This is to help users, owners and prospects learn more about Humminbird Side Imaging. Humminbird
brought Side Scan sonar to the recreational fishing industry in 2004 and has become the industry leader
in the technology over the last 5 years. Humminbird Side Imaging is being used from beginners to the
top BASS and FLW Pros and everyone in-between. It's the only sonar to positively identify underwater
structure, fish and any other point of interest. Law Enforcement agencies are using it for Search and
Rescue, Homeland Security and for crime solving. Join us as we have a fun contest to help you become
a better user and learn why it is the hottest technology.
This is not a contest. I am only offering help to understand the Wonderful World of Humminbird Side
Imaging. Please submit your guess to firstname.lastname@example.org. Correct answers will go into a pool and a
name will be drawn for a gift. All other guesses will be included in another pool and a name will be drawn
for another gift. Only good for residents of the USA. This offer is not affiliated in any way, shape or form
with Humminbird or Parent Company Johnson Outdoors. This is for fun only - no cash value for gifts. No
exchange of gifts either.

September Image of the Month:
This image shows a sunken boat in the zoom box. There is a boat ramp
in the lower left-hand side of the image. You can see the boat ramp
concrete is broken up and separating on the bottom. The black or dark
area on the left side is the area of the bank out of the water. You can
clearly see the shore and everything from very shallow (inches of water
out to the deeper water on the right side. There is mainly all rock on the
left side by the brighter or white colored returns and the right side is
dominated by softer bottom like mud or silt (darker colors). There are
scattered brush and a larger hard (rock or concrete) triangular object
that rises from the bottom see the shadow on the right side accross from
the boat ramp. Any of these items location can be easily saved by using
the 4-Way cursor and marking the location by placing the cross hairs and

October Image of the Month:
This image shows a Sunken Barge on the East Bank of the KenLake
Marina on Kentucky Lake. It is near the Murray State Dock. It rises very
close to the surface and could easily hit your trolling motor at the right
water level. I was focused on fishing and reading my electronics when I
seen this image being created by my Humminbird 797c2. When I looked
down you could see the barge below the boat and the trolling motor
narrowly crossing over the top. I had to raise the big motor to clear.
You can see the area is loaded with rubble. Lots of strong returns telling
me the material is very hard, concrete, metal or wood. There is a nice pile
of rubble on the bottom left corner of the image. But there is two
depression on the upper right hand image. This would be an excellent
spot for an ambush spot for shallow water fish will all the cover.
