The Humminbird 898c HD SI is a powerful unit for power anglers! Featuring a colossal 1000W of power, 4 frequencies that the transducer transmits, there is nothing that this fish finder will not show on the giant, sunlight-readable 7 inch screen! Side-imaging technology shows you what’s going on at both sides of your boat. Looking at the screen, the center line will be your boat, and on either side, the water depth and the bottom. Spot structure and fish like you never could before!

It also features traditional 83/200 SONAR for the more traditional anglers.

Humminbird has done it all with Side Imaging! Side Imaging shoots a razor thin cone of SONAR waves up to 240 feet on each side of your boat, giving you 480 feet of coverage. Side imaging makes it much easier to read your screen – and it’s much less confusing! You can see rocks, sunken objects, schools of fish, and anything else underwater – all clearly and easily!


The built-in Contour XD chart covers the contiguous U.S.A. coastline and inland lakes and rivers. On the coast, this clearly shows features as small as canals, and many coastal navigation lights. Inland, the Contour XD features virtually all recreational lakes and rivers, plus hundreds of thousands of small lakes that don’t appear on other charts. In other words, your lake is likely to be there! Waypoints: 2,750 – Routes: 45 – Tracks: 50 w/ 20,000 points each

My name is Shane Baker and when I am not with my family or working here I am out fishing! I caught my first fish when I was 6 – it was a trout at a stocked pond here in TX. Ever since fishing has been a passion of mine!
