Got a chance to use my new Lowrance Combo unit with structure scan recently. There were loads of birds, bait and fish all week, and I really did not need structure scan or even a depth finder but wanted to try it out. I just got the new unit installed before leaving for eight days of fishing up north. Did not have time to study the unit ahead of time. It took about a day and a half to learn to use all the pertinent features of the chart plotter and regular depth finder. I really like some of the new features and the screen is very sharp and bright. It is a significant improvement over my 104c.
With loads of fish and bait on top and under the surface, I fired up the structure scan to see what it looked like with obvious targets all around the boat. Not sure yet whether it is showing the bait or the fish or both. It is not really what I expected and I will need much more experience with the side scanning and bottom scanning feature.
Here are some screen shots when we were in lots of bait and fish. Can those with experience with this unit help explain the marks on the side scan pics? Does it look like yours? Does it appear that the transducer is mounted and working properly. I have no idea what the picture is supposed to look like. Any info or discussion appreciated.
