i'm thinking of buying a portable fish finder to use when i don't bring my boat and use the PWF boats at the lakes. having fished with a fish finder all my life, i feel lost without that screen.
my first decision is to get either a small one (garmin striker 4 as an example) with a small battery and adapter for the trolling motor mount, or to get one of the floating buoy type (made my Deeper or Lowrance) that you use your phone or tablet as a screen. The buoy type is a little cheaper, but i'm concerned that they are not "good" enough to see brush and fish.
anybody have any experience or comments about this? in particular, have you used one of the buoy types, and what did you think about the detail they provide?
