Using a Fishfinder Is Not Cheating


Why I Always Use a Fishfinder


After getting basic knowledge of fish finding techniques, the talents should be challenged by learning advanced and complex settings. A fish finding device should be used in collaboration with chart plotter through split screen to facilitate in recognition of new terms and readings. This allows upgraded information and recording and re-evaluation of it even when the time has passed.

As the critics debate on the use of multiple screen system that if one function fails, the whole device is useless. To cope up with that a backup GPS option should be readily available. When a fish is identified with a certain place the split screen allows the plotter to highlight things around the target point. The highlighting helps in identifying any built structure or obstacle. The device also comes with the zoom option to know more about the bottom. The readings show the type of base whether hard or soft with the difference in line thickness reading. The whole system works in wave types and depends on the kind of surface, it hits before bouncing back. The device also comes with temperature difference monitors to locate the fish. As fish reside in specific temperature perimeters that’s why the readings help in their location.

The device has an automatic tuning setting which works perfectly alright majority of the times. But in case of heavy water activities like planktons or algae the tune settings need to be changed. The fish presence can be monitored on screen in the form of arches, but they will be visible only if the boat is not idle. In idle state the fish response cannot be examined through the transducer cone.

A best fish finder allows a uniform trouble free flow under it. The transducer of the device is adjusted for this purpose. The more you fish the more you will get familiar with your device and the more you will know how it will work best.
