Now, I'm 15 so I get a lot of my tinkering tools from harbor freight because they're inexpensive and work pretty damn


find a better one.. Don't spend money on something that might not work. Get something you know will work..

Yep, and just the fact a lot of the guys on this forum can probably out curse a drill instructor, our rules here prohibit cursing as a lot of youngsters even younger than you read this forum, and we just try to keep that type of communication from the forum.
Social media doesn't seem to mind, but here it's not accepted as readily.
I'm with the buy a name brand entry level that is time tested as with the Garmin Striker, which is a pretty good unit and will get the job done.


I put a Garmin Striker 4cv on my bass raider 8 that I use to throw around in small ponds. Love that little thing. I literally have contour maps of neighborhood ponds and other ponds people don’t know about. The QuickDraw map is such an awesome feature. There are ponds I’ve been to that if you were on the bank, you’d have no idea how great the fishing is “offshore” without a graph.

For smaller entry units, Garmin IMO absolutely destroys the others. The little Lowrance and HB equivalent of the Striker don’t hold a flame to the Garmin. Best $179 I’ve ever spent

Now I’m bias to Garmin, I run all echoMaps on my big rig. But I’d be hard convinced that Lowrance or Humminbird’s small $150 units can do half the stuff that the Striker can

I hope it works like a champ for you and you catch the new record with it. I'd be laughing my arse off for months over that.

And DAMN. That was a cuss word in my house growing up! As said when it comes to electronics I’d go name brand!

Daniel,

I have an old Lowrance 5" that would be perfect for your yak. I will give it to you, you will have to source the transducer but they are available and not expensive.

PM me if you want it.

They build disposable tools. How good do you think their fish finders would be?

I'd confirm Harbor Freights return policy and make sure it can be returned. No risk if you can return it.
Also check for 20% coupons, they always have those running
