ColoGregS Another leveling issue that I have not seen mentioned is throttle level. When you have your boat on plane vs when your are trying to keep the nose up for a dry ride vs when you have your kicker down and trolling.

There are an infinite number of variables in the leveling equation.

mh454 I used the coin/level technique to make sure my transducers where level when in the water. I was amazed how much I had to raise up my jack when in the garage to replicate being on the water. Since I run a tiller and sit in the back I can only assume I'm pretty nose high.

Changing chart speed can make quite a difference on how fish appear on 2D sonar. I run around 1-2 notches below the highest speed.

Schins Im way too fascinated by modern fishing electronics to get rid of them. I love seeing whats under the water, and find myself wanting to watch my finder more than wanting to actually fish.

How do you miss a animal that is about 2000 lbs and over 6 ft tall.

Running water was always available........just grab a bucket and run down to the lake and fill it up.

Dirty floors are a result of not sweeping up.

Bingo............. just being able to see the bottom structure and fish is enough to make a good catch. Too many anglers are worried about the clarity of the screen and not enough on the presentation of the bait to have a successful day on the water.

Yoi cant account for waves and yes you want to level for normal list side to side as well if your boat lists. If you always fish 1 person then level for that or if 2 then level that way. You cant 100% get your boat level but you can make it as close as level for your everyday fishing style

Put boat in gear then grab a bunch of coins and a level to get the level straight. Remeber how many coindls you used and the spot then level the boat on dry ground or in garage the same way. That means the boats in the in gear level position and all you need to do is put transducer level and viola perfect arcs

I'll be doing this when I get home in 2 weeks. Need to go out with a second person / wife too.

Takes a lot to tune / rig a boat correctly when you first get it and set it up. Have to get all the gear in the boat to for how it will be riding.
