There’s still a cloud of mystique around side imaging for a lot of anglers, so we offer up this easy to digest tutorial on adjusting side imaging range and sonar settings for finding the sweet spots, then zeroing in on the detail to kick off your fishing game. Casey Ehlert of Bass Brawl Outdoors is an electronics super user, but really boils this sophisticated technology down to a few key settings that are easy to replicate on any waters. High definition mapping has changed how we fish, but it still doesn’t provide the ultra detailed bottom composition that fish relate to; side and down imaging are the tools for this, and we’re confident that this video will help you find the fish holding spots you’ve been missing. These practices were key for Lyal Held and Casey in their quest for the new South Dakota state record bass caught in 2016.
