Lowrance Settings
« on: August 06, 2011, 05:27:23 PM »

Hey guys,

Trying to get familar with the HDS-5 unit.
You guys have any tips on how to get the most out of this unit.

Should I just keep the auto sensitivty and auto everything?
I know to take the fish ID off in most cases.

The other day I really started to mess around with it.

I put it on manuel mode.
Sensitivity - 85%
Color Line -75%
set the depth - 0-45ft
Noise - low
surface clutter- low
ping speed - 17
chart speed - normal
and a few other things.

I was able to see my dshot rig ok but not as good as I have seen on tv.

Anyone have any other tips for settings on the HDS-5 or Lms 522c?
I mostly fish erie around the islands sometimes the harbors.

Thanks guys.
