Went to Lake Ouachita for the first time and tried to find contours on my HDS 8 on the console of my boat but could only get the 3-D. It is connected to a Gen 1 HDS 10 that is on the front of the boat, which did display contour lines. In the menu on screen it says " no contours ". I am sure there is probably something I am missing could someone guide me in the right direction?

Feel lucky Chief, I do not have any lines at all with my cheap unit I use a navionics app on my phone or just follow birds
 Fishing has been tough down there lately....

Four of us were trying to catch black bass with a guide and caught 1 bass Friday and a Walleye. 4 walleye, 1 crappie, and three blacks Saturday. A cold front followed us down there Thursday and Friday high pressure and almost no wind set us up for tough fishing for two days. I have been wanting to check out that lake for twenty years and just never got around to it but I enjoyed the opportunity to go with some old friends and see the lake. Probably will not be my last trip but most likely will fish for bass, walleye, and crappie to stock the freezer.

Well I solved the problem. It was a mental malfunction compounded by a senior moment. I had a chip in the unit and it was overriding the confuser. I have contours of Lake Ouachita now that I don't need them.

Now a boat is a small place to share with an attitude on board!!
