Alright so I've been saving my money and I think its time to buy a descent fish finder/depth finder. I've been reading about it and it seems that you really get what you pay for in this area, but I'm also a college student with bills to pay. Is there a difference between a chart plotter and a basic fish finder? The gps option isn't really important to me but I'm not opposed to it either. Color isn't a must either. Around 250.00 is what I have right now is the garmin 300c a good choice? Should I go with a different brand? I'll really appreciate any input on this subject. The BOC has never steered me wrong and I've learned alot from everyone.
