Depth Sounder or Fish Finder?
Hi all. Would appreciate some advice on what would be most suitable to fit to my Avon 340.
Am not overly bothered about locating fish, but do want to be able to gauge depth, particularly in shallow waters, reasonably reliably. For simplicity of installation, I want to use a transom mounted transducer, but am uncertain whether I should go for a dedicated depth sounder (Nasa Target 2 or similar), or a Fish Finder (such as the Garmin 90 or 140).
Obviously the Fish Finder will give a broader picture of the bottom terrain, but am concerned as to whether it will be reliably accurate in shallow waters (under 1.5m), even at low speeds.
Which would you fit?
