VIDEO: Humminbird’s Massive Screens and Map-Making Magic
New HELIX 9 & 10 units offer loads of functionality .. like multiple-unit networking and user-generated mapping via one-of-a-kind AutoChart Live
EUFAULA, AL (January 18, 2016) – Looking back to the release of the HELIX 5 and the ICAST 2015 “Best of Electronics” award-winning HELIX 7, it’s hard to believe that HELIXTM could be made even better …
But talk to anglers across the country and there’s an electricity in the air and on the water. From weekend anglers to pros, seems everybody’s excited about the awesome features found in Humminbird’s new HELIX 9 and HELIX 10 units.
It all starts with industry-best screen brightness and widescreen real estate for easy split-screen viewing of Humminbird technologies in awesome detail, so no piece of cover, interesting contour, or bottom-hugging fish goes unnoticed. Install one of the new units on the bow and you’ll be amazed how easy it is to read all the way for the console!
Plus, HELIX 9 and 10 units are packed with advanced imaging technologies and an Ethernet port for networking HELIX with other Ethernet-capable HELIX, ONIX and core units, as well technologies like Minn Kota® iPilot™ Link and Humminbird 360 Imaging™.
The HELIX 10 SI GPS combo shown in split-screen Side Imaging (l) and Chart view (r).
With regards to mapping, anglers have never had it so good. No matter which HELIX 9 or 10 model you choose, you’ll be identifying fish and fish-holding contours better than ever before via powerful Humminbird SONAR and real-time mapping with AutoChart Live, which allows anglers to make their own maps in real-time, no PC, server or Cloud required. This puts an unrivalled power in your hands to navigate, study and fish both uncharted waters and dial in “spot on the spot” locations on waters that have been mapped.
Plus, dual SD card slots allow anglers to utilize new Humminbird LakeMaster PLUS map cards, which not only provide HD 1-foot contours for many lakes, LakeMaster’s three patented features of Depth Highlight, Shallow Water Highlight and Water Level Offset, but three layers of satellite aerial image overlay! Dual card slots also makes saving screenshots, sonar recordings and nearly limitless waypoints, tracks and routes a breeze.
All HELIX 9 and 10 units include a completely-redesigned cover for protection on and off the water.
Whether you choose a unit from the HELIX 9 or HELIX 10 family, we think you’ll agree … the future of fish-finding never looked brighter!

TBF of South Carolina Teams up with U.S. Marines and Toys for Tots to host their 6th annual “Mr. Lake Murray” Open
Bass Fishing & Toys for Tots
On Saturday, November 14 TBF of South Carolina hosted our 6th annual “Mr. Lake Murray” open bass tournament. This year we decided to do something a little different. We seem to be getting later in the year with this event, closer to the holidays. So this year we teamed up with the U.S. Marines “Toys for Tots” program. Each angler was asked to bring a new unwrapped toy to registration that morning or make a cash donation. Our anglers came through for us showing their generosity. Over $350 was raised along with a good pile of toys. It’s always a great feeling to be able to give something back to our community and be able to show that our organization is about more than just fishing. As far as the fishing, Lake Murray did not disappoint either. The winning team of Neil and Tim Huffstefler brought in a 5 bass limit weighing 22.75 lbs, which included the Big Bass of the tournament at 6.34 lbs. We at TBF of South Carolina look forward to working with our Marines again next year and hope to do more for our armed forces and community in the future.
