How to chose a fish finder?

24 May 2017 - 09:40 PM

Hi everyone


New here and new to having my own gear for fishing. I've been researching fish finders and I'm getting pretty close to making a decision. Before I pull the trigger though I wanted to know if anyone had any advice on what to look for or what to avoid?


I found this infographic that was helpful for a newb like myself (parents owned the gear I've fished with for most of my life) but do you have any tips? I think I'm interested in the garmin striker 4 since it's a chirp and has gps at my price point (less then $200). Is there anything that I'm missing? I do mostly small lakes and river fishing all fresh water. Does anyone have this model? Do you have another preferred rig in this price range that I'm missing?


Appreciate the advice! Can't wait to get going for the season!
