Hey guys, i need help picking out a fish finder. I'd like to spend around $250 or so. I want a decent one or best for my money. I have a Princecraft ungava and a yamaha 15hp. Last year we hit bottom in the fraser a few times. I would like to avoid this with a finder. Can someone recommend one? Portable or mount, not sure which i should go with. My motor is a non charge no battery model. Thanks

1st. I had was a Humming bird...and dragged the transducer too many times and it began giving trouble.....lesson learned, Don't drag you transducer. lol
#2. is an Eagle similar model to last posting. I much prefer it. Better interface and better battery life. I've been able to get 8 + trips out of fresh Durecells.
Reads well even when running, much better than the hummingbird.
I'm running 14Ft. Princecraft Yukon w/15 hrs (4 stroke) Merc.
perfect for running out to bars.
I'm looking for one of those nice Fraser River anchors.Anyone know who welds them up?

Thanks guys. I was looking at one of those hummingbird piranhamax 230 for around $230. I need a model that will read accurate depth at speed, well as fast as my 15hp will push my 12ft boat. How do those eagle's work at say 15mph?

My wife got me a hummingbird fishin buddy 120 for my birthday. So far it has been great for me. Seems to be very accurate and simple to use. I've taken it out a few times an the batteries still seem strong. The only downside is when traveling at higher speed in the boat it bangs around in it's holder. But at slow trolling speeds it works great. She also got me the attachment to use it on my belly boat.
