I went back to Lake Coeur d’Alene last weekend. The water was still at the lower winter level and the visibility is about half of what it usually is.
First dive I mostly played with the big rocks in the shallows. I tried to practice some precise maneuvers by going in the gaps between rocks. Obviously I still need a lot more practice.
I started playing with the advanced Ping360 settings around 53:58 to see how the image changed.
Second dive was more interesting. My dad was there with me so we went out to the little water pump to see how much algae was on it, then I went exploring around the area to look at logs. It was a good environment to demonstrate the basics of how to read the sonar image.
It’s interesting to note that the GoPro can hear the motor in the Ping360 whenever I disarm the thrusters, like at 16:32.
I should have some access to a boat on this lake this summer, so there should be some great adventures in the next 6 months. We know where 1 shipwreck is and I’m going to have to do some research to see if I can locate more.
