450H Hull mount system includes hull mount towfish with cable, mounting bracket, topside controller box, AC adapter & StarFish Scanline software.
StarFish 450H is an affordable, high-performance hull-mounted side scan sonar that produces spectacular images of the seabed. The compact, slim-line sonar design, combined with a flexible mounting bracket, helps ensure correct positioning and high quality imagery on any vessel.
Utilizing advanced digital CHIRP acoustic technology developed from the professional underwater survey industry, StarFish 450H can view targets at longer ranges without any loss in image quality. It competes with many larger commercial systems, yet the intuitive software makes it very easy to use.
The StarFish 450 Series is designed to be 'Plug and Play', connecting to any Windows PC or laptop via USB connection. Simple, one-time installation to the boat's PC allows the user to capture real-time digital images of the seabed quickly and easily. Since the 450H sonar is fixed to the boat, it's accessible all the time, allowing the user to monitor the seabed for interesting targets during any journey. With hull-mounted systems, there is no need to worry about snagging a towing cable when surveying in shallow water or high traffic areas.

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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
