I'll never have the cash for it, but who knows maybe someday,,, But wouldn't this be awsome on the Wye River to use... You can drive up to your traps and actually see if there's a crab in it or not... Look at the pics... You probably could even tell if there's crabs on the bottom too... For a small amount $2000.00 or more you can have it... 

First picture is of suspended fish... You can actually see there shadows on the bottom,,,

Last but not least... a picture of trees on the bottom of 32 ft of water... This a Humminbird Side Imaging sonar which I have been following in the yahoo ( sideimaging UnOfficial Humminbird Side Imaging Group ). There's plenty more pictures there and it kinda cool.. I'll try to find 1 of the bridge under water...

I've seen their adds for their side scanning sonar. I was impressed as well but wonder how it would work under "real" conditions?

Really,, If it could detail that close to the bottom, I wonder if you could actually see the crabs... I can't imagine how you couldn't see them... Or at least have a good idea if they are there or not..

If the detail is that clear it would be great for finding lost lobster pots! Grin

2K to find a $50.00 pot; sounds reasonable! laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh

Your right, you can see crabs on the bottom with it, that's Wye Maryland passed emergency legislation to make them illegal for recreational use!  wink3 Grin

they do work as good as they look my buddy mike had one on his mako and that thing was just awesome. what you see on the pics is what is there, we used it in 325ft of water out at the tip of the baltimore canyon. i was blown away by the resolution and quality of the picture and his even gave you a printout of the bottom, quite a must have for any serious offshore fisherman.

yeah and it says transducer not included, for 2 grand it should Grin But you have to buy it separately since there is a variations of types IE; thru hull, transom mount. Definitly cool though, and yesI wish I had the bucks too for one. Grin

OH looks like only one is needed and does the job of several. Picks up images from down and side and corralates both into a 3d image
