    Get a TM150 transducer and then itís just a matter of moving
    The transducer up or down a little. YouTube has videos on transducer placement.

    Most good FF will mark fish at higher speeds but it's usually a matter of getting the transducer aimed correctly. I can see fish on my older HDS on plane but it's tough to tell a school of fish from interference sometimes. For the best resolution you just need a good FF that will utilize a CHIRP transducer. I think the Airmar P-66 I a good transom mount CHIRP unit.

    i'm not a pro... but i think both lowerance and birds do good. I think the biggest influence is transducer placement and position.

    Of the numerous discussions I've read on marking fish at higher speed,is achieved from position and angle of transducer.Think most units can be used to achieve desired results.

    Made some minor adjustments to the transducer location and as I understand it 80 mgh is the best setting for high speed use correct?
