Echo Sounders

Tom and Jerry, Bonny and Clyde, Little and Large...... all partnerships that are associated with each other! Here at Angling Technics we think we can add to that. The GPS and Echo Sounder. Never has there been such a perfect match.

What can be more deadly than using the Echo Sounder to plot the underwater contours, find the ideal location to bait and fish and then use the GPS to mark the’s hardly giving the fish a chance is it!!!

Watch the attached video clip to see how easy the Echo Sounder is to use and hear what top carp angler Max Cottis has to say about it.

Graphic Sonar Receiver

This highly advanced graphic sonar was developed by Fulcrum Designs to compliment the already extensive range of accessories available to owners of Angling Technics bait boats. It incorporates advanced digital signal processing to help differentiate between weed and sand or gravel. The method it uses is quite different to that of the ordinary fish finders.

Bluesounder Echo

Bluesounder      Bluesounder


Bluesounder is a Bluetooth ® BLE linked echo sounder created by Fulcrum Designs specifically for Angling Technics baitboats.

Baitboats ordinarily take baits and line to distant locations with the help of remote echo sounders to find optimum locations.

Existing echo sounders for baitboats rely on custom designed displays to provide visual depiction of the bed of fishing waters.

Bluesounder interprets the existing radio transmissions from these baitboats and passes them to an iPhone, iPod or iPad to display a much more detailed image with choice of colour schemes.

The display can be frozen, swiped back in time so that the last few minutes of depth profile can be reviewed and the units, speed and zoom levels can all be changed to suit the user and conditions.

A radio transmission strength (from the baitboat indicator and Bluesounder battery condition meter are present to provide all the information you need to survey your venue and find that perfect spot.
