Is this normal? (X102C Problem)

3 posts in this topic

When operating at slower, trolling speeds, I get a nice pretty picture, but when running on plane or just below, my nice "solid" bottom picture gets very thin and "pixilated" if you will. I never actually lose bottom, it just looks different at speeds over trolling speeds.

I've moved the skimmer transducer all over the place, up, down, left and right, to no avail. I think it may be turbulance from the rivets along the back of the boat, but I'm not sure. The same thing happens with two different units and two different transducers which were swiched out and run at different times.

Also, does anyone elses transducer throw its own rooster tail.

Thanks,

Jeff

I think I'll move the transducer to the other side of the boat to see if that helps.

There is a feature that you can set on it that will make everything from the bottom down solid when going fast. On a X97 it is called bottom black. I can't remember what it is called on a 102c.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
