As one of humanity’s oldest pastimes, it’s safe to say that fishing has changed a lot over the centuries. What once was primarily a way to keep your belly full, fishing has evolved into a sport ranging from casual to professional. No matter where you see yourself on that spectrum, one thing is for sure, fishing electronics can have dramatic effects on your success as an angler. As such, we at Slippery Winds Wilderness Lodge on Yoke Lake, Ontario, would like to share a few tips on making the most of your fishing electronics as you prepare for your trip.

Spend Time Scouting
If you’ve ever had a chance to use fishing electronics in the past, you know they offer a wealth of information. Thanks to modern technology, you can gain a decent understanding of where the fish will be. Still, learning where the fish spend their time or identifying likely habitat is something you do before your outing. Not only will you become more familiar with your fishing boat’s electronics, but you’ll also know where to go right away. What’s more, once you identify a good location, you can pin it to your GPS, making it much easier to find later.
Using an Underwater Camera
While sonar is highly effective in showing you outlines of fish and their habitat, you may wish to see more details. Underwater fishing cameras are an excellent way not only to check out habitat but, perhaps more importantly, to show you what kind of fish are swimming below you. Knowing what kind of fish are beneath the boat will help you determine the type of lure you’d like to use or whether you should move on to a new spot.
Sonar Sight Fishing
If you remember how fun it was to watch bluegill and bass off the dock take your worms as a youngster, then you’ll probably enjoy the electronic version of sight fishing. Even the most transparent water won’t allow you to see much farther than 10-15 below the surface. That’s when sonar comes in handy. With the right instruments, you can fine-tune your sonar to a narrower beam, which will allow you to see your lure. You’ll notice the movements as you jig, as well as the fish. When your target approaches, you can try various techniques to entice them into battle. With enough time and patience, eventually, you’ll be able to identify what the screen looks like as a fish approaches, making you a formidable adversary to any species!
