Default Drop Shotin' with Humminbird Switchfire Sonar

Here is some images showing how well Humminbird Switchfire 2D Sonar with the 200/83kHz Dual Beam Plus makes following your Drop Shot and finding the fish...Today the fish were bottom hugging but would come up to check out the Drop Shot. My rig consisted of a swivel with a 4" Finesse Worm about 12" below and a 1/8 oz weight a foot lower. You can see the Humminbird tracks the drop shot and locates the fish.

Dropin' on a Bass...



Bass gets all over the bait. You can tell by strength of return he's dead in the middle of the cone angle with Original Color Pallete by the bright red and all over the worm.



Here's where one strikes but a swing and a miss and tghen the fish goes back down.



Bass all over the screen. See how the sneak out of the bottom to come up and check out my bait.



I think I can see this one laughing at my Finesse Worm...Came up checked it out and went back down.



Humminbird Switchfire Max Mode makes it easy to vertical fish with the smallest of lure even in the deepest of depth.
