, can I still use my old transducer?

I have an old (late 80s-early 90s) Humminbird finder and was looking to upgrade. If I get a new Humminbird (looking at a 525 or Piranha), can I continue to use the same transducer, or do I need to us the one that comes with the new finder? Will I be able to use the same mount/bracket that’s already on my boat (at the bottom of the transom)? Also, if I decide to go with a brand besides Humminbird, will I need to remount another new bracket, or are all the brackets pretty much alike? I’m trying to save time, money, and holes in my boat. Thanks everybody!

Best lures/tactics for fall salmon fishing in the Great lakes?

I’m in Ontario I fish between Goderich and Owen Sound off the piers and the rivers and streams. I’ve had good luck on the little cleos and jointed rapalas. Any other lure suggestions.. I also float fish a little bit but that has proven unsuccesful for me.. Any ideas?
