Thanks for the reply. I was thinking the same thing. Using it for the "once in a great while" shore or river fishing excursion.
Ive had a few times where ive caught fish right next to break walls, but didn't dare get my boat close enough to see what the bottom contour was.
Also thought it would be a nice reserch tool prefishing for a tournament.
THAT IS A GREAT IDEA PLACING THE TRANSDUCER OFF THE PLANER BOARD. THE RANGE IS 100' DISTANCE
PLUS THE 90 DEG TRANSDUCER SWEEP MAKES THIS A TOOL TO HAVE IN THE BOAT. MY OVERALL RATING ON THIS PRODUCT WENT FROM 7 TO 10. TOO BAD THERE ISN'T A SPLIT SCREEN DUAL/TRANSDUCER FINDER FOR PORT AND STARBOARD PLANER BOARDS. BUT YOU COULD BUY TWO FINDERS WITH TWO TRANSDUCERS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE TWO DIFFERENT FREQUENCY TRANSDUCERS, THIS COULD HAPPEN.
