Last 2 images are a schooner that sank of kent island in 1912. The one before that is a wheat barge that sank off love point.

It's a Humminbird Solix Gen 1 with the Mega Transducer.

Wow those are great pictures. I have thought about getting a humminbird unit on my next boat to give them a try.

I didn't think the Magothy was deep enough to have something sink and not stick out above water

Thanks guys. Here are some CCA Reefballs inside the Magothy River. Sorry for the repeat content if you are a member of the Side Imaging and Sonar Group facebook.

Its amazing how far "recreational" sonar has evolved over the last several years. I remember my first "state of the art" sounder in the 70's. A 10" square box with an 8" rotary dial showing a solid red line for bottom and broken red lines for targets, depending on how you set the gain.

I bet that wheat barge was what snagged 5 of my 8 lures on the bottom off love point early this trophy season.... i've been wondering what could have done that in a spread that was about 20ft wide on my starboard side!

hummingbird was the first company to come up with side-scan technology. lots of lawsuits the last few years. of course all have it now but i think hummingbirds have the best detail.

Nick has the latest Mega imaging. It is over 1000kHz. The higher the frequency the better the detail. However the lower the frequency the deeper it penetrates. He, Alan Batista, and Walleye Pete all get great images with the Humminbird.

NickBOE How did you know where to find the wreck sites? I have the map that shows general locations but nothing with specific lat/longs. Any recommendations?

I have a side scan on my boat. I never could get my head around what I was looking at. From the picture above and your description, I think you just cleared it up for me. Let me see if i can describe and if its correct...where you labeled "water column" and show the turbulence...so this is a cross section of the water depth you are in? where the picture transitions to hard bottom is the bottom and the "channel" is the water column...??....so its sort of a cross sectional view....

Then the rest of the image is from a "birds eye" view where your showing the reef balls and fish?

So they are looking in different planes? Is this correct?

You got it. I think about it as two separate images, port and starboard. So on the port side you first see the black water column. This is all the water between your boat and the bottom in a cross sectional view. Then starting directly under the boat, and spreading further port you have what is on the bottom. The side imaging cone is shaped like a fan. Very thin, like a copy machine. Humminbird has a great tutorial on their website. I'll try to link it but it might get taken down. https://www.humminbird.com/learn/imaging/side-imaging

When I first using SI I had it on a FW crappie fishing boat.. ( not that it makes diff) Utube had a guy - "Tapout64" (used HB products) that made it so much simpler for me to understand.. check it out, maybe some are still around.. ( he speaks fishing lingo , not hi-tec )

Nick does good also.. but till you grasp concept of what your looking at.. something is just left out! ( Tapout , often ID'ed the likely , fish species on screen-- it helped me)
