Fish Finders Review

Updated on July 4, 2015

Go Where the Fish Are!

If you are a fisherman then you probably want to be able to locate the fish. There are many ways to do that, but one of the best is using modern technology in the way of a fish finder. This device will help you locate the fish as well as tell you the depth of the water and what kind of bottom is under your boat.

A fish finder uses an electrical impulse by way of sonar to show the location of the fish. It turns this energy into a visual display on your fish finder along with whatever else may be under the water. This can be an added advantage if you can avoid deadheads and other debris in the water.

So the next time you go fishing, remember to take your fish finder along with all your fishing gear and you will be able to come home with a great catch and you won't have to make up stories about the one that got away!

With this Fish Finder you won't have to spend countless hours just waiting for the fish to bite. This fish finder is designed for both the amateur and professional fisherman. Not only does it show the fish but also the depth of the water. Use it on the ocean, river or lake for finding where the fish are hiding!

This fish finder uses sonar to locate the fish by sending a sound wave through the water. The reflected signal interprets the location, size and composition of the object and displays it on the screen.


Fish Finders: A Great Fishing Buddy!

If you are into fishing you are probably familiar with fish finders. These little gadgets can save you hours of frustration on the water. Not only do they show you were the fish are, they can tell you the depth of the water and what kind of bottom you are floating over.

Fish finders don't have to be expensive. They range in price from under $100 to over a $1,000; so you can spend what you can afford.

How Do Fish Finders Work?
There aren't a lot of parts when it comes to fish finders. Basically the transducers which is usually installed at the bottom of the boat or over the side of the boat emits sound waves (sonar) which are received back to the fish finder which uses the electrical signals to give you a display of what is under your boat.

Some fish finders have a color display which is great because it will give you a more accurate description of the fish and other objects in the water. Just remember that these little pieces of technology are not full proof but will at least will help you locate the fish.

      Solid review. However, for my money, the Lowrance HDS-12 Gen 3 is the best sonar fish finder available. Check out my review.
