Author Topic: fish finders

am thinking of buying a fish finder. i want something small as i fish from my belly boat mostly.
anyone have any suggestions or things to look for. i want something simple to work, something a mechanically challenged person can operate/read and not too expensive.

i did call them. works fine for a while but they catch on!

Several times on fly fishing missions in a belly boat I've used Humminbird with sideimaging to spot surface feeding fish.

Basically idea is that you can slowly rotate in a belly boat to scan the area around and once you spot a fish - you would know direction and distance, then you land a dry fly exactly there. I had a decent success with this approach on Alice Lake, Elbow Lake, Levette Lake and other places. The best time to try this is after 5:00 pm and till the sunset, when fish are feeding on the surface.
