ok guys and gals narrowed my choices to 2 models pf portable depth finders. the eagle cuda 300 with suction cup transducer ( tom i know what you are thinking it will be tied off this time if i go with this model. ) with 12 volt 8 amp battery and charger
hummingbird fishing buddy 130 portable this one has side sonar but is more expensive and looks to be a discontinued model. ( can get it out of cabelas bargain barn. ) it runs off of aa batteries . its transducer also does not attatch to the boat but sets in a tube hanging below the boat. this kinda scares me because i like to fish reelfoot lake and im thinking 1
hit on one of them there stumps would trash it.
so whats it gonna be the eagle or hummingbird, i really value you alls input so dont be shy tell me what you think. also any other options you might think of. just remember since i fish only out of rented boats it has to be easily mounted and dismounted to move from boat to boat. also price is an issue so the lesser expensive options are the best. best option is cabelas where i have a coupon and gift cards to use . so jump in and let me know thanks duckman
