Now I am confused BIG TIME. Lots of questions????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????
Ghost with lowrance equipment, Ultrex with Hummingbird and Garman trolling with garmin equipment?
My buddy is looking at a Garmin 93 something, with down imaging and with livescope and wants the Ultrex trolling motor, What is the advantages versus disadvantages. What does he need to make it all work as it should. I am not electronics savey at all and the first to admit it and neither is he really.
We bass fish and he is more of a bank beater and I am more structure fisherman.
If you want to just put up on the bow a new trolling motor and 1 electronics on a budget of 5 to 6 grand or less what would you do. I plan on buying the one for the console, upgrade at least one better, with side imaging, what ever route he goes up front.
I am just trying to help him out with what works best together.
Long and Confused

Call David at Shut up and Fish, he lives and breathes this every day. He not only installs it, he fishes with it and has fished with and experienced it all, as in all brands. You will get a lot of opinions on here, mine is stay the hell away from Lowrance, they are cheap and break down soon after warranty is up. Call David Goodson he’s the guru. Another unbiased opinion would be from Slade Daughtery, he uses and trains a lot of folks on electronics. When someone drowns and the fire dept can’t find them, they call Slade he is the best with electronics in know how to use in this area!

I can’t wait to get down there with my Livescope! And pull 28 five and six pounders out of Karl’s corner again.
