    What is this?

    What is the blob at the bottom? Is that fish out to the left side?

    Brushpile of some kind I would say and a possible fish to the left side just off bottom.

    I can tell you 100% It is not a brush pile. I know I have fished this hole many times.

    Rock pile? Seems like it has too many gaps in it to be a solid pile though from what I'm use to...put your scuba gear on and dive down there and tell us...lol

    It is a spring. Highly popular spot to catch 20#+ stripe. But, what I can not figure out what the yellow is above the bottom of the "spring". I have seen bubbles before on other sonars but this is the first time I have gotten this type of shot. Dunno..................

    Had a couple other ppl look at this. We have had a TON of rain here over the last month. One person suggested it could be sand/dirt plume coming out of the spring from all of the rain. What say you?

    Makes sense. Could also just be a temperature difference too. You'd be surprised at what the thermocline looks like in a lake. It can be 80 degree water down to 20 feet and then you drop below the thermocline into 60 degree water. The cold water will look like a lava flow/heat waves as you drop into it. Best way to describe it is when you look down at the clouds from above in an airplane and see the flat cloud layer. That is usually what a thermocline looks like unless it is really clear water.

    New pic of same place yesterday. BUT, I did not get the 24' depth as the other day. Same place. Strange, maybe spring was starting to fill back in? What kind of fish are those in the pic?

    Looks like a creek channel with brush to me. Side image would confirm that

    Have found interpretation on my 73sv, after owning an x85, challenging.
    I almost always run split screen with side/down (I said down)/2d,
    to get as much info for determining what I am seeing as possible.
    Half empty or half full asks the wrong question ....
