Old spots, new results.

Hit the water solo on Monday to give the new transducer a sea trial. Having installed a TM260 I was pretty happy with the results, not much wind with a little swell made for pretty consistent readings. Spent most of my time out there going over known ground, especially a couple of spots I've dived before to get an idea of what the sounder was showing up. Solid returns even when doing 35 knots on the way back in.

Only using jigs and plastics, was able to keep busy whilst grabbing a feed and some bait for next time out. Highlight was the tuna which took the abrolhos crayfish 100g jig I threw at it on the way back in. Managed to birds nest the spool on the cast and still get it in. Not often you see these guys busting the surface 200m offshore from bunbury.

 Have you set the sounder to TM260 ? Just wonering as water temp is out.

How fast were you going when you took these pics ? I would definately have a dive on the first one.

Sounder pics

 Pics were taken with motor just in gear, this pic is the first spot run over @ 15 knots.

Might have to look at which exact model was selected, thanks for pointing out the temp. Mounting bracket is standard stainless kit that airmar have for the TM260. Had to use four of the plastic wedges to get the right angle.
