Tiny,

Do you prefer to run the factory settings on the Humminbirds or do you " dial them in"? Any tips for the 2d or the sidimaging?

Thanks, 
Cody

it's not all that technical the way I set mine ... side imaging I set the sensitivity 15 and the chart speed to 10 ... the 2d I set to full sensitivity so that the catfish show up ... get aq lot of clutter that way but I can tell what is clutter and what is fish. on the side imaging you only want to set it out to about 60 foot on both sides and then stake different fish out then take a screenshot of them by hittin the mark button with a writeable SD card in your unit so that it takes the pic ... need to set it to take screenshots as well too. do it with different sized catfish and scaley fish so that you can refer back to the screenshots when you're out looking for fish and that way you can see the difference in what the fish look like. do that with a small rope, weight of some kind big enough to hold solid to bottom ... tie fish above the weight about a foot and then a jud on top so that you can retreieve you fish ... go by the fish with your boat with side image on at 60 ft and then take a screenshot of it then go back and collect your fish and do it with different sized fish so you can accurately judge how big fish are. do it with scaley fish also so you can tell the differeence

Tiny,
I've been re-reading ur book and online posts allot this winter.  What I find interesting about ur advice is that it's practical experience based. It's like a good sermon - not a bunch of thoughts and theories - but something practical I can live by.  Like your advice here about staking out a fish and then image it to see what it looks like. Nearly everything you advise comes from a subject that you've really worked at and proven in a practical way. Thanks again for sharing so openly. 
  

The more you practice, the luckier you get.
