side imaging ?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
