Rick, hi!

Fish finders certainly work, but if you are planning to use them in a shallow lake (less then 20 m) - you are mostly limited to depth graphs, rather then the fish, as they will flee away, before they are noticed by the equipment.

What proved to be quite effective are fish finders with side view, so that you can scan around the boat rather then under the boat. It is especially fun in a float tube as you can easily spin.

For some unknown reason, most vendors stopped to produce fish finders with side view option


And one more comment about new generation remote/radio fish finders (when sensor is being used like a float and you can see what's down there) - great idea, but absolutely useless (I played with two such devices - waste of money). They don't work well in normal conditions and become nuisance on a choppy water.

Hope it helps.
