Rec's On Depthfinder For My 10' Twin Troller

Recommended Posts

Anyone have recommendations for a new electronic for my small boat? I fish mainly ponds or small creeks off rivers with it - I currently have an old Eagle 168 EX and would love to upgrade to something with DSI.. Let me know if you have experience with something that you really like... Thanks..

Try a humminbird. They have everything from basic models to the full out color, side imaging, GPS ones. For what you are doing I would recommend one of the black and whites with a meter for water temperature on it. Its not the most basic but just about it. I have a humminbird on a fifteen foot aluminum boat we keep for fishing places like that and thats what we use and have been for years.

I really like my lowrance elite 4x dsi. seemed to come in at a lower price than the humming birds. the detail with the dsi is amazing. sometimes i just troll around to see what i can see as far as cover then mark the spots on my navionics app on my Iphone so i can fishem later.

The Lowance DSI units are good companions for a regular sonar unit if you fish. Pretty much worthless while fishing.

The imaging technology takes movement to "scan" so it you "just troll around to see what i can see", it works well.

If you want a single unit that has the down imaging and regular sonar, then the Humminbird DI units are the way to go. They are available in screen sizes: 3.5", 4,5", 5", 7", 8" and 10.4"
