Screenshots

Here is a great place for you to show off a cool screenshot or ask a question about one. 

 

When posting a screenshot please include a description of what is in the picture and also let us know what fish finder you were using.

I can start with a little humor.  Here's a screenshot from my HB 798 SI/DI of a view that I see quite often on my little lakes.

 

Welcome to my world................................................. ;):lol:

How do you even choose which piece of structure to hit first?

It's funny...but it's sad too. All my lakes are man-made, and with one exception they were all logged and most stumps pulled before they were filled so I see this view quite a bit.  I do have some lakes with some structure features - ledges/drop offs, vestigial channels, etc, but in general, even the 30-35ft deep lakes are just big, empty bowls.

It sure is Hunting Run. There are several dozen places like that. There are 4 of them within 100 yards.

 

I went around the lake and got waypoints for a lot of the interesting places and did a video describing the waypoints.

 

This one was too deep to see it but shows the effort put into creating those brush piles. They did the pile and put a whole tree on top of it.

I was lucky enough to fish it a few times before the water level increase and hope to get out there again soon, might even remember where a few are located. The first month or so that place was open was truly an amazing experience!!

So, I am EXTREMELY NEW to fishin with Sonar. I have a Lowrance Elite HDI 7 with DSI. I have literally never seen anything like this on my screen. Do I have a not so good quality fish finder, or do I need to dial in my settings? I eager to get good at using it so I can submit screenshots like this - BEFORE (showing school of Bass) AFTER - (showing a big Largemouth I caught!)

 

Thanks for any tips!!

Well you have to be where stuff is to see stuff. The Lowrance units are very good at showing stuff with Down Scan which is what yours has as well as traditional 2D sonar.

I don't even have a boat, and I'm impressed how far technoLogy has advanced for these finders. Still trying to figure out what I'm looking at with these side view scans.

This is the same brush pile as above that I posted a picture of before full pool and what it looks like with Down Imaging and traditional 2D sonar.   Humminbird 1198c SI Combo

Humminbird 798ci SI Combo

This is a very thick weed bed point (on the right) a Hydrilla-like weed with Side Imaging:

This is the Down Imaging view of that point that shows the individual weed stems:

This is the same with the combo DI and 2D views:
