How Deeper Premium Works

How Deeper Premium can help you with your fishing. If you don’t own a Deeper Sonar but like the concept of being able to arrive at a lake for the day or a couple of nights, with already having an understanding of the bathymetry of the lake in your pocket, the ability to have studied the lake, measured the number of wraps and worked out a few horizon markers, before you have set foot on the lake.

Some anglers don’t like this and believe it can take the fun out of fishing or even the possibility that watercraft is redundant knowledge. I say that there are many different types of watercraft. The only thing I can see is that it’s taking away the time spent chucking a maker float about for a few hours, maybe a bit excessive, but the point is when you are using your maker float to know what you are looking for and where it is, disturbs the water and feeding fish. Using a Deeper reduces this disturbance and clearly save you time. For the everyday angler, this is a must feature and I don’t believe it takes away any watercraft. For the other anglers who complain about other anglers thrashing the water looking for spots, I’m sure they would be happier and are probably the same people that don’t like people using a Deeper Sonar!

In some respects, watercraft starts at home with studying the weather and whereabouts the wind will be blowing on the water, what effect this has on the carp, which end of the lake they may be in – in a cold easterly, there may be an island they may be sheltered behind and where the winter sunshine may be warming up those corners and bays. All this can be done in the comfort of your home and I personally believe that this is a crucial part of watercraft.

Watercraft at the lake can still be utilized even with the aid of your Fishdeeper Premium account, it’s a simple and extra tool in your armory.

Let me give you an example, October this year, I had 2 social sessions planned on waters that I’ve never seen and were a few 100 miles away. I had no chance of visiting them for a walk around, so I booted up the computer, logged in to my account, and searched for the lake a make sure the global bathymetry icon was on.

With both these maps, you have the opportunity to see the depths of the lake – by clicking on the spot you are interested in and then measuring the distance from the swim to that point on the map. All you have to do is work out the number of wraps needed. I was able to study both lakes before I arrived and worked out which swims would be best also taking weather forecasts into consideration. I did this so I could understand where the carp may be located. A big southerly had been blowing for a good few weeks beforehand, there was every chance of the carp being on the back of the wind unless it dramatically changed a few days before. The features are the same as you get with having your own Deeper Sonar, with the exception of recording your own readings and being able to see the actual makeup of the lake bed e.g. gravel, weed, etc.

This doesn’t mean that when you get to the lake, you don’t use your watercraft knowledge or even spend a couple of hours looking about and watching for the fish. It simply means that when you’re happy you are in the right area, you know what’s in front of you. Armed with this information you can get your baits on the spots with the knowledge that you understand the bathymetry of the water in front of you, without the need to spend an hour with the marker float. Flicking a lead about can be time-consuming and possibly spook the fish out of your swim, but if you know where a gravel bar, hump, the channel may be located and the ability to know the number of wraps will reduce the probability of spooking fish.

I hope this goes to put any doubts to rest over Deeper products.

Until next time

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
