Default First, thanks for your help.

When fishing in salt water at 35 to 100 ft. should I have unit set up on 83 HZ or 200 HZ??

You could use 83 kHz at 35 feet and maybe even at 100' in the salt with good results, but you should try both and use what you like best.

I'd would think that 200 kHz would provide the best results at those depths. 200 has a narrower cone and provides greater detail at that depth range. 83 kHz has a wider cone and more bottom coverage, but at the expense of target separation and detail.

83 kHz for looking at bottom contour to identify structure or ledges...then run back over any spots using 200 kHz and a little zoom if you want a closer look...just IMHO...

Just remember the 83 kHz will have a wider cone which will provide wider coverage as the depth increases. So if you go back over a spot with the 200 kHz tuned in, you may have to look around a little bit to lock in a specific piece of bottom structure...since its cone will be narrower...
