I would agree with everything mentioned on this thread. However, I fish San Luis Res. quite a bit, for stripers, and the shoreline is relatively clean. For this fishery the side scan works very well, and it has accounted for many fish, over the years.
I have a Bottomline, Fishing Buddy II.
One memorable fish:
I recall creating a rats nest with my running, and while I was positioned near a shallow island, a side-scan image popped up on my screen. Now, I should have finished clearing the mess, but decided to make the cast anyway. Two strips later I was solid to a nice fish! With no way to stop the striper, the rats nest blew off my float tube apron and up through the snake guides. Lucky for me the line fed through the guides and once the fish tired, I was able to clear the running line, and bring the 22 lb. striper to hand.
Yes, it is always "better to be lucky than good".
