Fish finder as you will have so much more information on what is under you, is it getting deeper, is it rocky etc!
You can also see the fish which my kids love!

Ollyit,

I've been through the same thought process myself and eventually bought a fish finder last week at the SBS. For me the decision was easy.

Depth finder - shows depth
Fish finder - shows depth, shows fish, gives me speed and water temperature

As I plan to do some fishing from my RIB, the fish finder won.
I bought a Raymarine DS400

Olly, buy a Navman fishfinder with the speed transducer like I have. Should be able to get a good deal on an older model, mabe 110 or so. I'll have a look when I get home tonight.

Navman Fishfinder 4150 with T/M Transducer inc Speed & Temp
126.00
But worth the extra money for the speed sensor I think

I use a lowrance M52S/GPS fish finder and gps plotter...

ItS a pretty compact unit and seems to work really well....

I think I paid about 160.00

Not only will it do everything you need you also have a GPS system as well....

fOR THE EXTRA 50.00 ITS WELL WORTH IT.
