It could be the angle your radar is mounted. If it is angles up in front ( may be caused by the bow raising while trolling) you may be shooting over the birds when heading toward them.
Thanks thats a possibility. It also could be too low correct. When I have noticed the problem its been at idle (7 knts). Will have to go back and confirm how well it is picking up markers, etc in front. Generally when using the radar I'm in open water running and it seems to be fine but will confirm.
