    Default Recognizing Thermocline

    do you actually see it on the screen or simply the absence of life below a certain point ?

    I see it on my screen (HDS Gen 3), and usually no fish below it. Screen looks almost "fogged" from where it starts on down. But the missing fish below are the give-away to it.

    Turn your sensitivity all the way up or nearly all the way on your 2d sonar and you should see it appear very easily

    I usually see it on the screen as a "fuzzy" line that stays at the same depth.

    Not all lakes develop a thermocline !!

    I turn up my gain/sensitivity to find it. The big 4 is running around 15' fish where the water depth goes from 15 to deeper water, The magic depth yesterday was 21'.

    Wait .... WHAT ??? You're supposed to fish ABOVE the thermocline, so if the thermocline is at 15', then why is the magic depth SIX FEET BELOW that ??
