  1. I use 10# weights and do not have to increase my gain at all.  Factory settings SHOULD take that into consideration.  Now, if your speed is 2.7 or higher you may way to increase the gain or adjust your transducer angle.  Your weight and probe may be almost outside the angle of the transducer???   

    My probe was brand new last year and the battery connections were not PERFECT.  Just saying....there should be zero movement once you snap those batteries in.  Mine were not perfect and I lost signal all the time.

  2. I have had the exact problem.  1st thing I did was replace the batteries.  This appeared to fix the problem.  When I noticed that it was still sending intermittent signals I looked closer at the battery pack to find that all 4 batteries were not snapped into place correctly.  They APPEARED to be in place.  But if I pushed on the batteries they were not snapped in correctly.  In order to correct this I wrapped all 4 batteries with electric tape TIGHTLY.  Haven't had a problem since. 

    If this is not the problem, call the manufacturer and they will walk you through re-setting the gain back to factory settings. 

  3. Well, the weather man wasn't quite accurate.  Sigh.  My buddy and I left Olcott harbor and headed east.  We fished 9-12 FOW all the way just past Keg Creek.  We used spoons and Rapalas.  The only thing we got was wet.  Once we turned around and headed west we caught a nice, big brown on a firetiger Rapala and later a small, pretty steelhead on a hammered Cleo.  The water cleared up a bit since the weekend.
