although I've never understood why people think the fish can't hear or feel this clicking? I hear it in shallow water from the front of the boat.

For fish, I'm on the fence if they hear it or not. But I'm sure they are not spooked by it. Even if they heard it, it would be no different than the whine of the trolliong motor, or the hull noise that transmit in the water.

as long as hb transducers are making the noise maybe hb should consider added some "fish attracting sounds". For those of you laughing right now their are already stand alone units that do this and are used on many pro boats in bassmasters. I read an article one time about them and the pro said the sounds don't attract fish but yet can turn the fish on or even more on when you get into their area if they are not already very active.
