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.

Here is a thread that has info on Side Imaging.

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.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
