    A few neat screenshots from today

    I'm pretty sure this is a tree:


    Thinking this is a stump or brushpile:


    Does anyone know what causes the artifacts below the bottom of the lake?


    Look at the size of this fish! There are pike and sturgeon in this lake, as well as 30#+ carp...no clue what it was though :)

    Third image maybe you slowed down your speed, although other arches look same? And its below the thermocline.

    Very good shots,,
    Your water column in down vu mode is so clean,,, and free of noise... Are you using the default settings?
    If I keep the settings on default, It seems dark and it's difficult for me to see the returns in daylight.
    I have to increase the contrast or brightness, or both..

    A few screenshots from yesterday.
    I looks like the fish swam directly in the DV beam for a while.

    In DV,, I'm unable to maintain a bright fish return and keep the water column clean.



    Fish on !!

    Even with same settings every body of water can be different. Temp, clarity, algae, nutrients, thermocline, fall turnover etc.

    do you use the auto function, or a number setting? I find that in high auto, I don’t see much on the di side....going to start playing in manual mode.

    I play around with contrast and brightness depending on light conditions. I do prefer leaving everything in auto but I find the CV screen is hard to see in bright sunlight when the settings are left on auto.
    I don't mind the CV image showing some noise because I don't miss a thing.. I'm not looking for pretty images, I looking for information and increasing the brightness and or contrast gives the info I want.

    Cheers
