I have a Huminbird wrist fish finder. Great company, but the remote unit is a little succeptable to damage. Had a tough time getting a new unit.

So, my advise would be to keep a look out for replacement of all components.

Also, it seems, the unit is not entirely portable. You have to fix it on a boat or something. Would not be able to cast it from shore or with a fishing line - which offers huge flexibility.

Best of Luck!! When it does find fish -which it will, its most exciting.

Cheers.

Hi Santosh,

I have posted before regarding fishfinders on the forum. Can't remember where but :oops:
If this is the first fishfinder for you it's a start! You're ability to use it/ or it's ability to help you will be very limited.Like with every bit of technology.... things only get better and more expensive.

When I started using sounders I was very excited about 'seeing' fish under me. Not any more. I now use my sounder more to pick up structure that has potential to hold fish, take GPS coordinates, work out a pattern and troll within/around the fish holding structure.When I'm trolling, I'm looking at the sounder, know what the tide's doing, looking for bait schools/birds/dolphin, floating debris etc...

I'm not about to start off a discourse here about fish finders.... so my advice to you would be to go ahead and use it, but with a Handheld GPS. Mark where you see fish and troll in the area. No point seeing fish once and not being able to find them again!

Mighty Marlin.
