HUM­MIN­BIRD

Sport Fishing - - ECONOMICS -

Hum­min­bird’s 360 Imag­ing doesn’t pro­vide a 3D ef­fect on-screen, but it does show what’s in the wa­ter all around the boat, us­ing a trans­ducer that me­chan­i­cally ro­tates in­side a hous­ing. The ver­ti­cal hous­ing low­ers and raises the trans­ducer and is mounted to the tran­som (trans­duc­ers are also avail­able for sev­eral models of Minn Kota fresh­wa­ter trolling mo­tors).

The 360 trans­ducer uses a 455 kHz imag­ing beam that slices through the wa­ter, send­ing pic­ture­like im­ages to the mul­ti­func­tion dis­play. An­glers can use it from a sta­tion­ary boat or while mov­ing slowly ahead.

Hum­min­bird says the ef­fec­tive range of 360 Imag­ing is about 150 feet. “It al­lows an­glers to see struc­ture, bait­fish and game fish ahead of the boat, and it pro­vides con­stant up­dates

Hum­min­bird’s 360 Imag­ing, in­tro­duced in 2012, uses imag­ing sonar to cap­ture pho­to­like data of what’s around your boat out to about 150 feet.
