Sticko it seems to me the deeper the water the better the units scan....

At least that's what my units turn out for me.

you are probably right about that the units are so powerful

that in shallow water the beam is bouncing from the transducer

and the bottom so many times in that short distance it may distort

the picture some.

Thought I'd post some pictures from my new Humminbird Helix 9, with down scan, no side scan. I had read that units with down and side scan use the same transponder antenna for both, and it is optimized for side scan, where the units with just down scan have the transponder optimized for down scan. SO here they are.

More good stumps. Might be fish to the right of the small stump.

Great shots Dutch, those dedicated DI units turn out some great DI scans for sure.....
The all in one units SI/DI/2D puts out a generated DI scan from the SI crystals but the DI units have DI dedicated crystals in their transducers.....
Those Helix units turn out some great scans....
I'm spoiled now gotta have that SI......

Dutch looks like the sensitivities is a little high giving all the brown dots

at the bottom you may be thinking are fish.

Only the brightest dots are fish, not the brown ones.
