Awesome Depth Sounder / Fish finder footage!!! of Deep Reef and Wreck

Depth Sounder footage to die for, this show’s some great footage of a couple of our fishing spots, A new found wreck, and a tiny reef, with some quality results. We use a Furuno Depth Sounder, FCV 585 on all our charter boats, Mako, Raptor II and obsession, and highly recommend a quality sounder. You get what you pay for and also running a 1 KW through hull transducer. Look closely and you’ll see the detail of the structure and all the fish schooling around it. This wreck was cover in fish as the Depth sounder shows, but we really did find the Nannygai nursery with this spot. It’s usual to get into quality fish this far out, but as most fish were undersize, we eventually left them biting. We did get several nice smallmouth Nannygai off the spot. I even tried a big plastic, but no trevally, cod or other monster in residence on the day. That’s fishing. Weather conditions deteriorated, and we tried another nearby spot. Absolutely tiny and not much structure, but enough to hold quality fish. On this day they were particularly spread out and some drifts managed to find the trophy Nannygai we were after. Look closely at the Depth sounder and you can hardly see any bottom at all, but some good fish were still showing.
It really does pay to get out there and use your Depth sounder, feel free to play with the settings, Auto, is just that Auto, doesn’t necessarily mean the best settings, and can be deleting the stuff you want to see.
Manual Gain is the go, but don’t turn it up too much or else will also show false reading. As well as a good Depth sounder, a Separate quality GPS unit is the go, to ensure you accurately work your marks, if 30 – 50 ft off, sometimes you mightn’t as well be fishing.
