Mike Nelson has been hired to test a new relatively inexpensive sonar device that can be used as a fish finder. After a day of testing they dock in a small Mexican village where an old fisherman is being beaten. It seems the old man is catching plenty of fish while the other fisherman are returning practically empty handed. He's refusing to tell them where this fishing spot is located and some are accusing him of witchcraft. Mike steps in not only to protect the old man but to find out why the fish seem to be congregating in one particular location. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


There is no sweep on the radar scope of the Sonar Queen's radar set. Further, although the radar set is omnidirectional, the blip representing Mr. Ramirez's boat appears in the lower right hand quadrant of the radar scope, which would indicate that the boat was behind and to the right of the Sonar Queen, in spite of the Sonar Queen pursuing it.
