I HAVE been hugely sceptical about sonar devices since testing an early model in the lake behind the Angling Times office.
The water was 3ft deep, and rammed with carp, but the sonar read 30ft and indicated no fish in the vicinity. That came as a bit of shock considering a big scaly item was trying to eat it at the time!
However, thanks to the new Deeper Smart Sonar Pro + I have had a complete change of mind. At a recent carp competition on very weedy venue it not only read the depth accurately but showed on screen where the weed stopped and started, and how thick it was. I didn’t have to cast in and hope for the best. This is a hugely impressive device, and a real edge for the modern carp angler.
