Looking to get ahead of the game when you’re fishing? Then why not try a Humminbird Fishfinder to help you catch the big ones!
My Dad is a keen fisherman and he swears by his fishfinder as he says it saves him time and makes finding those slippery fish so much easier! He mainly fishes in lakes but when the mood takes him he has a trip to the coast for a spot of shallow water fishing. These fishfinders can also be used for deep sea fishing, but he doesn’t venture that far.

If you want to get the most out of your fishfinder consider getting one that is fully portable. You can take them on any boat, or use them on a dock, this is my Dad’s favorite type.
Below are two of the many models of Humminbird fishfinders available. The first is the one my Dad owns which is fully portable and the second has color display and GPS.

Choosing a Fishfinder
I guess the first thing to take into consideration when choosing a fish finder is price. In general the higher the price the better the quality of the equipment, so think carefully about what you need and expect from a fish finder to make sure you get the best value for money.
Consider the following:
- Where will you be fishing, on a lake or at sea?
- What depth capability do you need?
- Will you need single, dual or specialized beam?
- Does your fishfinder need to be portable?
- Which display size would be best?
- Do you prefer color or grayscale display?
There is a great range of Humminbird fish finders to choose from, you’re sure to find one to suit your needs.
