Advancement in electronics has changed the game

...Jones has been using a Humminbird side viewer for two years now, and has become highly reliant on it.

"In traditional downward-looking sonar, you have to interpret what you see on the screen," Jones said. "But with side imaging, it draws you almost a digital picture of the bottom. It looks on the screen just like it would if you drained the lake and took a black-and-white picture of it. It's really simple to use."

Jones said he still relies on downward-looking sonar about 75 percent of the time.

"I really don't use the side-imaging until I figure out what [kind of structure] I'm looking for," Jones said. "Then I can make one swath through an area that has the potential to hold the fish I'm on, as opposed to just have to idle back and forth, zigzagging. I can see it all at once.

"It just shortens your search so much."
