Garmin echo Gets Tested at Lake Amistad
We had the good fortune of joining our buddy Wade Middleton last week on Lake Amistad, a gin-clear lake that straddles the U.S.-Mexican border. It's known as a big-time bass fishery with water both deep and shallow, and bottoms that can be hard limestone or softer sand — ideal for testing our new line of echo fishfinders.
Installing and mounting the echo 550c onto Wade's trolling motor was easy, thanks to the really slick quick-release tilt and swivel mount. This new mounting system is going to make removing and reinstalling marine electronics much easier, with less stress on cables and connectors.
Once we put Wade's Ranger on the water, we found the new echo to show an amazingly high-definitition and noise-free display, thanks to the new HD-ID technology. It was easily viewed in bright sunlight, and you could very easily make out fish arches, bait balls, and bottom structure. And the echo's Smooth Scaling was just plain slick — no more jagged transitions when the unit switches from one depth range to another.
Priced from $79.99 to $449.99, there's an echo for every angler and every skill level. They're just hitting stores now, so go check them out!
