Default Locating underwater weeds.

The boat I bought came with a graph locator and no directions for use. It has a built in tutor. One question I need an answer to is how to recognize underwater weed beds. How would I gage the height of them. Any other info on weeds on the graph would be appreciated.

you can have my fishin rod when ya take it from my cold dead hands

You have good timing, Bob-saw this on another site a couple days back-may not be exactly what you are looking for but it helps:

The best way to find what it looks like it to get over what you know are weeds and then move to open water watching your depthfinder. When you get a flat bottom with nothing sticking up you are on the edge of the weedline. By sitting over a spot you know has weeds you can see what they look like.

I had someone give me a graph with no manuals, so I went online and downloaded the manual. It helped me out alot because I had no idea how to set everything on it until I downloaded the manual. I know the basics on setting one, but this one had alot of extra features that I had never seen on my old ones.

Drag a Rat-L-Trap across the bottom and see where you get weed snags.
