    Teach me! :)

    Are these air bubbles? They're all at the same upward angle. Any ideas on the stacked arcs on the left side?


    Here's a downview/traditional combo of the stack:


    Pretty sure these are crappie on a hump. My friend and I caught a few:


    Another hump in the area:


    These can't all be fish, can they?


    I'm still pretty new at this, thanks for any help you can provide!

    Looks to me like your unit is set to show good arches, so those half arches must be bubbles

    That's what I was thinking, but like I said, I'm relatively new to all this. Thanks! :)

    There not air bubbles. (I have seen this suggestion many times and got into heated discussion about it and we are not doing that again) the raising lines in the first pictures are a form of interference, that isn't getting filtered out by the machine.

    Thanks! They didn't look like fish to me, but I wondered what they might be.

    That hump looks to be a pile of grass assuming that you are in the same area/spot as the pic above it that shows grass.....

    Sorry, those are not interference lines. They are air bubbles.

    Interference shows up as slashes, dots, straight lines, blocks, hash, etc. It never shows up as nice pretty arches or slanted arches like those. They are from rising bubbles.

    Good images.

    Air bubbles show up as solid lines on a diagonal from bottom left to upper right.

    Sorry I cant find my real pic so I added these lines to simulate.
