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.
