Hello everyone considering a finder for our trip to mn but also for basic use here in AZ. Does anyone have suggestions on portable finders that wont break the bank but are reliable? Thanks to everyone. Jeff
I have a Bottom Line Fishin' Buddy as well. I think Hummingbird bought them out though. It's not going to "find" you many fish, but it does pick them up. I use it as a depth finder/bottom reader as well. Mine takes a few fat D cells, but the newer units run on AA's. The screen and transducer are all one, long, unit so it's super portable. Definitely check them out. I'd start with eBay. Mine has the "side-finder" feature. Not sure if I'd pay extra for that now, but I do play with it if I'm floating around docks on my pontoon.
I actually just bought the humingbird Paranhamax 160 off of ebay. You can read all about it. I is basically like a normal fish finder with a carriying case and the trasducer has a suction cup to stick it to the side the boat. And it will stick to wood, aluminum, and fiberglass. I heard great reviews on it. Also a rechargeable battery. It only cost $128 with free shipping from ebay right now.

Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
