Fish finder preference

Recommended Posts

I also have a Bird 35. If I would do it again, I would get the 45 or 55. I miss having some kind of backlighting for the depth and the fact that the 45 and 55 have more power and at least one of them comes with a cover that retails for nearly $50. With all that said, it isn't half bad, considering what I paid for it and the dual freq. transducer. No problems with it so far.

Hey give him a break, he's only posted 11 times and may not have seen the long threads from years past about how the old Vex FL18 is the best fish finder ever made! grin

I agree with Leech, no....not the 18 part.......lol ..... but give the guy a break....almost every subject has been beaten down like a dead horse wink Any flasher no matter the brand/model is going to put you on a different level as compared to without having one..... as compared to the level difference between the the various flashers. I picked up a used old school versa showdown without the updates, last year for the kidlet, for less than a hundred bucks, that has been my new go to, because he always grabs mine because he thinks it is better because I catch more fish than him........

I would say the Marcum LX series sonars. I don't have one but sure wish I did. Quiet, easy to read, heated display. I've seen old Pro's with Vexilars that still have a hard time figuring out how deep they are. Absolutely no problem or hassle to figure out depth of fish or bottom with a flat screen sonar. I use an old Lowrance LMS but it has no heated screen so it works best in the heated portable. For hole hopping I use a Showdown which is so easy my 8 year old nephew learned how to use it within an hour.
