Default What Fishfinder is the Best up to 150m/450ft?

Can we see some screenshots of the various fishfinders in this depth range?

Thank you

The transducer is more important than the fishfinder, the most important feature of the fishfinder is support for Airmar 1kW CHIRP transducers. For detecting fish in the water column B175H-W is the best transducer, for bottom fishing at 150m I would use a B175M. I would combine these transducers with a Simrad NSS Evo3.

For this NSS12 Evo3 screen shot a SonarHub is used as sonar module, but connecting the B175H-W transducer directly to NSS Evo3 would have given identical results. The conditions were quite choppy with very short wave lengths when I took this screen shot. The waves produced "oscillations" at the fish arcs.

I have used the B175M on our local waters and the result was very poor, we sent it back to the supplier.

NSS Evo3 with B175M in saltwater, should be sufficient for 450

I'm actually looking for screenshots of fish at 100-150m around reef / wrecks etc.

For bottom tracking I would go B175L

If looking for structure at 100-150m, B175H is the way to go.
