The angle of the transucer refers to the cone angle. Consider the cone angle an inverted funnel extending down from your hole. The 2 most common angles are 10 and 19. The wider the cone angle the larger amount of bottom your transducer will cover. generally speaking the deeper you fish the smaller your angle should be allowing your vex to concentrate more on the area just below your bait. Iversely if you fish mainly shallow water say under 20' the wider your beam should be. But im no expert ask any of the guys that have fished with me lately.

Just got a new one last week. My 19 degree was a bit dinged up and was reading a lot of false marks and my gain had to be way up around 4-6 in order to see my presentation. Well, the wife went to Dick's and picked up a dual transducer (one that you can switch back and forth from 9 - 19 degrees) For me this comes in real handy as I like to move around alot. 19 is by far the most common and will give you about a 3 foot viewing area at 10 feet where a 9 degree will give you just over a foot at 10 feet. Now that I have the new one hooked up I can have my gain set between 0 - 1 and clearly see my presentation. NICE..... Just picked up a five pack of SOS... cant wait for the wife to get home from work so I can head out. Got presidents day off. grin.gif

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
