Thread: Fish finders

    Default Fish finders

    Hey all it's time for me to select a new fish finder for my new to me 21-ft used hewescraft jet. I'm looking to spend less than $1,000 but want a nice unit. I currently have a Garmin on my 14-footer and have been over all very happy with it.

    My question is with the new offerings from the major manufacturers what you guys recommend. I realize everyone has their own favorite brand but I'm more after UHD down imaging vrs side scan. I am not a big time bass fisherman I love to fish kokanee, but would also like to someday be able to target walleye, and possibly land locked kings.

    I fish dworshak primarily and am just not sure if UHD down imaging will even be a benefit in 400 feet of water. Same with side scan in a body of water that deep and wide.

    I am having the same question with my Heix 8 that I bought a few months ago. At this time, I am not pleased nor am I happy.

    What don't you like about the Helix 8 you have? Just curious. I have a brand new Helix 7 and have had some things I don't like about it, but it does a nice job with down imaging and side imaging works pretty well but only down about 50 or so feet and about 60 feet or so each side. Really haven't put it through its paces yet, gotta wait till spring.
