Default 741xs problem with shallow water

I have a 741xs and it seems to lose bottom at shallow depth. At around 3 to 4 ft it registers ? Is this normal?

from a sonar view select menu then gain and turn it down

Once you are out into deeper water you will prob want to turn it back up.

Also be sure your software version is current (6.50). Software changes have enhanced shallow water sonar performance.
