I am having a hard time understanding what I am looking at, hereis a picture that I have no idea what it is. Is there something wrong with my unit as it seems to be very fuzzy out on the edges?

With the depth at 6.5 feet you might want to cut down your side range to 2 or 3 times the depth or 25 feet for better bottom pictures. Basically in shallow water the side image beams can only travel that distance so anything beyond that range will be distorted. Now after you make that adjustment if you still get the lines out on the edge you need to adjust the transducer as it could be tilted a bit to the left.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
