Lowrance 332c settings

3 posts in this topic

What settings do you guys use for surface clarity, noise reduction, ping speed, color line, and sensitivity on the Lowrance units? My FL-18 shows more fish than my 332c does?

Get Doc Sampson's video on how to set up Lowrance graphs. It's about $20 or so and worth every penny. I think it can be found at Reeds or just do a search for Doc Sampson Lowrance video and you should find it.

I don't think there is one correct answer for those settings and it really comes down to experimenting in different waters and different depths. I've been told by experienced tourney fishermen that they run their sensitivity at almost 100% all the time. There will be a lot of clutter on the screen but it is much easier to spot fish as well as baitfish. I know that it really did wonders with the X-15 I had when I cranked up the sensitivity, but in shallower conditions it may not be feasible to turn it up that high due to the clutter.

I just got my first color graph and have the color line set at around 80% and it seems to be OK. More time with it will dictate where it will eventually end up.

Ping speed is either 75% or 100%. Typically at 100%.

Surface clarity on low, but can depend on where I'm fishing and what the lake is like.

Noise reduction I believe is off on my unit.

Make sure your transducer is pointing straight down and just keep playing with the different settings. I think that fine tuning the sensitivity and color line will evenutally get you where you need to be.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
