360

Post by MartynCat » Mon Jan 06, 2014 6:02 am

Been using SI since 2008 with a 997 to start with and a 1198c SI for the last 3 years. Now have a 360 unit, arrived a week ago.

In the process of getting the 360 transom mount bought and built.

Going to be used for pike fishing in England on lakes & rivers. This is on waters where we are aiming to catch fish bigger than 20lb (over 40"). Mostly on bait at anchor. All catch & release.

Been reading everything I can find on the 360 & using & configuring it.

Degree of trepidation as while I am hoping I don't get technical problems, I notice that others have been having issues!

Here are photos of a November 31lb 3oz fish (41" long 24" girth) and the SI shots of the fish located prior to anchoring and then the pike moving towards the bait prior to getting the take.

Just like learning the difference in the images produced by SI in relation to 2D sonar, there is a learing curve involved between what SI shows and 360 shows. Just takes practice.
The benefit of 360 is you can remain motionless and see all the way around the boat in real time. It does the scanning for you.

This shows a building foundation and 3 bass about 15" in length and a bass about 10" in length at the 20' range line next to the foundation:

I had the Sensitivity set a little too high for the depth as I had just moved from another location with a depth twice as much.
You should have no problem seeing fish as large as your picture, which direction to cast to it, and how far to cast.

Thanks, the pike we are targeting on one large reservoir are big (it has produced 43 over 30lb & 2 x 40s this winter season so we are looking for pike that will be anything from 37" long to 44" long.

The ability to see the fish as they move around the boat at anchor or when drifting with lures is crucial. That's where the 360 could be the "game changer" Doug V has talked about!

Has anyone got examples of similar sized fish on the 360 eg big stripers maybe?

How do you calculate that the bass are 15" from the 360 screenshot?

I measure them after I catch them.
After you see a few and verify their size with a catch, then you can about guess by looking at them on the display.
