""Wanted used Fish Finder""
« on: March 22, 2014, 01:36:52 AM »
Just learned that my Lowrance HDS 5m is just strictly a plotter/GPS.

I'm looking for something used for strictly downrigging in Lake Ontario.

Looking for a fish finder with a large colour display. Something that can pick up cannon balls.

Looking for a fish finder with large colour display and not too old.
Open to any suggestions as I haven't fished for a few years.

Thanks

I would keep that GPS and use it in parallel to a fish finder unit. You will be happy with having two full screens to view both, instead of split screening a 5" unit.
Fishing, the best addiction out there ...

You read my mind as it is nice to have a screen for both purposes. All I need to do is find a fish finder that has a larger screen than the 5 inch one.

If you end up wanting to sell the hds5m that you have let me know, I have the 5x which is fishfinder only and wouldn't mind having the gps,

Do a search on kijiji. Couple places offering new 1159 ci di for 1200 on there. It's a discontinued model but they were  going for 2200 last year.

Or check out Angling Outfitters if you live in the SW. Jos sells used, refurbished and new units, plus 15 minutes with him on setting and use is worth a year on the boat.
