Looking for fish finder recomendations..

Buddy and I just bought a nice Used.... 16 ft. jon boat with 30 hp. jet. Would like to get a fish/depth finder with water temp also in it. ANyone using one that reads real good and easy to understand for a dummy. Would like to stay under $300.00 bucks. Thanks.

Re: Looking for fish finder recomendations..

I've always liked Humminbird. I had one on my old boat that worked well I think it was the 581 series. it was just under $300

On my new boat I have a full color Lowrance LCX-18C. it came with the boat. it took a little figuring out but it's a really nice unit and I really like it.

Since you're located close to bass pro it might be a good idea to go there and fondle a few to see how it works for you.

Humminbird makes good machines for a good price. I beat mine to death and it works very well after 8 years.

Re: Looking for fish finder recomendations..

I bought a portable one from cabelas for the kayak. Humminbird something. Came with portable case where the finder mounts, battery, and transducer with suction cup. Entire setup cost $200.

It's black and white, has water temp and depth. Its all I need.

Re: Looking for fish finder recomendations..

I've got a lorance x-4 pro on my pontoon. has water temp,depth,batter voltage,low water alarm, 2 different fish id's. paid just over $100.00 bucks for it. it's not color but not bad for the price.

Green County,
Thanks...Thats what we ended up with the X4 Pro. Seems to work fine but trouble reading fish on it. Maybe I'm just not going over any fish. Guy at Bass Pro set it up for me.
