 not sure exactly what model, but have a 2kw 200 and a 2kw 50 through hull. those shots are on 200. boat was set up for deep dropping so has a bit of grunt there.

 Beau its limestone  with crevices.

And  bulk fish above it. Worth a drop sometime there  will  be a big dhu amongst it  all.

 How do you know it's limestone? Is it the same bottom in the other photos?

Because of personal  experience.

Different bottom from rest  for  sure.they may be hard but they  arent as hard and not ledgy crevisy..bottom trace is thicker on 37m spot even though its shallower  . You get them reads on ground that's  undulating..ledgey crevisy stuff.

 No fish but doesn't mean

Sat, 2016-09-24 08:09

 No fish but doesn't mean they weren't there. Bite had shut down. I read it as either a solid school of something solid or a cave with a few fish around. Either way looked fishy to me

 Yep agree with Maggot Looks

Sat, 2016-09-24 10:27

 Yep agree with Maggot. Looks like porous limestone to me 

The only prob with Auto gain, is it runs too high a gain for me.

 Be great pics all the same and thanks for sharing.

Sounder pic!

Tue, 2016-09-27 14:49

Yo Jarrid,

 

Having owned and used Furuno commercial sounders for over 10 years my thoughts;

Pic 4 is a limestome ledge and I dont see fish. Normally at that hight it holds good crays and it can hold a fish or two so worth a quick drift!

Manual everything for me so you can fine tune your sounder!

Ps. nice looking esky non the less

seems to be the consensus

Tue, 2016-09-27 15:14

seems to be the consensus that pic 4 is limestone. 

 

any thoughts on pic 2 in particular, as well as what you think the bottom is in pics 1 and 3?

 

also, have you got any settings for a 295 that are worth a crack to compare to auto? i generally fish between 30 and 50m.

 

i think it reads pretty bloody good in auto to be honest.

 Broken ground!.sand /small patches of rubble and weed.

If youve got a go pro send it down one day.that will fast track  your  learning of the basics of your  sounder.

Im even more confused at pic

Tue, 2016-09-27 16:59

Im even more confused at pic 4 now haha.
Which part of the sounding is the actual bottom, the solid red bar at 35m or the fuzzy stuff above it?

 Sometimes youll get that

Tue, 2016-09-27 18:42

 Sometimes youll get that  seperation as in pic 4 if your  picking up the overall main height of the  area but  there is a higher bit ( limestone bombie)off to the  side of the beam.

Or there is bulk bait and the  gain is high.

Either  way beau that bottom trace is the  actual bottom .hope that helps mate!

A few drives over that  spot from different directions would easily confirm it.

Cheers that's what i thought but when Ryan said no fish at all i got a bit confused because i thought the fuzz was bait, what you say makes sense to me. Looking forward to getting some pics of my own for you to guys to interpret, at the moment all i know is what sambos and pinks look like

Tue, 2016-09-27 18:43

 The solid red bar Beau, that shows hard rock bottom. The bottom lock pic on the left shows it clearer, up where we fish usually hit that type of ground in the 40m mark. And that's where we get the bulk of our Baldy's.
