From Purple-Gone are the days of using a sounder for gps marks and depth sounding only.


Had my Garmin plotter for about 5 years cost $600.Never used it for Flathed,Whiting or Squid sounding.
I find it hard to beleive that a sounder could pick up fish 3-4 m down
The old Greeks down St Leonards come back with heaps of fish most days and dont even have a sounder.
They know where to go and know how to fish
Maybe the wizz bang ones ok for deep snapper and king fish not much chop for most of the fish caught in PPB
My thought is people spend too much money and time lookin for the easy way to catch fish instead of going out there and getting them

I think some people just like to use the best technology available to them. You can attribute it to any hobby. Fishing, hunting, cars, golf, gaming etc. There’s the older people who like to keep it old school, and not change too much since the days they were kids and there’s the new age people who like the latest technology, experiment with the latest methods etc..

There is no right or wrong, it’s to each their own
