Down Imaging ?


Recommended Posts

I want to sit in one spot & target fish under my bow & see my jig moving up & down. Is this possible with a Down Imaging locator ? So far all I understand is I have to be moving 8 mph. What type unit is best for sitting still ?

Thanks for suggestions. B

I think your 8 mph info is not good info. I use down imaging all the time on my trolling motor. Sitting still you won't have the same images as moving just like on 2d sonar. I don't want to start a Ford/Chevy discussion so I recommend that you look at some at BPS in Springfield or Council Bluffs and talk to the guys at the electronics counter.

Thanks, I will do that. When I was ide fishing with some guys, one had a portable sounder that showed the bait & fish comming up to get it. "Winkiedoodles" on youtube has some Table Rock videos he using a unit & sits on top of the fish like that.. I need more info :)

I use down imaging all the time from sitting still to drifting and have no issues at all. kinda fun watching a fish come up and take your bait.

That is some incouraging information !!! I knew eventually Id get the answer I wanted to hear ! ;) Thanks.
