Side Imaging - Hummingbird

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone used this Side Imaging unit made by Hummingbird? If so, what are your thoughts about it?

I currently use a Hummingbird LCD unit and I am not real impressed with it.

http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1019081&page=3&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

I have it on my new boat but have not tried it on the water. At the end of the message thread that is a Yahoo group mentioned. I would highly recommend reviewing it if you are considering getting one. Good Fishing!!

You should ask Rusty - Whiskers Guide Service. He has one and it is unbelievable. We've used in in the Red River alot and you can really see structure, Sunken Trees etc with it. IT shows fish as white. Cool. Bruce Mosher

I haven't used it for fishing, but it does a good job of showing structure. I dont know how well it would show fish though based on my experience. I have used one for about 6 hours (continually stared at it) and can't say that I saw even one fish. But it was really good showing the structure, that part was impressive.

Go to youtube and search sideimaging. There will be a video with Al Linder and a couple others. You will be able to see this in action. Cool stuff.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
