Big Fish On Graph

Recommended Posts

There is a great thread with a bunch of pics over in the electronics section of the forum....

http://www.bassresource.com/bass-fishing-forums/topic/127481-screenshots/

Mr. Wayne P ^^^ has a bunch of great posts and truly is a master of his trade. I've been checking that thread every day for updates! Learning a bunch, and can't wait to get my hands on an 899ci!

Neat to see those shad all balled up there. Something's on them. Not sure I'm seeing the 3ft bass... Don't see a single gas bladder return. Could it be a string of shad?

You must not be familiar with Imaging.

 

That is not 2D sonar that reflects air bladder 2D pulses, it's imaging that shows the body of subjects. Compare the big fish to the depth.

 

Look at post #8 and #9 here: http://www.bassresource.com/bass-fishing-forums/topic/127481-screenshots/

They are not air bladder returns, it's the body of the fish.

Ah! Thanks Wayne. No, I'm not familiar with imaging. Only 2D.

 

And... how do I compare the fish with the depth? I see 9.8 feet, but...

With Side Imaging the images are recorded on the display from the top to the bottom instead of right to left like 2D sonar. The newest data is at the top and oldest history is at the bottom. The water column (depth) is between the centerline and the recorded bottom (blue color) on both sides. Compare the length of the bass with the width of the water column (black area).

 

If you copy the image to your computer and zoom in on the bass, you can see it has its mouth open. Just have to train your eyes to see the detail.

 

I took that screen shot about a month before the Alabama rig was widely known. I wish I had that presentation available at that time, I may have had a better chance of competing with the shad school.

 

BTW, that technology has been on the market since 2004.

That's... too cool.

 

Sounds like trying to decoy geese. A couple dozen dekes just can't compete. You sit there and can't help but watch em ignore you.

 

I'm outta the loop there. Sticking with my 2D for the time being. Next upgrade will likely be Downscan.

I gave it a shot with my iphone Wayne. Not the best quality. But it appears to show the open mouth and the eyes. Am I seeing this right, or what?

Yes, that shows the mouth open. I had not noticed the eyes--too pixeliated for that.

Post #7 on this thread is probably one of my favorite screen shots of a fish I've ever seen

Was hoping you'd post this one. That catfish you graphed was awesome too.

I wish those were mine. Those are Jig Man's screenshots.

Paul, this is a subject about 6' in length with a bladder and is exhaling air:

Yep, during a SAR operation. The dive instructor wanted to see what a diver looked like with my equipment.

That's incredible, you can even see his fins.

How about a bass about 3' long attacking a school of shad?  No, I didn't catch it, but did try for about 1/2 hour.

What do you think it is?
