Lowrance Announces New HALO20+, HALO20 GFF Staff 11/07/19 04:44 PM

Lowrance Announces New HALO20+, HALO20

The Ultimate Picture from a Smaller Dome

Tulsa, Okla. – Lowrance®, a world-leader in fishing electronics since 1957, announced today the launch of HALO20+ and HALO20 radars – a pair of compact, pulse compression radome units that are perfectly designed for smaller fishing boats.

This new HALO series includes two models that cater to the differing needs of boaters. Both radars provide excellent detection with unrivalled short-range performance, while HALO20+ features the fastest RPM rotation on the market, VelocityTrack™, Dual Range operation and can detect targets from a greater distance than HALO20.

HALO20+ radar delivers a full 360-degree sweep every second, thanks to its industry-first 60 RPM rotation at ranges up to 1.5 nautical miles. These ultra-fast updates give anglers an almost real-time view at close range – offering the ultimate view for collision avoidance of fast-moving targets.

Ideal for a wide range of fishing boats, HALO20+ comes in a compact dome antenna and delivers high-quality short-, mid- and long-range detection. Anglers can monitor two distance ranges at once in Dual Range mode allowing them to keep an eye on distant weather cells, while watching for collision hazards nearby. HALO20+ radar’s pulse compression technology means no compromises in detection at either selected range, while beam sharpening provides enhanced separation between small or distant targets.

With HALO20+, anglers can identify hazards quickly with VelocityTrack Doppler technology, which delivers instant feedback on whether targets are coming toward you or moving away. Simple color coding highlights potential hazards, improving situational awareness and further reducing the risk of a collision. HALO20+ radar automatically checks every target in range, so there’s no need to manually select individual targets, and no limit to the number of targets on screen at one time.

HALO20 is a cost-effective solution for anglers to increase situational awareness and collision avoidance, detecting collision hazards and other targets nearby and up to 24 nautical miles away. With its small footprint and low profile, HALO20 is the perfect radar solution for more budget-conscious buyers with smaller fishing boats.

HALO20 radar also delivers a comprehensive range of features to enhance your situational awareness and on-water safety. Anglers can monitor selected collision hazards with MARPA target tracking, tracking up to 10 targets. Whether navigating through crowded waterways or contending with poor visibility, HALO20 radar cuts through the clutter to give anglers a clear and current picture of their surroundings.

“We are excited to extend the reach of our revolutionary HALO Radar technology to anglers with smaller center-console fishing boats,” said Knut Frostad, CEO, Navico Group. “These new HALO Radars make navigation safer and easier in low-visibility conditions, and have distinct features that cater to fishermen who crave top-end features, as well as those looking for high-performance radar at a more affordable price.”

Both HALO20+ and HALO20 radars offer MARPA Target Tracking, InstantOn™ technology and Harbor, Offshore, Weather, and custom modes that tune the radar’s advanced signal processing to help ensure that targets can be seen vividly – even in the toughest environmental conditions.

HALO20+, priced at $2,199, and HALO20, with a retail price of $1,699, are scheduled to start shipping in December 2019. For more information on HALO20+ and HALO20 radars, visit

Porko's Sunday Afternoon, Nov 10, 2019 Tracker Bob Smith 11/04/19 04:37 PM
The second event of the season is coming up. Hopefully, the weather will hold up and we will get a good turn-out! Just a reminder that the fees are unchanged $20 for the tournament ($15 for the pay back and $5 for Big Bass) and a $10 optional side pot. Three fish limit, 12" minimum, 1 dead fish allowed and Big Bass must be alive, no live bait. You decide if you are a team (as many folks as allowed in the boat) or by yourself, you decide. One entry is three fish. Anyway, most folks reading this have fished my events and would be more than willing to tell you the rules (LOL).

All events are 1PM till 5PM until the daylight savings time shift in March then we finish out at 1PM till 6PM.
All tournaments are held out of Bartow County Gatewood Park: Exit GA-20 exit on I-75 and turn east, Turn south at the light (right from I-75, left from Canton) next to Wendy's onto Spur 20. Go about 2 miles and turn left on Jim Knight Rd., Turn left when it dead ends at the Bartow Beach Rd. (right in front of the COE maintenance yard). Stay on the Beach road and stay to the left past the park Manager's house and follow the signs to the left to the boat ramp

Porko's Sunday Afternoon Nov 3, 2019 Done Bob Smith 11/04/19 01:29 AM
The season opener started out pretty well with 24 paid entries, 47 anglers. The afternoon was chilly with high bluebird skies and 66 degree water. Fishing for most of us, was pretty slow! None-the-less, someone will usually find them or at least a couple of pretty good fish. Today was no exception. The totals were ho hum with 42 fish brought to the scales for a total of 60.02lbs (an average of 1.43lbs per fish)
We paid five places this evening and here are the money winners!
5th went to Chad C. and Drew with 3 fish for 4.32lbs, for $36
4th place was Larry (Big O) and Chris with 3 fish for 4.36lbs for $54
3rd place was Smith and Rice with 3 fish for 4.57lbs for $72
2nd place went to Brett and Mike with 3 fish for 5.76lbs for $90 (sure like that new Pheonix!!)
1st place was Nick and Zack! They knocked it out of the park with 3 fish for 7.40lbs and Big Bass with a 4.26lb LargeJaw! 1st place money was $108, Big Bass was $120 and the side pot was $240, Great Job guys!
This Sunday was probably light due to the number of events on the lake this weekend, Deer hunting, and football. Hopefully we will see more and more of you over the coming weeks!
See you next Sunday!

Propspeed Introduces Foulfree Coating for Transducers GFF Staff 10/31/19 02:55 PM

Propspeed Introduces Foulfree Coating for Transducers

Leader in Underwater Coatings Ensures You’ll Never Clean Your Transducer Again

Auckland, New Zealand – Propspeed, leading innovator of underwater coatings, announced today the introduction of a revolutionary foul-release coating designed specifically for transducers – Foulfree. Designed by industry-leading engineers and designated by Airmar as a certified transducer coating, Foulfree releases marine growth, reducing the maintenance needed to keep transducers clean and streamlining water flow.

Fouling on the face of transducers can reduce their sensitivity, bottom-echo returns and positive fish targets. Transducers also perform best with minimal turbulence over their surface during operation. Foulfree is a specialized foul-release coating that is biocide-free and does not poison marine growth. Once cured, Foulfree forms a super-slippery surface over the transducer, preventing marine growth from attaching to its surface. Offering a long service life – it lasts a minimum of 12 months, with an even longer life span in cooler climates.

“Foulfree is an exciting new coating specifically made to enhance the performance of transducers,” said Chris Baird, CEO, Propspeed. “Bringing together our revolutionary product design and working with the experts in transducer functionality from Airmar, we are able to offer boaters around the world a new solution to an age-old problem and improve sonar performance for anglers and cruisers alike.”

Foulfree joins Propspeed’s award-winning product line which includes Propspeed an industry-leading foul-release system for propellers and running gear and the groundbreaking transparent foul-release coating specifically formulated for underwater lights, Lightspeed.
