Fishermen these days are very blessed with hi-tech electronics. Using the new Mega SI, on the Hummingbird Helix, has helped me put more fish in the boat this year.
The side imaging has broadened our horizons and I mean that literally! Now we can see a very sharp image of what is not only below but also to the sides!
I use this early season when searching out the cabbage beds that I will fish through the year. It makes you way more efficient covering a very large section of the lake very quickly.
As seen in the pictures, I also use it to locate fish! Also, when the waters turn over and follows are not easily seen many times you will see the follow on the side imaging.
The technology is there. Use it to your advantage.
