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

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.

Size Them Up With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.

In Ontario Lakes, Non-Native Bass Impact Native Fish

It’s no secret that anglers have been the means by which invasive species and non-native fish have spread to new water bodies in the past. Fishermen have even been known to transport some of their favorite fish to new areas on purpose so that they can catch them a little closer to home. And the results of those actions have not always been ideal. In Ontario, Canada, fishermen have taken non-native bass and stocked them into what were historically lakes dominated by brook and cutthroat trout. The actions have impacted ecosystems, but scientists have been unable to broadly study the effects because they didn’t have enough data. But that is no longer the case for some Ontario lakes, as a study from biologists at the University of Toronto shows.
