Side Imaging Fishfinders

Side Imaging Fishfinders

With technology improving day to day in electronics, this means new advancements in fishing gear. One new advancement that comes to mind is side imaging for fish finders.


This new feature will give us fisherman the big edge we need in fishing tournaments.

Unlike the standard fishing finders that just shoot sonar straight down, side imaging captures a side view of structure and fish.

Fishing companies such as Lowrance and Humminbird have hopped on this new technology and incorporated it in their new fish finders.

While these new side imaging fish finders aren’t a drop in the bucket, after you test one out you’ll find that they are well worth the price. The LCD displays are super clear and easy to read.

You’ll be able to find structure within minutes, which signifies where the big fish could be hiding.

And when you add GPS input and chartplotting with this new side imaging sonar technology, you’ll be able to mark your favorite spots to fish.


If you’re a big trolling fan, a side imaging fish finder can be even more beneficial to you. As you troll by you’ll be able to capture everything around you.

Soon as you see structure, you can do a u-turn and go over the structure that you think may be holding fish. When you start to get hits, mark it on your GPS, see how valuable this type of technology can be for fisherman.

It sure is an incredible breakthrough!
