    Fish Finders

    I fish Lake Lewisville mostly for White bass/Hybrids and cats. I don't want a huge screen finder. I am trying to keep everything compact and don't want a flat screen tv on my dash. My queston is are the smaller finders any good. I am looking at the Hummingbird piranamax 170. Does anyone have any experiance with it?

    I just bought the humminbird 385ci, dual fish finder/gps. Haven't mounted it yet but I'm probably going to put it on the storage compartment lid right in front of me. The unit has a quick disconnect so when I'm playing I can just take it off and just have the mount sitting there.

    Is a picture the 835i kayak combo. The mounting worked really well.

    Power source for FF/GPS?

    Are you hooking into the ski battery for power, or putting in an aux battery for the FF/GPS?

    The 385i combo has its own battery thats chargable. I have ran it for 10+ hrs, due to accidently not turning it off and was still running when i went back out to the garage, so I would highly recommend it.

    Thanks cowthief, I could never have answered it as it's still in the box. Hopefully get to the install in the next couple weeks. Good to know.

    FYI: I commented on this thread regarding auxiliary batteries. Maybe this'll work for you guys. (End of the thread): http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=124950

    Sumo, how do you like the 400c? It's more than I want to spend but color looks interesting.

    I have only used it 4-5 times. its pretty nice so far, I mainly just use it to scan the bottom for structure or drop offs and stuff like that. I think its a little more detailed than the other fish finders that I've used.

    If the 400c is a little out of your budget you can also go with the 300c and mount the transducer on the transom.
    I installed my transducer in the hull so thats why I went with the more powerful model.
