Details

With support for standard narrowband and high performance broadband transducers, CHIRP technology, and 1kW/3kW transmit power for a 3,000m (10,000ft) effective range, the BSM-3 is Simrad Yachting's top echosounder for deep-water professional and sport fishers.

The Simrad BSM-3 works with a broad range of Airmar transducers, including its latest wide-angle CHIRP series. These transducers provide a distinct advantage over traditional narrower beam angles when looking for targets in the upper water column - making the new transducers a perfect fit for targeting pelagic species. With a wider coverage area fish targets are easier to see, appearing larger and more distinct than ever before. Wide beam transducers also search a larger section of the bottom, making it easier to find structures and track the seafloor.

Combine any Ultra Low/Low frequency CHIRP transducer with any Medium or High frequency transducer, to best mark the species you're targeting and the typical depths you're fishing in. The wide range of compatible transducers means you can customize the frequency ranges, output power, and mounting style for any sportfishing application.

With the ability to use up to an 8X scroll speed, BSM-3 presents larger fish targets than competing echosounders. Combined with the Simrad BSM-3's industry leading target separation and clarity, the BSM-3 offers a critical advantage when deep-water fishing.

The BSM-3 has a rugged die-cast aluminium housing, with IPX6-waterproof access cover for transducer wiring. Waterproof cable glands are included for use with bare-wire transducers, but new factory-fitted external connectors mean that with Airmar's latest range of transducers, installation is as simple as plugging in a cable - no need to open the access cover at all.

The BSM-3 is optimised for the Simrad HEROiC user interface, and is fully compatible with Simrad Yachting's range of multifunction displays*. With the HEROiC interface, you can immediately see how your adjustments will affect the sonar image. Find the best settings for your sportfishing needs, faster and easier than ever before.

* The BSM-3 is compatible with Simrad NSS, NSS evo2, NSE, NSO, and NSO evo2 series, with latest software updates installed. Some UI features unavailable on NSE and NSO Offshore models.

Features:

  • Dual Channel CHIRP with Ultra-Low, Low, Medium, or High Frequencies to suit your style of fishing and the species you target
  • Compatible with Wide Angle Transducers, with wider cone-angles for greater coverage of the water column

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

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.
