Better fish detection,
Better target separation,
No noticeable difference from 60' to 150',
Functional to at least from 150' to over 200'.

For side and down vu:
Better less-than-60' imaging
No noticeable difference from 60' to 150'
Functional to 200'

Please, Semper or KMoose or other adjust my numbers if needed
Dadoe, I don't have any experience in your neck of the woods so I can't really say if your area would pose different results. If you are having any concerns of range then I would just go with the 51 and you won't be disappointed. Going with the 52 will likely leave you wondering as I have before with some purchases. Pull the trigger on the 51 and you will be good.
