A few hints to decoding the Fish Finder screen:
The number on the bottom left is how deep the water currently is.
The numbers going down the right side is the surface of the ocean (0) leading down to the ocean bottom usually marking every 100ft.
The closer the color is to red (red= most concentrated vs. black/blue= least concentration of bait/fish) the more food in the water.
|165ft of water and a good grouping of fish within the first 100ft below the ocean surface|
|Some fish in the depths of the ocean below 100ft|
the entire water column filled with fish starting just below the
surface down to the bottom of the ocean 186ft below the boat!|
The ocean provided some great whale sightings and a perfect way to avoid the sweltering heat on land today. Thanks to our returning passengers and to all our first time whale watchers as it was another good day to be on Jeffreys Ledge!
