Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

De­tect­ing struc­ture on the bot­tom is an­other fea­ture that is im­prov­ing catch rates, par­tic­u­larly for those trolling or deep jig­ging for barramundi and other es­tu­ary and river species. The se­cret to suc­cess is in­ter­pret­ing what the sounder is show­ing.
