Sonar clutter after hookset


Okay so this was happening more often than ever this fishing season.  It seems that just about every fish that I put the hook set on and either it's a miss or the fish unbuckled from it really quick.  There is then a huge sonar clutter.  Is it like they regurgitated their stomach content or something?

Probally just picking up  turbulence the fish created after yanking on him with hook set. I get readings like that while trolling after i cross paths of a boat  that had previously trolled across in front of me.

Try turning the sensitivity down and sharpen hooks.

X's 2, sensitivity for the clutter and hooks for the hookups, also maybe lessen the hookset pull they are known as papered lips for a reason.
