Bassmaster Classic champion Ott Defoe was in Gadsden, AL to share his knowledge of marine electronics technologies like side imaging & 360 imaging. Ott Defoe uses the Humminbird Helix 12 CHIRP G3 Sonar with MEGA down imaging, MEGA side imaging and Humminbird Ultrex Trolling Motor 360 MEGA Imaging, and the settings and 360 imaging information will be most beneficial to Humminbird users. If you're a Lowrance or Garmin owner,  Ott still has some tips, especially for understanding side imaging that will help you locate and catch bass with your sonar electronics. This 47-minute bass fishing instructional class seminar video is a great way to fine-tune your understanding how to get the most out of your sonar electronics units. Learn where to mount your transducers, see examples of what cover & fish look like on side imaging & 360 imaging, Ott Defoe's settings for both technologies and more!
