When will Lowrence come out with Sideimaging?

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone here represent lowrence or know if they are going to be coming out with something to compete with the SI. All i got to say is that sideimaging just made everything obsolete. Why would you want to just look at a line on a screen anymore when you can see the whole bottom.

Not soon enough! I can't leave the Lowrance line, so I'll wait. Plus, I don't want to switch to Navionics.

Side imaging is nice, but it only has limited application. It only works at very slow speed, otherwise the image is very blurry.

I'm guessing that they're working on it now. When and if their sales drop they will come out with something comparable.

SI, isn't going to replace the traditional sounders. Its might be nice as an additional sounder but it won't replace it.

It wont happen right away but give it time. I rather see the whole bottom, not some squiggly line that looks like one of those heart monitors in the hospital.

anything that makes it easier for the ave fisherman to fish will always be popular. my finder does read the whole bottom..... its just a different way that information is displayed.

- but like stated before - it would be a nice addition. but i would never think of replacing my traditional finder.

the only thing that competes with lowrance is raymarine. raymarine being the heavy weight.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
