Sounder shots

 Couple of interesting sounder shots from wide yesterday. We didn't manage anything for this so not really sure what it was, although I think I'm seeing individual large fish amongst it.

We managed to get a bait down through it as you can see in the secound shot but we were set up for bottom bouncing and I think this probably needed some gigs...

What do you blokes think this is??

 Looks like bait to me. When I used the raymarine gear schools of fish from hardyheads to skippy would look like this. In your second pic you can see how the bubbles on your bait/sinker going down show up as blue/green so compare this to the majority of fish around it. The darker blotches are denser concentrations of those fish.

I found fiddling with the Intensity/Colourgain stopped me getting too excited by large bait shows.
