You love to fish. You have always been interested in a Fish Finder but don't know anything about them or where to start. You are not alone. That is why at Bass Pro Shop we have the expertise to help you figure out which model is best for you. With so many to look at I took a trip down to our Marine Department and asked them for their recommendations.
For someone just starting out, consider the Garmin Echo 150 Fishfinder. Great price, easy to use with sonar depths to 1300'. This unit comes with tilt, swivel mount, transducer, trolling motor clamp and transom mount. Check out the reviews.
The Garmin Echo Map 50s GPS/Sonar Chartplotter Combo has a 5" display with preloaded US lakes. Two micro SD card slots and is very user friendly. Great value for the money and it performs well.
A little more expensive is the Lowrance HDS 5 Gen 2 Fishfinder/GPS Chartplotter. This unit also has a 5" display with wide angle viewing. Advanced memory and high definition mapping makes this one you may want to look in to.
New this year is the Garmin Echo Map 70 DV Fishfinder/GPS Combo. The 7" touchscreen is nice and it comes preloaded with Lake VU HD maps. This unit has advanced HD-ID & down VU all in one transducer. With a 10HZ receiver it provides position and heading updates 10x per second.
Whether you are just starting out with a fish finder or want to upgrade, stop on down to see us. We will be happy to outfit you with what fits you best.
