Check it out – info from here:
> No two technologies have done more to transform fishing than Humminbird MEGA Live Imaging and Minn Kota Spot-Lock. But only one of these difference-making features could be used at a given time. Not anymore. With the MEGA Live Imaging TargetLock accessory, the MEGA Live transducer beam can be steered independently of the trolling motor – from the foot pedal, the fish finder, or optional hand remote.
A couple of quickie things reeeeally stood out to me after running forward-facing sonar the last few seasons:
> Control both your trolling motor and the MEGA Live transducer at the same time using the foot pedal of your i-Pilot Link Ultrex.
> The TargetLock feature allows anglers to lock the MEGA Live beam in the direction of structure, so even when the boat moves, the MEGA Live view stays fixed in that direction.
If you’ve ever fished with forward-facing sonar, you know the biggest debate (and probably toughest thing to figure out for your style of fishing) is whether you should have the transducer mounted on the trolling motor or on a separate pole. No right answer because both shine in many different scenarios.
So the fact that this new technology lets you essentially get all the pros and none of the cons of the two very different styles = big news for diehard fish-heads…if you’re willing to fork over the dough.
Side note: I’ll now be mowing lawns and shoveling driveways until I save up enough coin to invest in one lol.
