BottmLine Fish Finders

Recommended Posts

Well I am new to this board and would like some opinions about the Bottom Line fish finders. I am wanting to purchase one and I am wondering if they are worth the money. Any and all comments or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

For what you will spend for a Bottomline you can purchase 2 really good depthfinders these days.
Take a look at some of the new Eagle models-more bang for your buck than has ever before been available. I currently have the hots for the new Fish Elite 480.
This is a 480 vert pixel recording sonar, GPS w/WAAS,and chart plotter. This hot little unit has 16 level gray scale, and will digitally record sonar graphs and GPS trip details on MMC or SD memory cards. It can also use maps from either Navionics or MMC cards.
It looks as if this sweet thing will sell for around $450.
Eagle also has a Sonar/GPS that will retail for under $200 this season. These are truly good times if you are in the market for new electronics.
Take a good hard look at what the market has to offer before you plunk down your money on a Bottomline unit. grin.gif

Waterwolff,
I would be interested in taking that one that is collecting dust off your hands. What's your price? Let me know. Thanks for all the advice.

The fish finder would be for ice fishing and maybe later on a small boat.

kwkfsh,
Are you talking about a regular fish finder for a boat. How do you mount the tranducer
? Do you need a 12 volt source? If so can you use a motorcycle battery or something smaller then a car battery. Thanks for your advice.

Yes this is a boat mount unit. You did not mention that it was for icefishing. If you are looking for a unit for ice fishing then you will want to look at either a Vexilar or a Marcum flasher. grin.gif
