On Monday I got to spend 90 minutes in the boat with David Fritts, 1993 Bassmaster Classic Champion, 1997 FLW Championship victor, and widely acknowledged crankbait savant. About a decade ago I’d spent a day with him on the Potomac River on a tour practice day, but that day he was focused on finding fish so I really couldn’t pick his brain. This time, it was all about the Q&A.
When I was in law school 25 years ago, I had a 13 inch television in my apartment. If I got home from class and wanted to veg out with a little Beavis and Butthead, I had to look carefully to tell which one was which. If I left the library on Sunday to tune into an NFL game, it was a challenge to read the numbers on the jerseys, at least from across the room.
This week Lowrance announced the introduction of their HDS-16 Carbon graph, which, as the name suggests, will feature a 16-inch display. Even though I’ve always wanted to be an architect, I’ll have to take their word for it when they say that this unit “gives anglers the equivalent of four seven-inch screens on a single display.”
