Modern recreational anglers are blessed with abundant electronic resources for locating and catching fish, including high-resolution sonar, GPS chartplotters, hyper-accurate digital depth maps, integrated boat control systems, and underwater cameras…whew. However, many of the advantages provided by these tools remain untapped, as many anglers are unwilling to divert their limited fishing time into learning the intricacies of fishing technology.
But a new educational video series seeks to overcome this barrier by demonstrating how modern technology can be successfully applied to real, multi-species fishing situations. The first entry in this series, The Technological Angler, Volume 1: Success with Side Imaging, was just released by The Technological Angler’s founder, Dr. Jason Halfen.
“Side Imaging from Humminbird is the most important fish- and structure-locating resource I have in my boat,” Dr. Halfen explains. “While guiding and competing in walleye tournaments across the Midwest over the past decade, the power of Side Imaging has helped me to cash tournament checks and to teach numerous clients how to use advanced sonar technologies to find and catch more and bigger fish. I wanted to share those experiences with a larger audience, and therefore produced The Technological Angler, Volume 1: Success with Side Imaging.”
With nearly 20 years of University-level teaching experience, Dr. Halfen developed The Technological Angler, Volume 1: Success with Side Imaging to be the most effective and informative sonar teaching tool available on the market.
Rather than an exhaustive video analysis of the fish finder’s operation manual, The Technological Angler, Volume 1: Success with Side Imaging focuses solely on Side Imaging sonar with laser-like precision, training the viewer to interpret and optimize Side Imaging sonar in a wide variety of situations, and to use information harvested from Side Imaging to make informed fishing decisions.
