    Re: Examples of Striped Bass in the Delta on a Lowrance Sonar Unitf

    I've owed differed brands of FF/sonars and could never get arch readings, only "pencil" type mark. Thx for your post.

    Re: Examples of Striped Bass in the Delta on a Lowrance Sonar Unit

    great post, a while back i thought about creating a thread where members could post snapshots of things they see on their sonar that they could not decipher, and ask the community for help on it. i've been staring at my sonar for years and still have trouble making out what i am looking at.

    That down scan is nice,, you better report the location to the Police because there is dead body down there, i can see fingers.

    Thanks...very much appreciated!

Is it worth it...does that technology help make you a better lineside catcher? My Lowrance is about ten years old and I get sonar readings like yours above on the left and often can predict strikes moments before they occur. The old school rationale is that “good enough is good enough.” What say ye?
