Revealing the water’s secrets to help anglers pursue their passion for the sport: it’s what we’ve done since the first fish finder we developed as Techsonic Industries in 1971, and it’s what we’ll always do.
From flashers to LCDs, analog to digital and DualBeam to MEGA Imaging™, the past five decades have seen tremendous change at Humminbird. Starting with best-in-class sonar and depth finders, our innovations have grown to include marine GPS, LakeMaster® cartography, radar and full boat control integration.
In 1934, O.G. Schmidt invented the first gear-driven electric trolling motor in Fargo, North Dakota. The idea took off with anglers looking for more boat control, and Schmidt named the growing company for the land he called home: in the heart of fishing country, on the MINNesota-North DaKOTA border, Minn Kota was born.
Since then, we haven’t stopped evolving and innovating. From foot pedals to composite shafts, and variable speed controls to GPS-controlled trolling motors.
