Mud Question....

4 posts in this topic

At what depth does the mud usually start or does it vary.

What do I look for on my graph.... a "fuzzy" bottom?

Thanks

Mud to hard bottom transitions on this lake vary from place to place, they're where you find them.... Anywheres from 1 foot to 30+ foot you can find them I'd reckon.

Depending on your sonar the bottom will show a color change or grayscale change, with a flasher the 'width' of the bottom return will be less over the soft bottom than the hard.

Sal, if you head out to fish the basin, look for fish not just mud. The schools that form up in the basin can be massive. When Fiskynut and I were out recently, we were on a school of fish that was enourmous. Most of the time there were 30 to 50 fish on the graph all the time. Fisky thought it looked like I was in simulator mode.

Good luck.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
