Very affordable fishfinder?

4 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I am looking for a low-cost fishfinder. I just need accurate depth reading really.

Anyone use the Eage Cuda?

Yep, I do. I have the 168. I use it on my canoe. I have the transducer set up to shoot through the hull, and it works pretty good.

It is pretty basic. It'll give you depth, show fish, and show variations in bottom composition. It's also pretty user friendly, so it's a good "entry-level" fish finder. Heck, if I can use it without swearing, it's pretty easy to use.

I got it used... You can usually find plenty of Eagles on various classified and auction sites, often for less than $50.

I picked up a little hand held hawkeye fish finder for ice fishing from a classified site and it works great. It gives me an accurate depth and gives me an idea of the level that the fish are hanging at. It is very portable with just a little hand held lcd screen and a cord with a transducer at the end. It has worked great this winter for scouting out locations with the right depths and where the fish are at. We used it well we were catching crappies and we could mark fish on the top that the neighboring fish house could not mark with his vex.

I had a cuda, but it failed after about 2 seasons. This year I'm getting the open water kit for my vex.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
