Wow, I wrote this a lifetime ago............I know when I was looking for fish I was going fairly slow...............more than an idle, but certainly not on plane I had a 600L (I think), so on my way out I would just watch the structure, then slow down to find fish on structure...........I seriously don't remember if I was on 50 or 200hz - sorry............SeaDawg,
When your searching the fish with the sonar how fast are you generally cruising in the boat to still see reliable results at 300'? What kind of sounder and transducer are you running, and are you on 50 or 200hz. Appreciate the writeup great info.
No. I would give up and go home if it was windy, sea anchor or not, fishing in 300 feet and trying to drop on fish is mission impossible in windy conditions. IMHOExcellent tutorial! Do you use a sea anchor when it's windy?
