Lowrance down image

Question

slurpie

I hace a lowrance hds8 how do I get down image with only the chart plotter, so I have down image and chart plotter combo? Been looking through the manual but not finding or over looking where it says how to do it. I have the lss2 also incase that matter.

I'll try it tonight but I don't know that it's possible to do a split screen down imaging and chart without the side imaging.

I've never tried because in that scenario I would prefer a chart and regular sonar because regular sonar covers more of the bottom than DI.

main screen, Go to the main chart screen then + structure. You'll have split screen of structure on right and chart on left. Press page button until you have control of structure side. Press menu for options. You'll see one option that has structure scan right and left. Click on that tab and go to bottom...you can also choose just right, just left, or right and left...

You can go to main screen, go to main structure then + Chart as well and follow above steps.

I'm doing this my memory so I may be off on verbage or something...

Clown, correct me if I wrong but I think that shows SI. In that setup is there a way to change the SI image to DI?

I forgot to look last night but from what I can remember, the only DI option is with SI on the screen at the same time, or DI overlaid the regular sonar.

Do what Clown says - you can select left SI, Right SI, L&R SI or Down only. That will give you Chart on one side and DI on the other.

Also, you can quickly change between DI and SI with the far right hot key as long as the SS window is selected.

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
