I'm a crappie guy 95% of the time, but I like to take friends and family (who are not fishermen) out to catch whites and hybrids from time to time. Surface schooling action is especially fun and an easy method, but I'd like to be able to put them on fish more consistently. That means learning how to spot them on the bottom.
I mainly fish RC and know the lake fairly well. I know some of the more common spots for whites and hybrids on the lake, but I'm not completely sure of what's what when I'm viewing these fish on my graph. I have an HDS8 gen2, so it's just a matter of me learning to interpret what I'm seeing in regards to the whites and hybrids. I've found that seeing other folk's screen shots is one of the best ways for me to figure it out, so any good ones you have would be greatly appreciated!

Any idea how to get the down scan to look that clear? I have an HDS 7 and my down scan does not look like that. Maybe I just need the settings that you have the downscan on.

You tube has some excellent tutorials with regard to your question. Google lowrance hds 7 tutorials, write down some suggested settings and go to the lake. Friendly suggestion the more murky the water the higher the setting for clarity. Most problems are simple. Contrast. !

This is a general idea of traditional and down scan of the same fish.
