Some Good Ol' Fishing Tips
A good Fish Finder or sounder is the ultimate cheat when bringing up fish. Are you planning on targeting a certain species? All good fisherman know having fresh live bait creates many more strikes. Fish finders a few years ago could only see underneath your boat. With advances in sounder technology you can now see vertically and horizontally. Port and starboard arrays allow you to view much more territory with easy to use side scanning functions. Now even your fish finder can target birds. Where there are birds there will be fish. Fishing can be fun and frustrating at the same time. Whether a novice or someone who makes a living fishing we can assist you in getting your boat properly outfitted.
What to know
Multi Function Displays and Combos have bundled common Marine Electronics components into 1 unit offering a variety of functions. This solution is becoming the standard practice with most newer production boats. These combo devices are designed to be easily used and operated by either a beginning boater all the way thru to a USCG approved Master Captains License.
Most boaters have run aground at one point or another. Hitting a sandbar or shoal can be quite costly - not to mention embarrassing. Replacing running gear and transducers is not an enjoyable process when easily avoidable. With the latest in depth finder advances you can comfortably avoid these common pitfalls. If running at any speed when hitting bottom, injury is sure to occur. Depth finders can stand alone or be incorporated with your FishFinder.
Having an autopilot does not make you lazy. When plotting a course you must take into account many different variables like currents, wind and adverse weather. Letting the auto pilot do some of the work for you allows you to concentrate on other nautical events and surroundings that might require the your attention.
