Ever wonder what Fish look like on your sonar? In this video I show you what fish (specifically Crappie) look like on this Humminbird Helix Ice fishing sonar. I break down the basics of how to identify fish on sonar, where your fish finder is looking, and add a few fish finder tips and tricks to help you put more fish on the ice. I walk through how sonar works and the Cone Angle (what is a fish finder viewing) which is important to understand whether you are in a boat or on the ice.
The fish finder is set to 200kHz, which is a standard frequency for most sonar units. At this frequency, the area your sonar is cover is 1/3 the total depth. So, if you’re in 30ft of water, your sonar is scanning a 10ft wide cone of the lake bottom.
