SI further explanation of the PVC Tree

Ray's picture

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.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
