New fish finders
« on: November 17, 2018, 07:01:02 AM »

Iím replacing 2 fish finders with Helix 9ís.  My questions is if it is worth it to have the one in the bow(transducer mounted on trolling motor) have side imaging?  Does anyone use side imaging up front?  Some pry do but am wondering when turning if it affects it? Should I just save the money and put a DI up front?

I have side and DI in both locations. I only use side imaging a little in the front. Mostly DI in front.

360 is awesome. I use it along with DI and see just about everything.

Seems like most people don't use SI up front very much. The various new ways to look ahead or all around seem to be the smoking hot ticket lately. I haven't even had a chance to see it in action, but I sure do hear about it!

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.
