Fishfinder Help

I'm thinking about purchasing a fishfinder for my parents boat. I've narrowed it down (for cost reasons) to either the Garmin 100, Garmin 100Blue, or the Humminbird Piranha 5. Not sure if I really need the upgrad to the Blue model, as most of the fishing we do is in <200 ft of water.

Anyone have any suggestions? Ideally, I'd love to be around $100, but I'm willing to head up to around $150. Do the Garmin models come with the transducer? I haven't seen a straight answer to this question anywhere.

Nick

Check out the Eagle Silver Striker. Got one last summer for $229 on sale, now they`re down to $125, comes with speed and temp sensor. I`m very happy with mine.

No advice in that price range but would suggest you make sure to see if there is any additional cost for the transducer.

Check out: http://www.brokenlegdave.com/ for the best prices on the internet.

The 100 comes with a transducer without the temp sensor.

Lowrance= Winston/Scott/Sage

Garmin=Loomis

Humminbird=Temple Fork

Eagle= made by Lowrance with slightly less quality

I would not get the "blue", if you are fishing the shallower water. I have a 240, and it's pretty good.

John,

Does that "shorefinder" reside at the CAC? Or is it called a "Juro"?

I believe that some units are available now with "castable" transducers. Just watch the screen and "sight" fish in the dark. No invisible waders needed.
