Deeper Pro Plus – Update

I have now been using this for just over the weekend and it’s pretty amazing bit of kit and will aid anyone’s fishing.  I have purely been using it as a mapping tool and depth finder at the moment.  The weather has not been helpful on this front.  Way to much rain for me to stand out in.  I’m not that crazy anymore!

This image picked up a lovely slope, with a couple of nice edges where fish would patrol along.  A perfect spot for a bait.

This screen shot has picked out a couple of depressions in the lake.  Another perfect spot and unless you were extremely luckily, you would never find them with a marker float set up.

This final screen shot depicts a steady incline from 11ft up to 9.4ft, again is another likely area that fish would patrol along.

I have been casting the Deeper out and once I found the perfect spot, I flicked the marker out and retrieved the Deeper.  I then cast a lead to the spot and clipped up, as I clearly don’t want to hit the Deeper with a lead!  This is also a good way to get accurate baiting up with the Catapult or spomb.

I have also started to map out the lake a bit and play around with the online map feature. (I need more work on this part)

Some of you will say it’s cheating but I say it’s embracing modern technology.  All people do in one shape or form e.g cars, phone, camera’s, t.v’s etc, so why not fishing tackle?  If angler’s in the past not done this, we would still be using Heron buzzers and Argos chairs.  With the modern day pace of live, this gadget will safe you time and put more fish on the bank, that’s got to be a plus on my book.


Hope this is a help





About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
