Good news for fishing fans

by diane 2010-01-12 02:27

Have you ever thought how many ways a GPS can help fishermen?

The question was answered byTrent Peterson and the staff at Clark Marine Sales in Franklin.

"Our goal is to provide information because I know there is a lot that GPS (Global Positioning System) units will do that people are just scratching the surface of,'' Peterson said. "And with the new stuff like the Side Scan and the Structure Scan (sonar units) I think there are just a lot of questions out there. We're not going to pressure anybody into buying anything. We just want to educate people on what their GPS units can do and how they can better utilize them."

One of the more basic functions of a GPS is to prevent anglers from getting lost on the water. A map chip can be inserted into the unit indicating where the angler is located and a line is drawn on the map as the individual moves about the lake.

"If you're on a new waterway you're not familiar with and you get turned around, all you've got to do is follow the line on your screen and it will take you back where you came from,'' Peterson said.

Some of the other GPS capabilities include marking points to recall sweet spots, brush piles and drop-offs.

There have been advances in GPS and sonar units, which for years have let fishermen look beneath a boat, but now, allow them to see from side-to-side under the water.

"You can drive your boat parallel to a bank or a creek drop-off and see what's over there where you would be fishing,'' Peterson said. "They've made tremendous advances in technology. And the newer units give you much more definition. In the old days it was not as clear and precise and now the images of what's under the water are greatly enhanced on your screen."

The definition is so sharp that fish can be detected.

"One of the biggest advantages is, let's say you find a tree that has a little bit of it sticking out above the water,'' Peterson said. "You can shoot your scan over to the side and see if there's any fish in the tree. It will definitely pick up pictures of fish."
