New Humingbird finder that casts out to the bobber?


Benny

Question

Any one have one of the new Humingbird finders that has the little transducer that you cast out to where your going to fish or where the bobbers are?
Do they work like the advertizements, and do they seem accurate?
Also with Minnesota having a one line rule could this be consedered your one line?
Or does the line have to have a hook on it to be consedered a line fished with?
Thanks, Benny

I have one of these, not the wrist display model, the one that has the larger display. Since it has no hooks I am close to sure it would not be considered a lure on a second line, I will burn that bridge if I have to cross it. Do they work, yes. Not the high speed, low drag unit a Lowrance X-anything is. I use it to find holes in rivers and when shore fishing. It also serves well when bobber fishing to find out the depths around the boat when fising on/near breaks. As for using the transducer for a bobber, that may be a possibilty, never tries myself, it seems to be to bouyant for a bobber. But like I said, I have not tried that. The wrist model display looks a bit rinky dinky but if only looking for depth differences would probably be okay. I works great for my purposes and I have found structure in places that I did not know any existed before. Eats batteries, 8-AA like a madman though so I do not have it on all the time. I hope that Lowrance and Garmin jump on this too. They can only get better.

My thought was to use it while bobber fishing , that way I could see what is acually happening out at the bobber depth.I use my X85 now on the boat to find a drop off or break then try to ancor up wind and hopfully hit it right to drift back over the break.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
