I know this is a cruisers forum, but I've been around a while and this is the only group I'm a part of that I would think would know such a thing!
I've only got a small fiberglass fishing
boat so far, so still a CLOD if anything, but I would like to do more fishing
and spearfishing freediving etc from the boat.
I would like to spend a good bit on a fishfinder
etc, 15-1600 ish is fine.
My primary focus will be seeing details of how the bottom looks etc. What kind of rock structures there are, bottom composition, etc.
It has to work well in the ocean and in using some of the lesser units, I've noticed the depth
reading sucks past a couple hundred feet, and the sonar picture basically becomes useless when the motor
is running and the boat is moving.
Anyone have any recommendations on fishfinder/sonar in the $1500 price
range that has great bottom definition, decent depth
ability, warranty all that jazz?
Thanks everyone you guys are always helpful.
