Default "How To" publication for sonar

Can anyone source a good manual for using fishfinders? I still have trouble (after three years!) setting mine up correctly. Sometimes I see fish and catch none, sometimes I don't see fish and catch plenty, and sometimes I see and catch! I have the feeling that I just happen to have my unit set up right, but only for a certain depth/water condition.
My unit is an Eagle Accura 240.

ricksea-

Re-read the manual, or maybe read it for the first time. Jot down the questions you have or the things that you do not understand.

Raymarine puts out a series of on-line videos:

These are short, very basic and geared toward using Raymarine equipment, but you would be surprised what "secret" they uncover.

You can get a better understanding of the terminology by reading:

And lastly, try BENNETT MARINE to see if they have an instructional video for your specific unit:

Hope this helps and welcome to THT!

Take a look at this: http://www.lowrance.com/Tutorials/so...utorial_01.asp Lowrance and Eagle are the same...Lowrance use to have a great publication for Fire Department and Rescue/Recovery on how to interpret the readings to find a body underwater. The publication had a lot of tips on fine tuning...if you know what I mean. If the above does not help...drop them an e-mail.
