Furuno Black Box Network Fishfinder

The Black Box Network Fishfinder is a network fish finder for NavNet 3D and NavNet TZtouch that features an updated bottom discrimination function, as well as the FDF (Furuno Digital Filter) capability of the DFF1. The Black Box Network Fishfinder determines the bottom structure and separates them into the following categories: mud, sand, gravel, and rock. This is achieved by analyzing echo characteristics from the bottom components such as particle size and hardness.

Connect the Black Box Network Fishfinder to your NavNet 3D or NavNet TZtouch network and get ready for your NavNet system to provide you with valuable information to locate rich fishing grounds, boosting your catch.

There are two bottom discrimination display modes to select from, Standard Mode and Probability Mode. In Standard Mode, the most probable materials on the bottom (mud, sand, gravel or rock) are indicated in either graphic mode or a 4-color bar on the bottom of the display.

Because bottom material can change frequently and can sometimes be difficult to identify, Probability Mode shows you what material the bottom has the greatest chance of consisting of by displaying the possible bottom materials proportionally within the 4-color bar.

Standard Features

  • Frequency: 50/200 kHz alternately transmitted
  • Output Power: 600 W/1 kW
  • Power Supply: 12-24 VDC: 1.1-0.4 A (in output power of 1 kW)
  • Temperature : -15° to +55° C (in operation)
  • Relative Humidity: 93% at 40°C
  • Waterproofing: IP20 (not waterproofed)



Required Conditions for Bottom Discrimination

  • Detection Range: 5-100M
  • Boat Speed: 0-10 kn
  • Transducer mounting: Thru-hull or transom mount only
  • MFD8/12/BB software: v2.06 or later



Notes:

  • The result shown by this function may sometimes be different from the actual bottom components.
  • For best performance, do not use in-hull mounted transducers with the BBDS1.
  • The BBDS1 may show an incorrect ground discrimination result, especially when there is a big fish school right under the boat. This is because enough echoes may not be received from the bottom.
  • Materials such as shell, coral, or a sunken ship are indicated as the most similar material from the four bottom categories:mud, sand, gravel, or rock, according to reflected echoes.
  • Auto mode is automatically activated when the bottom discrimination function is turned on. (Manual mode is not selectable.)
  • The BBDS1 is not compatible with NavNet 1 or NavNet vx2.
  • Appropriate Furuno Transducer recommended for best results

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
