Fishing is a beautiful pastime. It requires great patience as you drop anchor in a lake and set out your anglers waiting for the fish to come and have a bite.
Would you like a device that can actually show you where there are much fish? You would be able to make a decent catch from such an area.
In fact, I can vouch for such Raymarine Dragonfly 4 Pro device as I own one.
It is in many ways similar to the GPS instruments you find in cars directing you through the inner lanes of any city. My Raymarine Dragonfly 4 Pro sonar can actually show me where there are shoals of fish.
Ever since I attached this device to my boat, I have been able to treble my catch every day. I do not have to wait for hours for the fish to come to me. I rather prefer going to them. Let me explain to you the benefits of using the product.
Raymarine Dragonfly 4 Pro View of the Water:
Usually, when you go fishing, you would not be able to see the fish. This product enables you to locate where there is more fish. Using this product enables you to have a clear view of the water as well as the underwater objects.
Raymarine Dragonfly 4 Pro comes with a high-quality LCD screen that looks great from whichever angle you look at it. This product makes use of sonar frequencies to locate underwater objects and beams pictures of them on your screen.
The significance of the Dragonfly sonar technology:
This product uses the wide spectrum CHIRP technology allowing for transmission of more sonar signals into the water. This technology enables the Dragonfly sonar to interpret the finer details and transmit the data to your smartphone as well.
You would be able to sense the exact depth of the object based on the data transmitted to the LCD screen. There is an additional sensor enabling you to read as well as judge the temperature of water.
Use of Wi-Fi:
You can make use of the Dragonfly mobile app. The product makes integrated use of Wi-Fi for transmitting the signals to your smartphone or your iPad.
This is particularly useful when there is more than one angler on board the boat. Each of them will receive the action as it unfolds.
Thus, you need not strain your eyes looking into the single LCD screen. You can view the same information on your smartphone as well.
The GPS function works in the same way you see in an automobile. It can show you the contours as its shows you on land.
This can allow the anglers to fish in areas where there are shoals of fish. This GPS function can track the lakes, rivers, as well as oceans.
It can track movements on shallow as well as in deep waters. You would also be able to save your routes on the GPS chart-plotter and transfer the routes and other points via the SD card to other devices as well.
The function also allows the anglers to download the software upgrades from the Raymarine web site directly.
The biggest advantage of this device is the portability. You would be able to carry the device with you wherever you go. You can use it in a medium sized boat, kayak, or even on a big fishing boat as well. The device is easy to dismantle and install.
