It is hard to comprehend fishing from a boat without the benefits of a sounder these days. The quality of sounding equipment today is second-to-none and many boaties and kayak 'fishos' spend hours fitting their' hull for optimal sounding. A transducer that might be of interest should you be re-fitting or looking at other options is the HDI 83/200kHz model from Lowrance. At 83 kHz it enables a 52° beam width while at 200 kHz it features a 22° beam width. You will attain a range of up to 300 m (1000 ft) at 83 kHz which has many fihsing trips well and truly covered. Other features include: one internal broadband ceramic, the flexibility to mount the transducer to transom or trolling motor via adapter, flexibility to fit to any hull (suitable for outboards and I/O vessels up to 8 m (25 ft) in length) and the benefit of combining the Lowrance Broadband sounder and HDI™ technology into one transducer. The product is recommended for use with the SonarHub sounder module, Lowrance Elite/Mark HDI fishfinders and Lowrance HDS multifunction displays. If improving on your current sounder set-up is on the menu, then look no further than the Lowrance HDI Skimmer Transducer.
