Depth finder question

2 posts in this topic

I have to ask this question just to see if it is just me or is this something other people expierence too.

I have a Raytheon 365L DepthFinder, when I use it on my local lake, which is very clear, and for the most part, a firm bottom lake with sand points and what not, I can mark fish in the water pretty good, I can usually watch the fish move from deep water in the late afternoon to the shallows in the evening when they begin to feed.

When I take the unit to Lake of the Woods, I can still mark a few fish BUT not near the numbers a person would expect, especially when your catching bunchs of fish but hardly anything is showing up on the finder. I mean we will be getting double headers and what not but not a fish is showing up on the screen?!

So I guess for the most part my question is this, Would there be something in the make-up of the lake that would cause this?

Just curious.....

There are a lot of things that can effect your readings. Water temp,Depth,cone angels, bottom hardness,gain setting, speed,suspended particals ,time of day.
Fish lay tight on the bottom to rest and because the bottom is cool. Thus making them hard to ping with your sonar. They are there you just cant see um.

    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
    • Forget adjusting the current tax system, we need to flush it and start over.
    • there might be a point on them look at about the 1:09 mark in the video, looks like something there; but i would be hesitant to buy one until some more info comes out about them
    • Don't forget those lower healthcare premiums for the middle class.
    • I'm not sure its his back that is ailing him now. It certainly may be, but what I have seen is his stride isn't what it used to be. His right leg doesn't seem to have the push it used to. Lou Nanne commented the same thing on Barriero's show yesterday. It certainly could be his back, but he had a knee injury last year that he tried to play through and had a "lower body" earlier this year that some said was the result of blocking a shot. I really don't think playing in the World Cup was a good idea for him. He has missed so many games the last few years only to add a few more on top of it? Not a wise choice. Correct, that is how I understand it. The front end he could be getting something like $13M salary and the backend $5M, but it will all average out over the term (13 years) which results in the cap hit of $7.5M.
    • That must be pretty noisy? The ones at the top probably could be eliminated. You might still consider a ceiling huger fan, I bet you use a generator more than you think you will.
    • That is good to know.   
    • I would go further and say that the connection is a consensus.   It doesn't seem to have been verified by actual chemical analysis but the timing and geographic distribution similarity is pretty convincing.     One interesting thing is that a lot of people ate a lot of sick cows in the UK and some other parts of Europe, but not all that many got vCJD.   Thousands of cows, maybe as many as 400,000, and 177 cases in people as of 2014, with a few more each year.  
    • You can do it yourself with froth packs at Menards. It expensive but at the price you were quoted it would work out but you still need a warm place to do it.
