Our good friend Chris Meyer shows us some very helpful features of Lowrance StructureScan.
Using the new Lowrance HDS Touch with the camera connected we were able to clearly see an old pickup that appears to have been down there for quite a while.
http://www.reefari.com This fishing and jigging video shows Knife jigs are great for targetting deep water pelagic fish, It’s a tactic we’ll use when the Spanish Mackerel are holding deep below the trolled lures. Quite often you’ll see a school of fish and generally the larger mackerel, etc aren’t far away, Drift the school and structure with knife jigs can be a game changer and put some runs on the board. That’s what we did in this video and scored some nice Spanish for the effort, or else we wouldn’t have caught anything. Just drop your jig to the bottom and high speed retrieve, Mackerel just love a fast retrieve and will quickly home in on your lure if in the area. This jigging technique is also great on other species such as Yellowtail Kingfish and Samson fish.
The jigs are Reidy’s Heavy duty knife jigs, with a great variety of sizes. The only thing I would recommend is putting wire assist hook rigs on to prevent bite off by Spanish mackerel’s sharp teeth.
To get into some of the best Spanish Mackerel and Reef fishing on the Great Barrier Reef, make sure you check out our long range Mothershipping charters to some remote untouched fishing some 200 kilometres or more offshore, It just doesn’t get any better.

More Information on Furuno FCV295 Fishfinder:
The Furuno FCV295 Fishfinder is a new color digital sounder designed for a variety of professional fishing operations. It features a bonded ‘fogging-free’ 10.4″ LCD display providing superior viewing even in direct sunlight. You can display echoes in 8, 16, or 64 colors, with color assignment dependent on the strength of the returned echo. Clearly, the Furuno FCV295 Fishfinder is ahead of the class in Fishfinders.
The Furuno FCV295 Fishfinder Free Synthesizer (FFS) Transceiver allows a wide selection of operating frequencies. You may choose any two frequencies between 28 and 200 kHz to fit your fishing operation. Furuno FCV295 Fishfinder Output power is selectable from 1, 2 or 3 kW. A wide variety of display modes and functions are available for the Furuno FCV295 Fishfinder, which provide skippers with simple and intuitive information
Welcome To Puget Sound Instrument, Experts in Marine Electronics since 1965 and Hailing from Seattle/Tacoma.
The FE700 is a result of over 50 years of Furuno’s vast range of experience and advanced microelectronics technology fields in developing echo sounders, sonars, and underwater application equipment and systems. This echo sounder is a breakthrough over the conventional paper eating sounders; there are no consumable items. The purpose of the echo sounder is to provide safe navigation by detecting the clearance below the ship (particularly in shallow waters) as required on the solas Convention ships by the new IMO standards.
The basic system consists of a display unit, a distribution box, a matching box, and a transducer.
The 6.5 inch high-brightness TFT color LCD display offers an easy-to-read depth sounding in various modes, permitting optimum representation with respect to the environment.
Detection range is automatically varied but there is manual override to select the required scale. The displayed record is visible for 15 min on any range and an instantaneous sounding is directly shown in large numerals in addition to the graphical display. Depths, associated time, and position are stored for 24 hours in memory. The data can be played back at any time.
Visual and audible alarms are generated when the water depth below transducer is shallower than a user-preset depth. When the seabed is lost because of the lowered detection or out of range setting, the alarm comes on. The receiver sensitivity is automatically controlled with the tracking depth; manual override is possible to improve the detection and to reduce the surface clutter.
The transducer is available in 200 kHz or 50 kHz. The 200 kHz system is advantageous in rough weather or congested waterways in shallow waters whereas the 50 kHz system is recommended for deeper range operation. Depth data can be output in IEC 61162 format to radar, ECDIS, Voyage Data Recorder, and other radio communication and navigation equipment. Optional software is available to transfer the sounding data to a personal computer.
NavNet TZtouch TZT14 and TZT9 Delivers A Huge Step Forward In Touch Screen Technology
Today’s NavNet has come a long way from the first multi-function display. Take one look and you will see just how far. A generous 9″ or 14.1″ display with edge-to-edge glass makes for a clean and stylish installation. The LED backlighting pushes light through every pixel on the screen for remarkable brightness. Anti-reflective glass coating is visible under any lighting condition. Configure the displays with a wide variety of sensors to build a navigation suite that meets your individual requirements.
Pinch To Zoom
Be more hands-on with our easy-to-understand touch screen interface. TZtouch brings you pinch-to-zoom capability, as well as other multi touch gestures for the most intuitive navigation experience. You’ll have full control of each component connected to the network right at your fingertips. Navigation is simplified by using your fingers to zoom and pan around the chart. As soon as your fingers touch the display, taps, pinches and swipes are instantly transformed into action. You will learn your controls so quickly that you’ll be up and running in no time. To make operation even easier while underway, adjustments such as range and gain are easily made from either the on-screen touch menu or our patented RotoKey™.
NavNet’s revolutionary RotoKey™ now merges the power and versatility of touch screen control with an easy-to-use rotary knob. One turn of the RotoKey™ gives you instant access to full control of NavNet TZtouch.
Multi Touch Control
Furuno elevates marine touch screen technology to an entirely new level with the industry’s first multi touch MFD. The use of multi touch technology opens the door to a wide variety of gesture-based commands. NavNet TZtouch’s waterproof display is also ruggedized to perform perfectly in wet, harsh conditions.
Nothing Is Faster Than TimeZero
NavNet TZtouch’s TimeZero™ technology delivers chart processing like you’ve never seen before — seamless chart handling, zooming and panning without the screen disappearing. TimeZero™ technology redefines the meaning of stress-free operation by smoothing out your chart handling actions.
Equipped with powerful TimeZero™ technology, NavNet TZtouch will completely transform the way you navigate. You can scroll, pan, zoom in/out with a smooth, fast and seamless graphics engine. Navigating in a fully 3D environment offers you a true perspective and wider area of view around the ship, which allows you to better plan your routes, while TimeZero technology updates the information on your screen with virtually no redraw.
NavNet TZtouch is the only chart plotter on the market that provides users the ability to choose from official NOAA raster and vector charts, or optional “C-Map by Jeppesen” and “Datacore by Navionics” vector cartography, etc. Fully integrating a cutting-edge data algorithm with a high-resolution image processing technique, MapMedia delivers digital navigation charts and satellite photography with absolute clarity. MapMedia vector and raster charts are built upon 3D architecture, which is smoothly integrated with NavNet’s TimeZero™ technology.
You can load any two ultra-wide high-resolution satellite photo areas at your convenience. Land areas (zero depth) are completely opaque, so these areas are displayed as high-resolution satellite photos on the chart. As the depth increases, the satellite photography becomes more transparent. This allows you to see where the shallows end and the deeper water begins, while still allowing the raster or vector chart to be visible.
Ultra High Definition (UHD™) Digital Radar
The new Lowrance HDS Gen 2 is the next generation of HDS GPs chart plotter sounders. Here i take it for a spin around my home waters at Port Nelson. Most videos are filmed in fresh water, this is all filmed in salt water. I use the HDS unit along with Structure Scan, Side Scan Sonar function for most of my fishing and have found it second to none for targeting those big fish.
