Hi fellow maggot drowners.This could open me up to a few quips. but whos bothered on a great site like this.Being a member of the Broad Ambition restoration team, the guys were talking the other night about putting a fishfinder on board. Well as I have never used one before ,thought I would post this to see if anyone has got one. My thinking is when BA finally gets perky chugging,we will be covering a lot of water where we have never fished before. So are they any good, what price,what make,what do we look for etc, ect. Look forward to your comments.   Tight Lines.  Steve.

I don't want to put off people with current knowledge.

But if you click on "search" and put "fish finder" in the Keywords box... and tick the "Show individual messages" box.. and look forever... there are a lot of mentions to read through.

Steve,

I have found the best place to look is in the water. Havent seen many on land and none driving down the winding country lanes.

Now if you need a gadget to tell you that, well. No I better not say it LOL

Yes but I bet they werent alive. Must say, they are very nice from there.

Oh yes, if thats 100 yards I would say its 75 miles to Yarmouth from Brundall LOL

Hi Steve
We have a Navman fish finder on our Quicksilver ,it is quite a neat peice of kit and not to expensive not only does it find fish it shows useful information like depth of water, speed, temp, etc well worth the money.

Regards JOHN

Hi, While BreamSlayer is on the hunt for a suitable fish finder, please be aware that we do not want a transducer that is a thru-hull type. We would prefer one that is temporarily attached to the side of the hull and then brought back inboard when not in use.  There is a Boat Jumble next month near to our neck of the woods at Carlton Towers, after you knowledgeable members have guided us in the right direction we hope to buy on there. (BreamSlayer - get your wallet ready)  -  Griff

One of these decades we WILL finish Broad Ambition !!

There is only one model of this type and it doubles if not trebles as other bits of kit on or around the boat (have a look around other threads).

I find if you dangle the kids by their feet they have a much better chance of seeing the fish, if you feeling really cheerful you could give them a snorkel to aid breathing Although this is not essential LOL

Hi Steve mate,i have a fish finder on Josh,but never seem to use it,i prefer just so sit and fish and await what ever may swim along.
The depth finder is very handy though.

One day i hope a certain MR C passes by in his dinghy
