Think about it…
A new fish finder can be an exciting tool with all of the imaging, gps, and sonar features they posess nowadays. It can be a bit overwhelming when trying to figure out which one you should buy. A lot of reviews posted on the internet often show bias towards one brand or the other.
Three general tips for buying a new fish finder:
- Before you decide which fish finder you want to research, go into it with an open mind. Try not to let friends or other people influence your decision too much. Take it all with a grain of salt. It should be your decision.
- Decide how much you are willing to spend. A fish finder with all the bells and whistles may be great to show off to your friends, but if you don’t use all of those bells and whistles, why pay extra for them?
- Look for a fish finder that excels in the type of fishing you will do most. If you fish lots of structure, a unit with side or down imaging can be very beneficial. If you fish a lot flat bottom areas, a basic sonar may be all you need.
After you’ve taken these three tips into consideration, you can shorten the time you are researching, and increase your productivity on the water.
