ORLANDO, Fla. – Humminbird MEGA Live® Imaging TargetLock™ received the Best in Category Award for Electronics at the ICAST 2022 New Product Showcase in Orlando, Florida, as voted on by attending fishing media and retailers.
With the introduction of the all-new MEGA Live Imaging TargetLock, anglers no longer need to choose between MEGA Live Imaging and Minn Kota Spot-Lock, making it easier to stay on and catch more fish. The new product, used in conjunction with the legendary Minn Kota Ultrex trolling motor and Humminbird MEGA Live Imaging, enables an impressive suite of features including full trolling motor control while independently steering the MEGA Live transducer and locking onto fish-holding structure or waypoints, regardless of boat positioning or movement.
“Last year we introduced Humminbird MEGA Live and immediately went to work eliminating the need for anglers to choose between Minn Kota Spot-Lock or utilizing their MEGA Live Imaging transducer,” said Humminbird Brand Manager Matt Cook. “With TargetLock, anglers can now get the most of the technology by having the ability to use them both simultaneously without sacrificing efficiency on the water. It is rewarding to be recognized by the voters and the industry for TargetLock and we look forward to more and more anglers making the most of their Minn Kota and Humminbird technologies on the water.”
