Furuno 587

Hi Guys

Have recently acquired a new sounder, and was hoping you could tell me what I could be seeing in these photos.

First day today so was playing with settings a lot and messing around a bit.


Any comments welcome and thanks for your help!

Did you catch anything at the spots where the sounder pics where taken.

First three shots look

First three shots look promising, like meglodon asked anything caught?

I'm a novice at this myself, after 2 years using a HDS10 I've just installed a FCV-587. . .

I've only had 1 run with it and I reckon the bottom discrimination is pretty accurate, I used it on the probability mode. Problem is it requires a large Auto range. . .

There are plenty of knowledgeable blokes on here and some good pics in another thread (mostly Furuno pics):

The shallow spot we got a couple of black snapper (second last picture)

The other spots didn't get anything. Drifted straight through them with no eward. Maybe the fish weren't hungry
