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.
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.
You can use your lake book and check for horizon makers and calculate the number of turns to your chosen spot.
Instead of using the whole map of the lake you will need to us the individual recordings.
Once you have selected your swim out of the list of areas you have mapped, open up that one.
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.
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.
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.
