If Harvey had not changed the bottom this would keep you from running in shallow water
it will still work on most lakes around
will also help find humps and ledges https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaVqoLeJeeM

Thanks sticko,
My fish finder has the some of the same features and had no clue how to utilize these to my advantage.
To be honest never used a fish finder before...now I have one on my old boat that cost more than the boat in 1993. I look at a bit then go fishing without using it.
LOL

I think there are more people than we realize go out and buy a depth finders
thinking by just putting the thing on the boat it will put all kinds of fish in the
boat. with out ever learning the proper way to use them to find the kind of
fish you want to catch.
But with a little only a little time spent learning how to use the fish finders properly
they will put a lot of fish in the boat. Once you learn how to use it . The hard work comes in
the time you spend searching structure that holds the fish.

Not all structure will hold fish. But all fish will hold to structure.

In addition to transducer offset and lake level, I did not realize my GPS had a projection datum built into it.

I can load GPS coords from a different projection and the PC software that came with my unit will auto correct them before they write to my SD card.

Don't know what Humminbirds default to, but I found out my unit defaults to NAD27 projection. If I load points from a WGS84 projection they could be off by 100's of feet.
