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.

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
