The Kestrel Elite Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics takes the guesswork
out of long-range shooting, even out to the transonic and subsonic flight
range of your bullet.

This next-generation integrated weather meter and ballistics solver provides
the same trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability as the original
Kestrel 4500 with Applied Ballistics but adds many new features and options.
If you're familiar with the Kestrel 4500, the first thing you'll notice is
the larger, higher-resolution and contrast display and improved font
readability. The Kestrel 5 series also includes a built-in dual color
backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation and
offers Link IOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support.
Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel Elite is drop-proof, dust-proof,
waterproof and able to withstand harsh environments without damage - so it
can accompany you to the range, hunt, match, deployment or engagement for
years to come. A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take
your Kestrel meter with you.

With the Kestrel Elite/Link you get the power of the free Kestrel Link
Ballastics app. Build and manage your gun/bullet profiles and download them
to your Kestrel Elite before you set out. Choose from the extensive Litz
library of custom bullet drag models for the most precise trans-sonic and
sub-sonic range solutions available anywhere. At the range or match, secure
your Kestrel Elite to a tripod using the optional Kestrel Vane Mount and use
the app to quickly adjust the target range and view the shooting solution
and wind rose without leaving your shooting position. The LiNK Ballistics
app even lets you set up multiple targets for single-screen viewing - just
about an unfair advantage! It's like having a meteorologist and ballistician
standing next to you while you shoot.

Link enabled units can also be wirelessly paired with LiNK compatible laser
range finders, such as the Bushnell Elite 1 Mile CONX, to seamlessly
integrate target data into the ballistic solution for unparalleled speed and
accuracy.

In addition to the ballistics solver capabilities, the Kestrel Elite is a
comprehensive weather meter for measurement and logging of primary
environmental conditions: wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity,
heat index, pressure and altitude. Paired with the Vane Mount, the Kestrel
Elite becomes a compact, easily-deployable weather station. Your data log
can be transferred to a mobile device wirelessly with the LiNK wireless
communication option and Kestrel LiNK app, or to a PC/MAC with either the
wireless USB Kestrel LiNK Dongle or waterproof USB Data Transfer Cable
(available separately).

Kestrel Link Ballistics for mobile
Android and iOS (coming soon) apps for gun profile management and target
engagement. Use your mobile device to quickly adjust target distance and
view shooting solution without leaving your shooting position.

Kestrel LiNK for mobile
Android (coming soon) and iOS apps put environmental information at your
fingertips with real-time remote data viewing on phones and tablets up to
100' away. Kestrel LiNK also provides easy data export, threshold alerts and
simple firmware updates.

LiNK wireless connectivity powered by Bluetooth Smart
Robust, easy connectivity to both iOS and Android mobile devices as well as
Windows and Mac computers. (Computers require optional Kestrel USB Dongle.)

USB Data Transfer Cable
Low profile, lightweight, waterproof cable provides wired connectivity to
Windows and Mac computers for fast data uploads and firmware updates.
Compatible with every model in the Kestrel 5 Series.

Sleek, rugged tripod vane mount
Small, secure, robust vane mount turns any Kestrel 5 Series meter into a
portable weather station that remains oriented into the wind. (Included in
some models where noted, otherwise sold as optional accessory.)

Large, high contrast screen
Easily readable text in almost any setting, including bright sunlight, with
more visible information on the screen at all times. This high-resolution
display is easy on the eyes, allowing you to get more information from
customizable user screens, charting and graphing options without causing eye
strain or fatigue.

Dual color backlight
Toggle backlight color between standard white and night-vision-preserving
red (NV). The red NV backlight features an optical wavelength selected to
help users sustain natural night vision and reduced brightness to avoid
detection during night maneuvers.

Secure battery door
Large, O-ring sealed door provides easy, tool-free battery access.

Scratch and breakage-resistant window
Rigid, polycarbonate lens with scratch-coating protects the display from
damage.

Corrosion-resistant battery compartment
Battery is isolated from electronics, reducing damage in the event of a
battery leak. (Note - Lithium AA batteries strongly recommended to avoid
battery leakage altogether.)

Intuitive user-interface
Icon-based navigation, intuitive keypad, and multiple languages make the
Kestrel a breeze to use.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.

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.
