Re: Using a Fish Finder in a Canoe

This is what you want.

I have one but it's an older, black and white display. Quickly clamps on and off your canoe. Transducer is at the end of the long rod. Nothing to attach to the bottom of the boat. Runs off 8 AA batteries. You will get days and days off of one set. A bit awkward to pack but not super heavy. Love mine.

Re: Using a Fish Finder in a Canoe

I think this is the one I'm currently using.:

Suction cup mount for the transponder, and ya you should pull it up before grinding it on the bottom, but it just gets pushed around if you forget. 

That one has a rechargeable battery but the previous one used 8 AA's and would last me a season on a set of batteries. 

They are most useful for showing the depth and letting you troll underwater contour lines.

I bought this exact model from crappy tire this summer to use in my 12ft setup.  Great little fish finder!

Re: Using a Fish Finder in a Canoe

I reccomend the garmin striker 4. They make a portable kit that comes with everything you need to use it on your canoe and for ice fishing. I use one and it works great.
