Why do I need a sonar & how do they work?

Whether you're fishing in freshwater or saltwater, sonar is an essential tool to seeing what is happening below the water. Using sonar helps you to identify and fish in the right spots.

There is a wide choice of sonar options. In this video Lowrance break down the differences to help identify which one is best for you and your type of fishing.

By using sonar, you can focus your efforts on areas where you see fish or fish-holding structures. This includes rocks, drop-offs, ditches, trees, logs and more. Without sonar, it is much harder to catch fish since you don’t know where they are or find areas they like to hide.
