Default Re: Fish finder for jon boat

I have porta bote which I use my Garmin 498C on when I hit the lakes. Its out of your price range as well. Its for my other boat but works great for my porta bote as well. I use an adjustable clamp on transducer mount from Cabelas along with a spare transducer that I had. I like the setup because its not permanant and can be used on a rental boat if I so choose. It also has a GPS so I can mark those fishey spots on the lake. You could do the same thing with any fish finder. Clamp on transom tranducer bracket, small battery and a clamp on mount for the finder and you are set.
