A Pro Angler's Fish Finder Setup & Tips

A Pro Angler's Fish Finder Setup & Tips
May 12, 2021

Pro angler, John Hunter, takes a break from the FLW circuit to discuss all things fish finders. John breaks down the specifics of every fish finder he is currently running on his boat during the fishing tournaments. Including how many he has, where they are positioned on the boat, how he displays the fishing navigator, how he displays side imaging vs down imaging. But this Gearbox Talk isn’t ALL pro talk, John also breaks down the basics of how to read a fishing graph and gives some quick tips to easily identify structure and fish. John also talks about the amazing advancements with newer fish finders like the Lowrance ActiveTarget Live Sonar.
