    Hi Yall,
    Ive read a few post and had a few guys tellin me to look for brush piles in deep water in order to locate Bait fish ( crappie, bream, deeper shad). How do you go about locating these brush piles and can any one explain to me what it would look like? I have a Humminbird 535. Any and all help is very appreciated! Thanks

    Structure like a tree will appear as a tall, narrow spike on your display. Bush will return soft echoes and look similar to a mud bottom, except it will rise up off the bottom. I thought the tutorial pages for Lowrances Depth Finders show brush, rocks, etc. You may try a google search for their pages.
