Some 1198 screen shots
« on: September 13, 2015, 02:26:15 PM »
Finally got around to down loading some screen shots.

Found this a few weeks ago but only caught a few dinks off it



Heres a few pics of what it looked like last week.  Caught fish as fast as I could get the jig down.

I know the timber shots arent the best as i have seen way better from other guys where you can count every fish on the tree.  However after driving around in trees long enough you can definitely tell when there are fish on the trees vs not.  The trees seem washed out when the fish arent there but real bright white when they are.  There is one graph shot above that actually shows the contrast between barren and loaded trees.   I will keep on playing with the settings and hopefully get to where those fish jump off the graph.

I just hope to get my 999 to function this well once I get to use it.

Sent them. 

I usually end up on 12 on sensitivity and 8 on contrast when shallow (<20') looking at brush piles.  For scanning the deeper timber usually 14 and 8 seems to show fish better on the trees on Palestine for my graph.  Just playing with the settings while youre looking around really helps you get a feel for it and it doesnt take too long

Since I only fish Joe Pool Lake the tips are worth much more to me.  I need to learn how to use the 999 si function to justify what I paid for it.  Then I can justify buying the new trolling motor  I want.   :ROFLMAO

From SK:
My settings are very close to what this chart says however I constantly change my settings.
The chart speed always 1to 2 faster than boat speed, the sensitivity has to be adjusted according to the hardness of the bottom, harder bottoms require lower sensitivity & softer require high sensitivity.
The contrast sorta works hand in hand with the sensitivity it's no different than the contrast on a black & white tv to high it'll wash out to low it be to dark.
These three settings must be adjust for the area you're in. On my home lake I've pretty much got my units dialed in for the different areas but be prepared to adjust these three on the fly.
The best thing to do is go over a area with known structure with the screen spotted 1 to two faster than your boat speed (try 3mph boat speed & 4 on chart speed), once the structure is in the frame hit the direction button to freeze the screen, stop your boat & play with the sensitivity getting the best clarity & then adjust the contrast to adjust the brightness that's best for your eyes.
Wish I was closer to you I'd meet up to assist you.
One more very important thing is make sure your batteries are fully charged & you have good connections between your unit & battery. These units don't work with a flip on low power....
I woke up this morning.  At my age, that is a GOOD thing!

Side imaging would be super cool. Maybe they will eventually come down in price :o

Just an FYI guys, I believe they are clearancing out the 1199 and other 99 series right now with some up to $1000 off.  Would imagine that wont last long.  I'm actually thinking about changing out mine for one of those since mine is getting older.

Getting a 10" screen 1199 'Bird for under $1200 is a mighty good deal! Penwell did some searching and found 1 with a flush mount kit & a remote for like $1178! The 2 "extra's" are worth nearly $200 so that brought the 1199 cost down to under $1000! If I wasn't a Die Hard Lowrance man, I'd jump all over that!

Is this one store or all stores running this clearance?

Found the 1099 for $1298 here.http://www.thedigitaloasis.com/Humminbird-1199ci-Hd-Si-Side-Imaging-with-Transom-Mount-Transducer-Rc1-Remote_p_32566.html?utm_source=googlepla&utm_medium=cse&utm_term=700058-1&gclid=COL2o7PsocgCFc-FfgodwGsLwg#.Vg1z82votPY 

Not quite as low as mentioned but the best price I could find.

Now I wish I hadn't bought the 999 in March for $1000.   I would definitely have paid the extra money to get the larger screen and other features.   But I don't even have the 999 on the boat yet so there is no way I can justify buying another fish finder at this time.  :(

I gave $1250 for mine & that includes shipping from U.M.....
I had to use a coupon for $250 off their listed price, if anyone wants in on that let me know & I'll give them the coupon code....

It would be nice but I think I had better wait another year before buying another fish finder.  I'm currently trying to convince my self that my current trolling motor with 20 hours on it isn't adequate and needs to be replaced.   :ROFLMAO

Or figure out how I can use my bow mounted trolling motor on the rear of my pontoon and claim I need two trolling motors for the pontoon, one on the bow and one on the stern.   :ROFLMAO

Yeah I'm working on a new kayak ATM. Plus that's a lot of real estate on a tiny boat.
