Trying to find best fish finder for my kayak. I'm a fisher man and i like to catch fish while kayaking. But don't know where to find the right fish finder. Then i find this site http://kayakfishfinderhub.com reading their reviews i'm confused which fish finder is good "Deeper Smart Fish Finder" or " fish Hunter".

The exact same units that are good for larger boats. Don't limit yourself to a 4" screen. Get a unit that meets your needs and your budget. I fish some skinny water so I really liked the idea of side scan. I ended up with a Helix 7 with side scan. The screen is big enough the run it in a split screen mode without squinting too much. If you do pay for a side scan unit, make sure that your mounting method lets you exploit what you paid for. The transducer should be mounted below the line of the hull for best results.

There are some great prices out there right now.
