I have used the Lowrance Structure scan for 2 years and for detail on bottoms down to about 80 feet (800KHz) it is wonderful picture. I use it when anchoring in unknown areas to check the bottom for stuff that will fowl an anchor. Using the cursor you can mark things on the bottom to avoid and if using sidescan look off to the side to see the bottom profile toward shore. I'm still learning to interpret the return. In fishing, the side scan can tell you which side of the boat the bait ball is on. Seeing it on downscan doesn't mean you can drive back over it again.
