Kayak Fishing - How to Read a Fish Finder

A fish finder on a kayak greatly enhances your fishing experience and is a great asset. When you are new to fish finders, understanding what is on the screen can be confusing and it takes a while to learn how to use it effectively. 


The video below goes through how I use my Garmin Echo 550c coloured fish finder to identify structure and fish. There are recommendations on settings such as fish symbols and dual beam split frequency. There is a section on interpreting colour as hard returns, medium returns, and weak returns. In addition, sections looking at recognising structure such as rock, wreck, and weed, identifying shoals of fish and individual fish along with using the finder for vertical jigging with lures.
