Test.
The first tests carried out when fishing from the shore. The sensor is moved to the water or with a rod (kolkhozing Style) or abandoned.


The wire immediately sinks, twisting and pulling the sensor towards the shore.

And every little bit serious fish passes this strange construction ...

At that time I was trying to catch an artificial moth with aliexpress. And even though it smelled delicious, the performance was degradingly small. Classic maggot is better.

The only catch is the indefinite species of harophytes.

In another location

Fish dream ... cat

Still, the issue of using a wired echo sounder withleave the coast open. Too little time spent studying the issue. It can be used with floats, but in a stationary, top-fed place, or from a pier.
Zaprygivaem in the boat (folk punt) and go plowing back streets of old ladies.

We uncover the echo sounder. And lo and behold! It is quite another matter. You can clearly see the fish, the bottom relief.

And finally, an example of a good catch next to the echo sounder.

Findings. The device is interesting and useful. And in terms of the study of the reservoir, and in terms of assessing the fish resource. When using from a boat or from ice, I give a rating of 5 out of 5. From the shore, it is better to use wireless.
Thank you for your attention and good catches!
