SI further explanation of the PVC Tree

Ray's picture

By Ray - Posted on 25 August 2010

Here is a little further explanation of the SI image of the PVC tree I put out. The pink arrows are pointing to a little ledge about 2 foot high. The yellow circles are the sonar shadows from the 2 PVC trees we put on top of the ledge. The red circle is the actual PVC tree. I have learned when using SI you must take into account the sonar shadow to tell you how high the cover sticks up and how thick the cover is but when marking the waypoint you must mark the actual cover to get your point accurate. Hope this helps and you guys enjoyed the little exercise.

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.
