Just a little report about my first trip with side imaging. I got my new boat and installed a Helix 7 on the front and a 798 in the dash. So me and my crappie partner took it out to play and test. We got it set up pretty good, at least I could see stuff like stumps, bait fish balls and things in the creek beds. So we started trolling a creek bed with the side imaging set at 75' and I saw what appeared to be a rather large brush pile off to the right on what appeared to be a smaller creek. I put a waypoint on it and we came back to it later and we took 13 nice keepers off of it. Well now I am excited, so off we went to find some more brush piles and fish. We wound up with 18 keepers because we really did play more than we fished, so I am very happy with the new boat and the new electronics.
O yeah, the boat is a Triton 18c TX with a 115 merc. 4 stroke.
