The breadth of tools available in today’s world of bass fishing electronics is absolutely fantastic.
It seems like it was only a few years ago, when the electronics technology available for bass anglers focused primarily on different types of fish finders such as flashers and chart recorders.
Recently, however, advances in electronic technology now allow bass fishermen to locate their position with global positioning systems (GPS); monitor the subsurface world with underwater cameras and use sonar units sensing the underwater world both vertically and horizontally using side-scanning technologies.
Below, Al Lindner (formally of In-Fisherman and now Angling Edge fame) shows the benefits side-scanning sonar units and how they provide an amazing perspective of the underwater environment. This in-turn, of course, can help you catch more bass …
So get a snack, sit back and enjoy the show!
Next time you are in the market for a sonar unit, keep the benefits of side-scanning units in mind.
It just may help you catch that “lunker of a lifetime” …
