Went to marine creek to mess around with the fish finder and noticed some wierd stuff on it and wasn't sure what one thing was. Pull up next to dam in around 35 ft of water now when I was around 20ft I could notice floor was showing as I went deeper I noticed fuzz I guess from that point to max depth is that normal here's a pic

the science - Thermocline shows up in sonar due to the change in density of the water (due to the rapid change in temp).

Random article from google that goes into more depth - http://www.bradwiegmann.com/sonar-and-gp...catch-fish.html
