The other thing that was really noticeable, and I didn’t understand this until physics in college, was the angle in which the motor head was placed at actually was the main reason the torque of the motor was so little
efore there was 360-Imaging, there was, in 1976, 360-imaging. Believe it or not. Ad is wasn’t from Humminbird but Flip Tail Lures
Then about three years ago, 360 imaging by Humminbird and forward-facing, real-time sonar by Garmin rocked the fishing world, and the talk of banning this technology has hit new heights.
“The correct procedure is to line up two objects in the same direction from the spot you’re at on the lake. Then line up two other objects either to the right or the left of you, but never behind you…Locate these objects on your map and draw two straight lines from them to your position until the lines CROSS each other.

But, nearly 10 years later the paper graph would again be on the chopping block – not because of some crazed politician, though.
This unit could be connected to any brand of depthfinder and would then “announce the depth at regular intervals.”
Indeed, as a February 1991 Bassmaster article by Matt Vincent pointed out, “the long-awaited Global Positioning System (GPS)….(is) expected to become fully operational this year…”
Designing the Pro-Guide was one of the coolest things I have ever done. That it did not sell was basically a matter of overpricing.
