Fish finder recommendation for a Coleman Bass Classic boat

10 posts in this topic

I am in the market for a affordable finder for my pond jumper bass classic 10ft boat. I have been looking and I am unable to make a decision on either a portable unit or a fixed unit. I was hoping for some feedback on units people have put on similar boats or even canoes or kayaks. Budget is under $200. What should I consider? Here is a link from the coleman webpage with more info on the boat.

Thanks

Must not be able to put a link in. It is similar to a bass raider boat.

I've seen the fishing buddy on sale/clearance at several big stores. I've also seen what appears to be the new hummingbird portable model that looks very similar to the fishing buddy.

Johnson Outdoors bought Cannon and Bottomline a few years ago. They discontinued Bottomline, but kept the Fishin Buddy under the Humminbird brand now.

Johnson Outdoors owns Minn Kota, Cannon, Humminbird, Eureka (camping equipment), Scubapro, Uwatec (diving equipment), Old Town (canoes and kayaks), Ocean Kayak, Necky Kayaks, Dimension Kayaks, Carlisle Paddles, Silva compasses, & a few others.

My son uses a Fishing Buddy on his Float Tube - I think he likes it - although it's a bit clunky to mount on that boat.

I'd take a look on hsolist for a used one, the Eagle fishmark units are good quality and a great price.

I was trying to stay away from the fishing buddy style. Basically it comes down to what transducer style will work best for me. Will the suction cup style hold on a plastic boat or would I be better off mounting one on the boat itself or the trolling motor. I want a unit that is more detailed than the baseline eagles. Features like depth, water temp, and good fish marking abilities is about all I am worried about. Thanks again everyone.
