    Default What are these marks?

    What might these track like marks be, on the right side? I noticed them in a number of areas on my last trip. Doesn't seem like weeds or rocks. This is a natural pond so I don't think they are man made.

    The shore and a pretty heavy weed line would be on the left, so the right is headed out in to the pond basin.

    Bottom picture top right looks like a rocks with a shadows or maybe a rocky ledge! But I don't know nothing about these new electronics. Hope you get an answer.

    I'll have to play around a bit with the sensitivity and see if they reflect the same energy as the rest of that area. I would think if they were rock they'll highlight much quicker than what looks like the basic bottom. Maybe a vein of clay type material? My first thought was underwater crop circle type stuff that only the original aliens could decipher. Turtle race tracks?

    I replayed that recording and boosted the SI sensitivity up. The dark areas never really got brighter while the rest of the floor did so I'm pretty sure they are not rocks. Seems to be better at absorbing the sonar energy than the rest of the area.

    Not sure about the dark areas ... but the light marks in the water column look like you were paddling ...

    Correct, I'm the sole source of propulsion.

    I guess you got to go down there and see for yourself.
