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.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
