Unlike traditional sonar, which offers limited underwater visibility, side scan sonar paints a comprehensive picture of the underwater landscape. This innovation offers several crucial advantages for anglers seeking to improve their fishing game. Bass anglers have heavily relied on this technology for over ten years. The advancements and improvements have made the clarity greater and finding fish habitat and fish easier.

Side scan sonar excels at uncovering submerged structures like rocks, trees, and ledges, perfect habitat for all species. By identifying them accurately, anglers can target their casts where bass are most likely to be.

Locating schools of baitfish is key to finding bigger fish. Side scan sonar helps anglers spot these bait-rich areas, indicating potential bass activity. Armed with this information, anglers can adapt their tactics to match prevailing conditions, boosting their chances of a successful catch. On sidescan you can see exactly how large schools of baitfish and other species are. You are also able to see fish and structure from long distances clearly on sidescan.

Gone are the days of trial and error. Side scan sonar helps anglers find more productive areas faster. You are able to select the brush or target on your screen and set a waypoint. With that ability you are able to cast accurately to put your baits in the best position to get bit. Every major brand has their version of side scan that gives anglers to opportunity to try out the technology.
