Details

The optional Vaisala Bird Spike Kit for WXT and WMT transmitters is designed to reduce the interference that birds cause to the wind and rain measurement. The kit consists of a metallic band with spikes pointing upward. The kit is installed on top of the transmitter and attached with a screw. The shape and location of the spikes has been designed so that the interference with wind and rain measurement is minimal.

The spikes are designed not to hurt the birds; they are simply a barrier to make it more difficult for birds to land on top of the transmitter. Note that the Vaisala bird spike kit does not provide complete protection against birds, but it does render the transmitter unsuitable for roosting and nest building.

Vaisala WXT520: Weather station designed with monitoring systems in mind

The world’s weather is full of surprises. That makes a quality weather station a valuable piece of technology for monitoring systems. Vaisala's WXT520 multiparameter weather station is built with monitoring systems in mind. It monitors six weather parameters in real time, so users have the numbers on an unexpected rain storm or turbulent wind event. It can be a means of understanding weather events that caused a flush of nitrogen into a river or low water levels in a lake.  What’s more, with the help of a data logger and telemetry system, it can deliver that information to one’s desk so she can stay dry and keep an eye on the data during a storm. Three core components make up Vaisala’s WXT520 weather station.

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.
