Humminbird Side imaging on Pickwick Lake

Ray's picture

By Ray - Posted on 09 August 2010

Here is another picture later in the day and I had switched to amber2 in order to see the screen in the sunshine. This picture is a very good example of fish suspended very high in the water column in the narrow green rectangle. Notice in the corresponding green square the fish have created a sonar shadow that is a long way to the side and long shadows. This tells me the fish are just under the surface.
Jackpot is the tall stump just off the drop. This stump is 4 feet tall and has a nice diameter. The cursor is the actual stump the dark portion is the sonar shadow created by the stump.

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, crank baits 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.
