What FIsh FInder SHould I Get For a Kayak?

8 posts in this topic

I was realy close to buying a Vexilar or similar flasher this year for ice fishing, however I have decided to hold off and see if I can find something that would work year round. I fish out of a kayak on metro lakes most of the time, but spend a lot of time on the ice. I like the idea of a flasher so I can see my bait in relation to the fish.

Is there a good protable/battery operated unit that would work well for both situations?

I have used my Vex with the Ice-set up for what you described with pretty good results. I did cange to a high-speed ducer set up with the ducer bolted to a bracket and that helped a ton. The HS ducer is about 80 bucks.

Lowrance X67c or M68c. Both are color and both have a flasher mode. M68c is a sonar/GPS combo that may work well if you don't already have a GPS.

im not overly concerned with a tipover. the yak is petty stable and if I dumped it would be a pretty major mistake. thanks for the replys thus far. ive heard that vexilar used to make a boundary waters edition finder and I am rather interested, but cant find out what features it had, and if it had a flasher type interface. anyone know anything about them?

I agree, I have the x67c and I use it both ice and open water fishing.

The Boundary Waters Edition was a LCD graph type of fish finder. It used AA batteries and was pretty compact so it was light and easy to carry, hence the Bdub edition. No flasher mode.
