    Side view is angular on all transducers. I have a Garmin and used to have Humminbird. In 3 feet of water you're not going to see very far. Just a few feet at best.

    Thanks. Was wondering how the view would be in the intracoastal or back canals underneath the docks

    It works fine in the channel and deeper ledges, say over 6 feet. Also works well under bridges. Docks are okay if your close but deeper is better.
