    I'm needing to replace my Humminbird depth finder.
    It probably died of old age.lol Its a TCR101.
    I don't need anything expensive. Ain't trying to impress anyone.
    Just something I can use on the local rivers which includes the Mississippi. Depth up to 60 feet or so.
    Water temp was nice on the old one. I didn't often use the fish finder but probably ought to get it with one anyway.
    I don't want to spend a lot of money on it. The old one just died from lack of use.
    So what and where do you guys recommend?
    have a good one

    These people always have one of the best deals. And there a sponsor of the board also.

    I too have been looking for a depth finder and hummingbird makes one for about a hundred bucks that you can get at walmart. They make another one around 150 i dont know the model number but the 150$ one people tell me that you can see your bait on it if you drop it below the boat. I dont know if its true but they arent getting paid to say it so it might be

    Thanks for the input guys
    I'm leaning toward the Humminbird Piranha max 220. It has dual beam ( larger footprint) and twice as much rms power and only $10. more money that the 210.
    May have to special order it though.
    Of course I first gotta come up with some spare cash.
    have a good one
