Well, I'm pretty excited as I should be getting a new garmin echomap 94sv system in the mail in a few days! Was able to get a good deal in a one day sale through West Marine. The product has side and downscan, so I shouldn't have any excuse in catching the linersiders now, lol!

Anyway, wanted to see if anyone had any advice for a first timer? Have a general idea of what I'll be doing but any tricks of the trade would be helpful. Also, any reviews on this unit? From the little bit I am seeing, I am a little concerned about how much the side scan is really going to help with finding fish. Are these concerns legitimate? I mainly fish Lake Whitney. Thanks in advance!
