Deeper Part 8

Once you have mapped your chosen lake, you have a few options when you arrive for your next trip.  I do both depending on the time available to me when I arrive.

Option one

Get the Deeper out and flick it out into your chosen area and double check your spot.  This is a very good idea in the summer months when there is plenty of weed growth.  It’s also very handy in the winter to find any new areas that the carp have been cleaning, silty spots, if the carp have been digging up the bottom and making any new feature.

Option two

You can use your lake book and check for horizon makers and calculate the number of turns to your chosen spot.

Step 1

Instead of using the whole map of the lake you will need to us the individual recordings.



Step 2

Once you have selected your swim out of the list of areas you have mapped, open up that one.




Step 3

Now scroll along the sonar reading until you have found the spot in the swim you want to cast to.  This will be marked by the Deeper image on the screen.


Step 4

I find it best to zoom in on the swim and the press the ruler icon on the right-hand side (just below the satellite icon).  This will make it easier to view where you are on the map and calculate the distance from the bank to your spot.


Step 5

Once you have the distance, you can then zoom out to find a horizon maker.  If not then you can always use the night mode on the Deeper and then you will be able to find the right feature on the horizon.


Step 6



About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
