Abstract:
Where are the fish and how deep are they were unsolved mysteries for bass fishermen prior to the 1950s. Then Carl Lowrance moved bass fishing into the electronic age with the creation of the LO-K-Tor, a portable device that allowed fishermen to see below the surface. The device first appeared in North Carolina in 1961. Gaddis describes its development and subsequent acceptance by sports fishermen.
