Garmin images / What am I seeing?

Recommended Posts

I was out on the lake today and saw some things on my Garmin. I Don't know what they are. I took some pics. Any one have any idea what I was seeing? I made a couple of passes over it.

                                     Thanks

I kind of think the top pic looks like a bait ball but weirdly elongated . The next several look really weird, like maybe prop wash. Mine will mark a prop wash when I goose  it in reverse. The other guess I have is a submerged bridge or culvert

Thanks, I'm sure that wasn't prop wash. We made three passes over it 3-5 minutes apart. I've never seen anything like it.

You could be right. The first image could be a bait ball. What do you think the other images are?

They're all bait fish.

The first image clearly shows a bait ball in the center of the image. There is, what looks like more bait on the top right of the same image right at the edge of the SI range which is more scattered, or less tightly packed. 

 

Remember, you are always moving and the bait is probably moving. Different speeds and different angles will give you different images of the same object. 

 

One thing I want to make mention of again is we are not all Wayne P. I have neither the time, patience, nor desire that he has to take perfect images. Plus, most of what I fish, are considered soup bowl lakes with little or no structure.  I myself am more concerned with finding the fish and/or finding the breaks. Your picture is textbook. You found a hump and you found bait. I would make that a waypoint to revisit.
