stephan, what kind of sonar do you have? I have lowrances on my boat and when i first got the boat i went on lowrance website and downloaded the exact model program and you can play with all the functions on the computer without touching you sonar unit. It was a great help to me .......... Good luck Scott R

I did the same with Humminbird, so I would look at the individual web site. If you are looking more for someone to tell you to set it very sensitive in winter and less in fall etc..., I would have no idea. I always adjust it by how I'm recieving the bottom, and the compostion. I really use it to find cover, and structure, don't really worry about the fish too much unless I would be in open water, which I rarely fish. Usually I have the fish ID off, so I don't hear it or see it, it just makes me mad to see all the fish, and none biting

Did your fish finder not come with a users manual. They normally cover those kinda things.

trav
they went to the manafacture's site where you can adjust the depth finder to your liking or try other adjust ments that may not work as well as you hoped. also helps when looking for a new depth finder.
