Anyone ever heard of a way to hook up a bigger screen to your display on your fish finder? Just curious. Maybe an old computer monitor would work.

Been there, done that, have the T-shirt, hat, and skivies.

This is a 12V 9" flat panel TV connected to a Humminbird 1198c SI Combo:

Could always buy the smaller screen with Bluetooth and Bluetooth to a tablet. No wires needed

The XX8 models use a VC-1 cable for composite video-out.

The ONIX models use a HDMI cable for video-out.

Your issue will be finding an affordable D/C powered, sunlight viewable, weather proof display.

Do a web search for weather proof Hi-bright monitor.

I'm not a fan of Google Glass for privacy reasons, but being able to send the graph display to that might be neat.

The external screen will only mirror the fishfinders screen correct?

With the Video-out connection, yes.
