Mapping Submerged Roadbeds Using Modern Sonar Technology

Spread the love

The power of modern sonar is amazing. Not only can you use the info on the screen to get depth data but today’s units literally draw a picture of subsurface conditions for you.

Quite a benefit… as long as you can interpret the images on the sonar screen 🙂

In this video, Bassmaster Elite Pro Angler, Mike Iaconelli, shows how to use all the features of a sophisticated sonar mapping unit to unravel the mysteries of submerged roadbeds…

Pretty cool info in my book!

What Was Your Classic Dream?

Spread the love

Looking at the title, it instantly brought a smile to my face for two reasons:

  1. The question might cause some folks to scramble through there memory banks to remember that one “classic dream” from past slumbers; or
  2. Trigger memories from competitive oriented bass fisher-people about fishing the “Classic” … the Bassmaster Classic that is!

Okay, I’ll confess, I was one of those in the second group during times I remained active in federated bass clubs.  During those years, I tried to make work my way via the BASS Federation pathway like Jeff Freeman did to gain a berth in this year’s Classic.

The flame started more than a few years ago (more like a few decades) and remained fairly active through the early 90’s until other priorities took hold.

After watching the events of the past two weeks culminating in the three days of the 2010 Bassmaster Classic this past weekend, it seems a small piece of steel struck some flint … we’ll just have to see where it leads 🙂
