Shorelines with down trees are a great place to start when learning side scan. Sandy bottoms with gravel and larger rocks are also good places to start. Just remember, objects will cast shadows and you won't be able to see what's beyond it if it's big. In the spring, go to known bluegill spawning areas and you should be able to see beds and even see fish on them. Good luck getting to know your new sonar.

Pinboy - Thanks for the suggestion.  Looking at docks and water platforms would be a good start to begin to dial in the side imaging.  It seems like there is a lot of time spent on figuring out your settings and then whenever you get the range of setting figured out.  You have to continually fine tune them.

Good luck on the water,

Rob

Hit Delavan Sunday afternoon for crappies they are still working the weed edges and suspended took us a little while to find them but when we did the payoff was great definitely got some of the bigger crappies that we've pulled from Delavan this year

Fished Saturday from 8:30am till 11am started in 30ft casting the big jig into 20ish lotsa hits first fish a very fat smallmouth followed up with a few 2 to 3lb largemouth made a move and found a couple of bigger largemouth 3 to 4lb with more light taps (walleyes) but I was not able to get the hookups. Made a move into the docks with largemouth under them also and they were all sizes 2 to 4lbs. The green weeds deep were very green and thick and were holding fish.

The first time i have ever caught 5 species in one day lmb, pike, perch, gill and crappie. What a jam packed day full of excitement. I have never seen the boat in such disarray after today when we got off the water.My 7 year old son did not want to leave. So were going back out in the morning. So glad the pleasure boating is down to a minimum.

Got out on a spur of the moment trip with my good friend Kuko on Thursday to go have some fun in the rain we got a little action from everything from snake norther to really heavy largemouth bass so I'd say our mission to have a fun day one the water was a success and its looking to only get better with those water temps dropping :D hope everyone has a good fall and hope to see you all out there!!!
