Cracking the Baitfish Code

Recommended Posts

I've been having a hard time distinguishing baitfish on my graph. I know most of this is due to graph quality so I need to upgrade but are there other things I should be noticing? Water conditions or bottom content? What do I need for an upgrade. I'm using an ID128 (yeah I know) ? The 320 seems appealing but will it show me baitfish recognizable to my eyes and peabrain? All of this pertains to pursuing inland lakers.

Chuncky never turn on the fish ID on your depth finder. A good size trout will look bannana shaped or like a long line on your depth finder. Even without the best depth finder on the market.

If you see what you think is a school of bait fish then look for those bannana's or lines to be in, behind, or under the school of bait fish.

One thing that may look like a school of bait fish is mayflies emerging from the bottom. They emerg from muddy bottoms and can look like a school of bait fish.
