What to Look For in a Fishfinder

We take a look at key points to consider when beginning your search for a new fishfinder.

There are three main factors to consider when shopping for a fishfinder:

  • The size of your boat
  • The type of fishing you do – bottom fishing? Trolling? Shallow-water casting?
  • Your budget

In most cases, anglers opt for a multi-function display unit (MFD) rather than a standalone fishfinder. An MFD typically comes with a built-in fishfinder and chartplotter. Many will also hook up to a radar, autopilot, thermal camera, and other types of electronics aboard your boat. Watch the video to learn even more before beginning your search.
