Had trouble finding fish on Lewisville yesterday, what do you see here? Every time I stopped to fish they would disappear. Sorry for poor quality pic...

Buzzard Breath thats bait fish and fish. This time of your just find the bait fish then fish it. 90 percent of the time the fish will be mixed in with the bait. Let say that your in 50 FOW, marking fish 40 FOW. Thats the depth your gonna want to fish it. Hope this helps have a great day!

Tight lines,

Exactly what Downwind said. If I it were me I would back off on the depth font and hit your zin once. Unless you have a hard time seeing then no need for the depth to covering that much of the screen. I have the important numbers on midsize and others on small. Once you change the font size you can move them up the screen.

Fish and little bait, but I would lean towards seeing catfish even thought that's hybrid depth right now. look a little too big for sandies on that that lowrance on that depth scale IMO. Catfish will have more of sloped profile and hybrids will arc more.

I refer to that as marking a lot of junk. Mostly bait with some kind of fish here and there. If I was striper fishing that would not get me excited at all. Here is what you want to see.

Whoa, that's an impressive school of fish.
