Ok, serious question

It said the sonar sends out waves that pick up on the air bladders in fish thus marking fish on your screen. I can believe that. Then it says the fish can actually feel those waves...Is this true?? Wouldn't that spook the fish? This is the first time I have heard anything like that so I thought I would come to the best forum to get the right answer.

You did not upset me at all and you should not be embarressed about your post. What you said is a valid point and is part of what I was talking about. We as humans are completely different then fish (bass or any other) and that is why I can not understand why we assume something is in pain or not in pain. That is why I would like to see the scientific proof on the subject. I do a ton of fishing and I am FAIRLY sure a fish doesn't like a hook in its lip but it is not going to kill them (usually). But if we are making the fish sick or putting them in pain by using the electronics then I would not use mine. I catch plenty of bass without my the electronics on.

But here it is in a nutshell.
Compressional waves: can be heard, felt but not seen, they compress the media they travel through in distinct patterns where some waves are compressed and some are spread out. Humans hear this through the constantly vibrating eardrum and other vibrating instruments in the ear.
Transverse waves: can only be seen, They are one wave with the same pattern all the way through,
They are either reflected or absorbed. The sonar wave is a transverse wave which is invisible and it gets reflected. But it does not displace any media or material in which it travels through which means it it can not be felt by a bass's lateral line and also cannot be heard or felt by any living being. This states with simple science that a bass cannot hear or feel a sonar wave which in return means that it cannot spook the fish. thank you

First of all I think the fish know that we are there. I think the sonar click,click,click,click alerts them to that fact. Turn on your depth finder in the garage and put your hand on the transducer puck. Feel anything? Hear anything? I think the fish do also.
