Bottomline Sidefinder



Are these sidefinders any good? Do they really show if fish are to the side of a boat?

There is a 1200 for sale at a reasonable price and I was thinking of picking one up.

Thanks for any info. Finns

How good of a deal? The really cheap ones are, well, really cheap. smile.gif Knew a guy who had one (he bought it for under a $100) and it melted one warm July day. No talk, the sun just melted the LCD and ruined the unit.

As for the sidefinding feature, I'm pretty sure it just shoots out a really wide angled transducer beam, covering a bigger area but losing sensitivity in the bargain.
