Loch Ken sonar pics

Post by warder54 » 07 Jun 2018, 07:01

Took a few screen shots from my Raymarine wifish when we were there in April. Meant to post them earlier but forgot.
Lots of bait fish and a couple of bigger fish, one looks like a Pike going into a shoal of fish. One interesting shot of a submerged bush just out from the bank opposite where we were launching.

Nice detail, i'm gonna be experimenting with mine tomorrow, garmin 55, had it for Christmas & have never had a lot of time out on the water to try different things with it, as we're going fishing should have some time to play.

Nice screenshots, I do like looking at sonar pictures. I usually forget to hit the buttons when I see something interesting. My best to date is a sidescan shot of a local wreck.

The centre line is the boats wake and the dark bit is the water depth. You can clearly make out the boiler.

Nice one Stray. I was so impressed with the WiFish (no screen - use your mobile) that I've bought the Dragonfly Pro 7 with the screen and plotter. They use the same mount and cable/transducer. So I now just switch the head unit from boat to boat!

Have a Garmin Echomap 45 DV fishfinder plotter.
Can do normal and clear view always have difficulty seeing fish in UK as the smaller sub 1lb fish dont show that well.
whats other people experience, only have mine a few months so still getting used to it.
Great for navigating straight to a structure and downview for finding right position.
but seeing fish not so clear

On normal sonar the fish show as arches, on Down view the are just little bright dots. Have a look on Base Boat central plenty of info on how to use fish finders.
