    Just curious if anyone can post what pics of walleye look like on their downscan? Trying to get more familiar with my HDS12 gen3. The last two trips out when I thought I had good marks on my 2d screen I clicked over to downscan and barely saw a thing? Usually a small spec or two, nothing like I was seeing in 2d. I like the downscan for looking for higher marks but I'm afraid I'm not picking them up for some reason. Thanks, Rangerpig

    Run a split screen 2d & downscan. The walleye you see on 2d will look like a small white stick on dnscan. If it is bait it will be a bunch of little white specks. Sheephead will be white blob.

    Hmmmm, think I might need to make an adjustment, I have yet to see any " white sticks". Maybe I'm just seeing junk? I've had screen lit up on 2d with just a couple small blobs on downscan

    Mark on 2d may be 2" long but on dnscan will be maybe 1/8" stick. But it will be in same relative position. Sidescan same thing but you are seeing 80' on each side of boat. Want to make a turn? Helps you decide which way
