    Quick question....do you guys fishing on the colorado ever mark fish on your finders? If my humminbird is on "fish I.D." I can get symbols but once I go to raw sonar I get nothing. I pretty much realize that the symbols must actually be debris in water. Just wondering if anyone ever actually marks fish that are truely there?

    damien, i'm going out on limb, but gonna say it like i see it. i see bass, stripers, gills, but for cats, if i want to catch, only time i do is when i don't see fish.

    If you have a decent sonar you should be able to mark them. I have a pretty cheap unit on my boat, I use it for depth and surface temp only..

    Some of the expensive HD units that are out will paint a real clear picture of the bottom and I bet there would be no difficulty seeing a 60 lb flatty sitting in a hole.

    I don't have a lot of experience with fish finders, but, mainly I use them for bottom contour, depth, and the temp...

    Thanks guys. Im the same way with my unit. I look for depth and water temp along with contour as well. I was just wondering how much the fish actually stack up some areas of the river.
