My latest purchase...

Well, after selling off some random things from my basement, I ended up with a couple hundred bucks to spend on more random things. One thing I've always been lacking is an idea of how deep my local fishing holes are. The Mass Wildlife pond maps don't cover those lakes so unfortunately the only depth finder I've had is the canoe paddle or my feet when I kick the bottom while in my float tube. That will shortly be fixed since I picked up a Bottom Line Fishin Buddy. It's only $100 and Cabela's sells a float tube mount for it for another $15. I'm planning on printing off maps and marking off depths on them. It'll take some time, but I'm the kind of guy that doesn't mind taking some time to do this.

Fishin Buddy

Anybody have any experience with one of these?

I got one of those ten or twelve years ago when they first came out. It was fine for just what you're looking to do with it. I used it in my canoe and jon boat at various times and found it to be kind of neat.

Have fun with it.

Mounts on a float tube? Pretty cool!

Here's a pic of the float tube mount:Click here

I prefer to support the Bear's Den or other local shops for the great majority of my fly fishing needs, but they don't sell everything. Sometimes you have to purchase from the Evil Empire (i.e. Cabela's, Bass Pro, etc).
