In the morning, I had a fish finder on my kayak. In the afternoon, I ditched it and just went fishing. This was the second fish of the afternoon. For various reasons, I haven't used a fish finder since.
Generally, I prefer informative or "how to" writing, but I really enjoyed writing this subjective piece. In it, I tried to emphasize that by no means I am suggesting that electronics aren't valuable fishing tools. However, I think they become a crutch at times, and even a hindrance, depending on where you fish, your strengths and style of fishing, and numerous other factors. Additionally, as I noted earlier on Facebook, I give serious props to the guys who regularly crush it fishing almost entirely based on electronics (Eric "Slappy" Harrison immediately comes to mind). So, please consider this a food for thought piece and keep an open mind. I hope you enjoy it! Tight lines!
