Take a piece of pressure treated 2"x2" wood about 3" long. Cut a V longways on one side (about1/2" deep and the width of the piece of wood). This will stabilize the wood on the round motor housing of the trolling motor. Attach your transducer to the piece of wood. Use a screw/band clamp to attach the wood to the bottom of the trolling motor housing. Run the transducer cable up the shaft of the trolling motor. Allow some slack to allow motor to be lowered and raised. Electrical tape or cable tie the transducer cable to the shaft to eliminate clutter and for a neat appearance. That's all there is to it. I have done it on a couple of trolling motors. It is secure, does not pick up electrical interference from the motor and is easy to take off if necessary. If you don't like home-made, most depth finder manufacturers offer a trolling motor adapter ( can be bought at Bass Pro Shops, Cabelas, etc) that only costs a few bucks and replaces the wooden adapter described above.
