We are back from the show! We had a good time at the show and got to introduce a lot of people to the FishSens underwater cameras. I also got to see a lot of friends I don't normally see in the offseason, which is always one of the best parts of the show. A few of them walked away with FishSens SondeCAMs too. I am really looking forward to seeing what kind of footage they record with their new underwater cameras. As a side note though, look for some promo codes in the coming months from us.
I mentioned in my last blog that I was finally going to get out perch fishing. I got out a day or two before the fishing show and although I wasn't expecting much, after about 8 holes I found out one of my areas was holding the mega school. It was ridiculous, especially for an evening bite. My buddy and I both got limits of really nice fish in no time. One of the important things to finding this area was looking at contours. Last year while I was out there with my Humminbird Fishsmart app with the Muskegon Lake map, the area became pretty obvious and was holding some giants. Then the ice went away and I never got to test it's true potential. Mapping on that big water is so critical since you can't just cut ice everywhere. If I am going to go out there and drill 100 holes, the more precise I can make them the better. I'm using my Helix 7 with the Lakemaster chip for mapping out there now, so things are even easier and more convenient.
