Hey Guys,

I'm looking for a screenshot of squid using a CHIRP transducer,... more specifically a high frequency, wide angle unit like the B175H-W.

Anyone have a screenshot they can post?

This is what squid looks like on my CHIRP setup.
Thanks Brandon!

Based on the frequencies (130-210) in the upper left it appears you have a B75H or B175H, correct? Looks like it picks up squid pretty good.

I have a B265LH. I got it right when Simrad introduced it, so im sure there are different transducers available now. It works extremely well for squid.

That is pretty cool. I have set up several different fixed frequencies on my Garmin Chirp sonar to see if I can use them to identify species. I have heard for many years that with broadband sonar, commercial guys have done this vey well.

That's pretty much what it looks like with B175W too. Also get the blue fuzz on the bottom.

I use DownScan to determine what the bait is. You can pick out each piece and see size.

Did you mean B175H-W or any other stuffs? Because i'm considering to buy Either B175H or B175H-W where the airmar states 133KHz is best to spot squids and unfortunately B175H-W range is 150-250KHz but it lies within B175H range 130-210KHz

Wide CHIRP only come in high frequency.

I don't have a problem finding squid with HW. That's what I would get.

Later you can add a M.

This is a huge suspended ball not quite settled on a nest yet
