  • Do I need side imaging on kayak?

    Side-imaging works best when the kayak is moving. Once I found structure or a fish mark, I could switch to down-imaging to investigate. Freeman suggested I adjust the filters on the signal. “Low noise will show less detail but also less interference,” he explains.

    Do I need a depth finder?

    Fish finders are not needed in order to locate and catch fish but they do provide highly valuable information like water temperature, water depth, bottom topography, the presence of fish, baitfish, as well as structure such as weeds, rocks, laydowns, and shelves.

    Where do you put a transducer on a kayak?

    Always mount them in a spot they won’t be limited in their function. The five most popular places to mount a transducer in a kayak are the following: Through the hull, through the scupper holes, with an attached side-arm mount, with a portable suction cup mount, or a kayak specific mounting system.
