Is this normal? (X102C Problem)

Question

jquittum

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.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
