I’m Russell Townsend or Rusty as most people know me.  I run Rusty’s Barra Charters at Lake Monduran north of Brisbane.  I’ve fished these waters for the past 11 years. The One Boat network allows me to link my 3 Solix 12 Gen 2 units, Mega 360 and the Terrova I-Pilot.  I run the 360 on my front and back sounders and side imaging and maps on my console unit.  This setup allows me to find the fish with the side imaging, spot lock and use the 360 to pinpoint my casting at the fish.  Results speak for themselves with over 800 fish tagged in the last 2 years. Having used other brands of sounders and electric motors over the years, there is nothing that comes close to the quality of picture and reliability of Humminbird and Minn Kota in my option.
