With out getting too deep into the know-how, Durick’s depth finder, which retails for about $1,seven hundred, provides a financial institution-to-financial institution take a look at the underside of the river, offering as much as four hundred ft of imaging on both aspect of the boat. Launched to the general public in 2017, the Helix 10 G2N’s aspect-imaging know-how permits him to actually “see” the fish within the river’s murky depths.
However he additionally sees much more.
Durick just lately shared a set of display captures of objects he is come throughout on the underside of the Purple and Pink Lake rivers in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.
You will in all probability be stunned at what’s down there.
Yep, that is a storage alright
When Durick got here throughout this construction on the underside of the Purple River—clearly seen on the left aspect of the middle line representing his boat and the highest of the water column—he initially thought it was a fish home.
Upon additional assessment, after visiting with one other fisherman who runs comparable know-how, Durick says they determined the the constructing truly is a single-automotive storage.
It is laying on the underside of the river simply across the nook from the Level Bridge, in entrance of the previous Central Park. Principally probably, the constructing ended up within the river through the Flood of 1997.
“The storage is laying on its aspect, the height of the roof faces as much as the highest of your display, the door is open or the entire wall is lacking, and there’s a gap within the roof,” Durick says. “It seems like principally only a body with no siding however clearly a roof with a gap ripped in it.”
If I used to be a betting man, I might say the storage ended up within the river through the Flood of 1997.
This truck’s no toy
About eighty ft from the tipped over storage, this truck rests on its aspect on the backside of the river, as proven on the proper aspect of the Humminbird display. Do not ask me the way it works, however the depthfinder even exhibits the shadows of the wheels and the body of the truck. One other flood casualty, maybe?
In downtown Grand Forks, Durick got here throughout this quite faint, ghostly picture of an overturned wagon that has been on the backside of the river for who is aware of what number of years. By zooming in on the picture, he was capable of convey the spokes on the wheels into focus.
“The stuff downtown is superb,” Durick stated. “There are some pilings and different issues I didn’t get again to verify, however you can spend days downtown imaging what’s on the underside of the river.”
