Josh Douglas makes a living with his electronics as a professional bass fisherman, and you can bet he’s always reading water with Lowrance’s powerful StructureScan technology. Josh discusses the importance of the range setting, which is how far off to the side of the boat you’re looking. He tells us his favorite starting range, and scenarios where you might want to scan further or closer. He also gives us a stellar explanation of how side-scanning sonar is working to produce those detailed pictures of the underwater world.
