Would love to Bobcat . Would love to see a hummingbird that was any good work. I know they must be out there. I have two that came on boats laying on the self in my shop because they would not read the bottom consistently. Have fished with a couple of guys with side imaging and they would say we are on fish and I have never caught a fish. I would take the depth finder and put it on regular down reading and I could go find fish with it. So I figure they work I have just never seen it work. I have been using Lowarnce since they went into business and have never needed customer service. I have fished with medic and he has set my depth finders up to do some things that I could not figure out. Plus it is hard for me to find anybody that has a Hummingbird I know they are out there but just not in my crowd.
I just enjoy listening to you never miss a chance to rack Lowarance . I suspect they stole you first born. LOL. All in good fun maybe we can get togeather and fish sometime.
Not my firstborn but lets just say the love ended soon and a bad break up.
These Humminbird side imagers are a awesome tool if you know what you are looking for and how to use them. The very best thing they do is find habitat as in brush, rock piles ledges and they can do it out 100 feet either side of the boat. You then move the curser over to it and mark it as a waypoint and go back to it with GPS and look at it up close and personal on 2D and side imaging. Takes a lot of drive time out of hunting fish. I love mine and the down imaging will be even more of a tool when it gets here in January.
I guess I am so loyal to them number one because they work and number 2 I can get help when I need with them. I did not have that experience with Lowrance and I am an extremely loyal type guy. Team, Country, Town, State, TFF, Local Feed Store. Yep I'm a big ole' born and bred Texas redneck and haven't changed my personality in 53 years.
Pretty dang hard headed about things. Stuffed shirt types that want to tell me it is User Error and infer that me and everyone else on here are beneath them really pi$$ me off.
I wish Lowrance the best but me and my money go to Humminbird. Let's go fishing sometime. I'll drag my boat to Azle and let me wife go visit her mother while we go fish Eagle Mountain. I'll show you what that stuff you have marked looks like.
