Paul Shibata will be returning to Radioworld on April 25th to present another seminar in his series “In Pursuit of Sonar Perfection”. This seminar will focus on CHIRP sonar technologies which has been all the rage this year. Paul will explain in simple terms what CHIRP is and what it will do for you over traditional sonar!
Other topics will include:
– New product details, all Elite and HDS models
– New technology, WIFI, PowerPole control, Insight Genesis, etc
Radioworld Pro Staff Danny Dunn had his Lowrance Structure Scan transducer mounted on the side of his jack plate with the standard mount supplied by Lowrance. After about a month of fishing his rusted bolt and twisted bracket needed a face lift to ensure his side imaging sonar was performing properly.
Danny’s boat has a 8″ Slidemaster jack plate which makes a perfect mounting surface for the Transducer Shield and Saver mount. The best part of all is that you don’t have to do any drilling into your boat. These mounts will use the factory holes on most jackplates. Let’s take a look at how he mounted his Lowrance LSS-2 10″ transducer with Transducer Shield and Saver. Notice the before and after pictures…what a difference!
Transducer Shield and Saver has mounting solutions for transom mount and trolling motor mount transducer. These mounts not only secure your transducer, but they also prevent it from being damaged in case of an unexpected impact.
His guide service primarily operates on the St. Marys River system but he often frequents many lakes all around Ontario. Shane is the acting Vice President of the NOWT where his responsibilities include writing articles and managing website content. He is also the chair & Emcee of an amazing annual professional walleye event in Sault Ste Marie( www.kiwt.net ) which is sanctioned by the NOWT.
If you want proof that Shane can catch fish when it counts here it is. He captured his first Walleye Tournament win on the NOWT this August and cashed $10,000 cheque. Looking ahead to 2012, he will be making the jump to full time status on the Cabelas Masters Walleye Circuit, NOWT and competing on the AIM walleye Circuit as well. You can follow Shane on Facebook and Twitter(@hookedproguide) where he shares his favorite tips and techniques.
Shane’s Crestliner boat is equipped with a Lowrance HDS8 and HDS10along with the StructureScan module. His electronics are mounted on RAM Mounts and his boat is powered by a Minn Kota Terrova 101 with iPilot. If you are looking for a day of fishing with some top notch equipment and a great guy we highly recommend booking a trip with Shane.
When Humminbird came out with Side Imaging sonar several years ago it had Great Lakes smallmouth anglers drooling over the fact they could see over 200 feet to each side of their boat. The hardcore largemouth anglers, though, who rarely fish deeper than 8 feet didn’t even bat an eye at the capabilities of side imaging sonar. Looking 200 plus feet to either side of the boat didn’t really make heads turn for these shallow water fishermen.
Radioworld pro-staff and largemouth guru Danny Dunn recently used his Lowrance HDS8 equipped with the StructureScan side imaging sonar module to win the CSFL tournament on Rice Lake. This past weekend he was at it again on Rice Lake for a bass club tournament. He was blown away at how useful side imaging sonar technology is for fishing in water less than 5 feet deep.
“I caught this fish in less than 2 feet of water! I used my side scan to run shorelines looking for laydown wood”, Danny excitedly proclaimed. After he marked the structure with his side imaging unit he went back and flipped the best looking laydown trees with a 5/16 oz Flippin Jig.
“It’s funny, as an ole largemouth fisherman I always thought the high end electronics were for the big water salmon/ walleye/smallmouth fisherman but that’s absolutely not the case! It’s like saying a hammer can ONLY be used to drive a nail. My electronics are a tool in my tool box.”
Danny was able to prefish the shallow waters much quicker than other anglers not taking advantage of their electronics. He was able to quickly drive down shorelines and graph the laydowns and then target the area’s that had the best looking structure. Danny took 2nd place in the club tournament this past weekend and all his credit went to his side imaging sonar unit.
“I wouldn’t go fishing without a reel on my rod, nor would I go fishing without my electronics loaded Navionics charts!”
