Fish Finder Recommendation ?

Recommended Posts

Dear Readers:

I mostly fish from the shore. Lately, I have been thinking about getting myself a “FishFinder”. However, I am not sure which one to get and how would it work from the shore? The main reason for usage would be to give me a BOTTOM STRUCTURES AND DEPTHS. (I am not really concern with fish whereabouts) I am seeking some recommendations and advice? If you have one, could you please recommend/advise and share your experiences? (My budget is nothing more than $300.00). If not, is there something else that would give me bottom structures and depths at simultaneously?

Thank You.

A map and a jig. No electronic device exists that can do what you want from shore.

I'd save up for a while and buy a cheap jon boat if you can find one. Being out on the water without electronics is definitely better than being on shore with a fish finder. So if you have something to transport it with I'd try for the boat.
