Humminbird 958c and water temperature??

Question

rpaulson7

I bought a new Humminbird 958c in the offseason, and installed it myself. Had it in the water over the weekend, and it works great. So far it seems like an outstanding product that I'm going to love. Kicks the heck out of my old Lowrance X51.

My only problem is that I can't figure out how to see the water temperature. I installed the unit with the standard transducer (there is only one). Does that transducer detect water temp? Do I need additional equipment? Or is it in the menus somewhere?

Thanks for the input.

hmm, you should see it right on the Sonar view. Speed and temp.

If you go into the menu you should find something in there to change up what info you see on the screen (water temp, battery voltage, depth, etc...).

Go into the menu (press menu twice) click over to setup. Then go down to select readouts. You will then be able to put the water temp in one of the available windows.

Don't forget to have the unit in "advanced" mode. You will need this to change things around.

Thanks all, I will give this a shot tonight. I thought temperature was listed as a feature, but didn't see it. Looking at images of the finder on Google, it's shown with and without temp, I just need to get the options right.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.
