I’m often posting screenshots from my Humminbird fish finder on the Catfish Edge website and on social media. When I post these images I always get lots of comments from anglers about how their fish finders don’t look anything close to mine and they just don’t get the same images from their fish finder.
With that in mind, I decided I’d put together a few videos covering some tips for better fish finder images using side imaging, down imaging and 2D sonar. I’m starting this week with tips on getting better fish finder images from your side imaging and will follow up in future videos covering the other types of sonar.
It’s important to note that although I’m using a Humminbird Solix 15 in this tutorial the information covered in this video pertains to all sonar fish finders, not just Humminbird or just the Humminbird Solix.
When I’m helping people to troubleshoot their side imaging issues and understand why they’re not getting good images the issues usually fall into two categories, installation issues and issues with improper use.
Installation issues means the fish finder unit is not installed correctly. Some of the common issues include inadequate power sources or power sources causing interference, transducers not being installed correctly and transducers not being leveled.
the improper use issues are what I’m covering in this weeks video but it’s important to note that if you’re getting interference or having issues because of transducer installation there’s no amount of tweaking or adjustments to your settings or use that will fix the issues. You need to have a good clean install, good transducer placement and the transducer leveled.
