Anyone wanting to fully master their sounder and fish finder can’t go past reading: How to Use an Echo Sounder/Fish finder by John Adams. John, an ex-commercial fisherman from a seafaring family, has drawn on his wealth of experience and knowledge to put together a well-illustrated and comprehensive book to help fishermen use their boating technologies to the max.
This book provides the fisherman with a thorough understanding of how echo sounders work and the principles for detecting fish, such as target strength of fish and bottom discrimination. It elaborates the key capabilities of sonar units, the screen options and fine-tuning functions common to all modern units.
Detailed information is shared on how to set up an echo sounder and adjust the settings, including frequency selection, Bottom Lock, Bottom Zoom, Bottom Follower, White Line function and Time Variable Gain.
Illustrations and underwater acoustic images are provided throughout the book to assist the reader in their learning and applying the information from this book to real life echo sounding out on the ocean, on rivers and in estuaries.
Only 99 pages, this book packs no-frills information into easily-read sections so that you can work on catching the fish!
John was honoured to have the book accepted by the International Game Fishing Association E.K. Harry Library and IGFA Hall of Fame & Museum.
