Thread: Sounder Reading

    Re: Sounder Reading

    A pic of our old sounder. Didn't know what we were missing until we got a good sounder. The same ground we had been fishing for 3 years took on a whole new meaning with increased visabilty from a quality sounder.

    I'd be interested in hearing your report on the Raymarine too. Those digital colour sounders look to be the way of the future.

    Any chance one of the mods can make this one sticky, I think it is a real good learning tool.

    At last no wind
    This photo shows a school of small school mackrel ( 40-50cm) had to drop a jig down to find out what they were.

    this photo shows clumps( arrows) of weed that is kelp like in looks but the leaves are only about 1 inch wide, the water was clear enough to see the bottom.

    This thread is worth millions! WHilst I am still big time in learning mode, I hope to be able to add to the amazing wisdom & learning that this site brings together. Goes to show how such a strong common bond in fishing brings out the best, and the generosity in people~!

    Thanks to all who have contributed to far - my turn will come (probably as a question!!)

    What has happened to the weather, 2 windless days in a row, shot out for another quick fish this morning and took the following photo.
    This is what 10-12kg spanish mackrel look like on my sounder (hooked one about 4 seconds after takeing this photo, the vertical lines in the pic are interference from a boat powered by a 4 stroke about 20 meters away, have found 4 strokes cause this up to about 50 meters away with some models being worst then others.

    Hey Scott,
    How is the cod fishing going with those temps, I think I would just stay in bed all winter untill the weather got up to at least 20 degrees. I thought it was bad last week when we got down to 14 over night for 2 days in a row and all of the shops up here sold out of warm gear, tonights forcast is for 19 over night up to 31 tomorrow. Did'nt get any photos of the mack, they are that thick at the moment that in 2 trips totaling 4an1/2 hours on the water trolling lures we have caught 4 spanish and 14 school macks plus 1 longtail that deceided that it to liked crazy deeps. When do you look like getting up here again?
    Talk to you again soon,
