5 Ways the DEEPER Pro+ will improve your fishing

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR DEEPER AND PUT MORE FISH ON THE BANK!

Deeper castable sonar devices are being added to the armoury of many anglers in the UK who can see the benefits of knowing exactly what is in front of them, but without the need to use the traditional method of a marker float and plenty of spare time spent plumbing!

The Pro+ is the most advanced in the range and offers many of the features that are found on a full-size echo sounder – but without the need to go afloat in a boat in order to use it, as all you need to do is download the Deeper app, connect the Deeper unit to your mobile phone, and then cast it out into the lake or river.

It has a range of 100m, and not only will it show you the underwater topography in front of you, but due to the built-in GPS it also allows you to map the whole area and build up a detailed bathymetric, contour map of the lake, which is stored for future use. It does of course also act as a fishfinder, and although most anglers will predominantly use it for feature finding, there are situations where that could prove to be very useful.

Monster Carp star, Ali Hamidi, has been a big fan of the Deeper ever since it first came out and has incorporated it into much of his fishing, and here he explains exactly why it will help you to put more fish on the bank

WHAT LIES BENEATH
“Carp fishing is full of myths, and there are no better ones than some of the spots that are described to you on certain lakes. You’ll be told that there is a savage bar or a big trough, but if you put a Deeper out you’ll find out for sure exactly what is out there and can adjust your set-up accordingly, pick your spots more efficiently, and instantly you are fishing more effectively.”

TECHNOLOGY OR TRADITION?
“There are still a lot of purists out there who think people are suddenly going to have a load of fish sitting in their landing net as a result of using one of these, or it is cheating. But it is anything but cheating because it is making me a better angler as I’m able to see what I’m fishing over and then I’ll explore the area with a lead or marker float if I feel that I need to. It’s all about gaining more fishing time and fishing more effectively.”

GETTING ZIGGY WITH IT
“You all know how much I love using zigs, and the Deeper makes that even more effective. If you’re fishing a new venue, rather than putting a marker float out, a couple of casts with the Deeper will tell you exactly how deep it is, and you can get your zigs out there at the correct depth straightaway.”

LOCATING ‘HOT’ SPOTS
When I took part in the Underwater films I realised just how important water temperature is, and those during those tiny spikes when it was cold you could see the fish moving in and feeding with gusto, even with just a one degree increase. Unless you’ve got a thermometer you won’t see that, but the Deeper also measures the water temperature and allows you to find pockets of slightly warmer water.”


MAPPING MADE EASY
“I used to love nothing more in the winter months than walking around a new lake with my notepad and marker rod, casting around in different swims, to try and get a picture of where I’d be fishing when it warmed up. That is all out of the window now though, as the Deeper Pro+ has a GPS mapping mode and in just a few hours you can learn what would have taken days with a marker rod. If you really want to, you can even share all this information with your friends on Lakebook.”
