Sorry to ask noobe question, but the last graph I had told me depth of water and had pictures of little fish on the screen.

So can some one tell me what the pictures of the graph are displaying?
I think its fish from the bottom attacking bait fish near the surface.

In an effort to learn something myself I will ask, why is the transducer not set right? If I saw this on my graph I would fish like crazy. Instead of just making one comment please offer solutions and answers.

those should be full arches if the transducer was set right if you were moving but probably sandbass.

Looks like some type of bass chasing/feeding and probably sand bass.

Looks like fish streaking up. Were you moving or sitting still? Here are a couple pics off my troll motor transducer sitting still over a school of 2-3 lb bass with bass swimming through beam and streaking up. They were pushing bait out of the ball in 26 ft up in 19 ft and even to the surface that day. The second pic shows two chasing bait up high, Broken bait school is the blue. If you are moving your transducer may be angled.......

Btw I have my dash unit mounted outside in the back. Several trees have claimed transducers and I can't seem to dial it in like the one up front. I tend to get half arcs because I can't get the dang thing flat. Run your downscan in a separate window beside your sonar display. That will tell you more of what your seeing. This was a school of big whites and big bass mixed together. Managed a 9+ black out of it. Again sonar is on troll motor and sitting still or barely trolling Down scan transducer is at the back of the boat and displaying on little unit up front.

2D at the bow and Downscan at the transom are NOT looking at the same thing in the same perspective, so I never expect such an experiment to provide truly comparative views. The cones are looking down in different places many feet apart, so they aren't looking at the same thing! Read what Lowrance says about installation and operation.....

Is this a Lowrance? I think that you can display that same info if you turn on Fish ID in the Sonar Options.
