I've got a boat with a POS fish finder on it. I'd like to replace it with something that can find crappie beds with ease, maybe even find the big blues laying on bottom if it's possible. What kind of fish finder would you recommend? Maybe $500. I only fish a small private lake, if I go to a bigger lake i'll only need it catfish. I'm not real big into bass fishing unless I hook 1 lol

Thanks in advance

Look at the HB Helix series. Nothing better on the market.

Check with Russell Marine Products, he has a good selection and the guy knows his stuff well. Easy to deal with and quick turnaround. Personally, I would recommend looking at the Humminbird Helix series, as mentioned above. They are about as user friendly chart-plotter as I have ever owned.

We got a garmin 73sv during black friday for 600 everything included for installation and use (SI and DI). Works great, especially like that both SI and DI are on 1 transducer so only 1 piece to attach to the trolling motor and didn't need to add a mounting bar on the back.
