side imaging ?

6 posts in this topic

Most of the pics I have seen are of rivers, flat bains like Milacs. How would this unit work on a lake that is full of structure> The kind where the front of the boat is in 12 feet yet the back end is in 40 feet of water? I fish Ottertail , Clearwater plus many other lakes that the bottom changes drasticly every boat length. Thanks

It's actually better with more structure. At least the images are much more entertaining. I have been on clearwater lake with it and it worked very well. With basin lakes it is usually kinda boring. One thing, Rocky humps/points are easy to see the rocks but it makes it much more difficult to see fish when there are so many rocks. We actually marked fish and then caught a fish in 3 FOW on clearwater on opener.

eyeb, I am heading to Canada Saturday for a week. When I get back would it be possible to hook up with you sometime? I would like to meet you and see this unit for myself. Thanks. I live right outside of monti.

I live in delano and usually fish wright county lakes. If you want to connect to check out the SI that would be OK. Some of the best images you can get will come from rivers cause of all the debris like trees etc. Especially when the river is high. But cool images are not needed. Finding fish and fishy structure is.

Machohorn, You can email me at eyebjm@aol.com Its eyebjm not eyebjim like on FM. I don't regularly view that email so if I don't reply post a SI topic or add to this one asking me to check the email and I will likely see it sooner.

I have the 797 c2si unit. If you are more interested in the 997 you may want to see if someone with a 997 would take you for a spin. Have fun in canada.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
