Lowrance - fishing mode question

For those with an Elite / HDS FF, what fishing mode do you select when fishing LJ 60'-150' depth. Most Lowrance videos on youtube adress shallow fresh water settings.

Thanks

ironically

fresh water, which limits it to 1000' ft. the other option salt is for very deep water (up to w 10000' ft. ). shallow water would be in fresh water conditions 80' ft or under. somebody else chime in, if I got the numbers wrong? the main objective is to cap the unit from trying to look beyond what is necessary.

found it on web

google fishing modes lowrance. information straight from manual came up. fresh water mode ls for 400 ft and under. general mode is 1000 ft and under. yes general will work and is probably the default setting. but, you want to prevent the unit from trying to look farther than is necessary. obviously most inshore fishing is around 120' up to maybe 250'.

with this palette also after having watched a video on you tube from a lowrance pro staff member. this selection marks the hard bottom with a dark brown color and makes returns stand out more.
