Most owners of fishing boats would like to have a radar, but they do n’t view it as essential. Some people choose a move despite the cost. I IMHO this is a serious error because I will never own any boats that do n’t have it, with the exception of small skiffs and pond hoppers. Safety is the apparent explanation. With sensor, you can” view” through clouds and darkness, and it adds a level of collision avoidance to the reduced visibility that no other method can match. The bottom line is that if you have detector on board, you’ll find more fish, so let’s put that aside for a moment and concentrate on the fishing.
The image above shows two ideas. First of all, it would have been insane for us to even leave the dock if we had n’t had radar. The fish were four or five miles from our departure point, and awareness ranged from 30 to 50 feet. You realize that if he does n’t have radar we’ll probably have to turn around and go back home, right? I asked my friend as we made our way to his boat. When we got there and saw the roof on his hard bottom, he agreed, and we both felt relieved. Next, you can see gulls in the background of the picture. Finding those birds had meant finding fish for days. We also would n’t have prayed without radar. However, in this instance, we drove straight to the fish while pointing the bow for the flimsy uneven radar returns.
Different times, I’ve used radar to locate species, especially when it was hard to see them with glasses because the sun was setting. I’ve even used radar to find commercial floats abroad, as well as the mahi-mami swimming beneath them. A glance at the sensor has also occasionally shown me where other ships had gathered for a hot bite.
For better security, if you purchase sensor? You’re right. If you purchase radar, though, as it will increase your fish get? You bet once more.
