Went back to the same ledge I fished Sun. and bite was alot slower. Managed to get 12 keepers but action was not as hot as Sun. Fished until about 1 PM amd came out. Lots of fish still on ledge but just slow. Danny I have been looking at purchasing a side view and was just wondering about yours. Are they hard to set up and what kinda money are we talking about?

Hey Mississippi Slab. Glad to hear the fish are still hanging on the ledges. Thanks for the update. The Humminbird Side Imaging Units are not hard to set up at all. You will have to pay attention when installing the transducer to ensure it is level and free of obstruction on both sides. The default setting on the unit give you a good start as far as reading it. Once you have the unit you guys can call me and I will give you my settings. The 798 should run around $900.00 if you shop around. If you have issues or just want to fast track the learning curve I will go for a short ride around with you guys one evening and show you what I know.
This was the best purchase of fishing gear I have ever made. No question.
