    Oh, here is one from my TZT2 with rezboost.. I had to use the overhead fishfinder the rest of the day because people kept standing in front of the TZT2 on the dash. I will try to get better Rezboost photos in the future.

    Found a debris field the other weekend.
    Didn't see any bait or fish on or near it.

    That where I would want to be when fish are in 15ft! Save that for future use.

    At the risk of "spot burning" here are a couple of sounder shots with Furuno's Rezboost software from yesterday (only a couple days left in the season and a pain to get to.. 26nm south of PLO).

    Wide cone 50kHz on left showing arches and target separation. Right side is narrow cone 200kHz with termocline, bottom density (also had bottom discrimination on which show the bottom to be firmer mud)

    Wide cone 50kHz slow drifting over the fish with silversides under them

    Here is one from December showing radar with trails. Trails were set to 1 minute. We were fishing under birds out of PLO with the fleet. Small specs are probably what was left of the birds after the fleet descended. Range on the radar was only 1/2 mile so you can see the boats jammed in there.

    Here is another shot from the same area. The big return in the upper right is Fin Finder charters heading for the barn after limiting out for scale of returns.

    Not sure what would make an arch like that.
    I went over it a few times in different directions.
    It first I thought a big cable.
    Any ideas?

    Does the chart mark a wreck or other manmade item? The fact that it looks like a perfect circle seems to suggest that it is manmade.

    Didn't see any Frank.
    I looked at it from different directions and that was the best image I found.
    It seems to taper on the one end.
    My first thought was a cable that the current bowed it in a semi circle like that but the hump that shows when I actually went over it seemed too pronounced.
    Thought maybe there would be something on the thicker end.
    Will try and look at it again this year.
