I was presented with a list of gifts to choose from for completing 30 years working for my employer. There weren't a lot of things on the list that I needed, but the Humminbird Piranhamax 230 portable fish finder looked interesting. I chose it and it arrived yesterday. It seems from all of the reviews and literature to be a pretty slick gadget. I am used to finding fish the old ways.
So, tell me your experiences with these things.

Mine's not a portable. I am still rigging it on my canoe, but I'm eager to play with it.

used mine on a couple different yaks.They're very good for finding the structure fish hang around.

Thanks, guys. Learning the bottom does seem important. Our reservoirs, built over the stream that was dammed for that purpose, conceal lots of texture. Also, I think that fishing over the former creek bed might be productive as they probably have a natural pull to that habitat. I frequently cast to the rise ripples, being a fly fisherman. I might get a little more use out of my sinking line and appropriate wet flies.

i bought the pm 150, not a portable but is. i built a dashboard for my canoe and only put one bolt through with a wing nut for quick on/off and am very pleased. too bad no one knows how to read a monitor. people tell me where to find out and or give me a link which will say yes it can and thats all
Works pretty good!|
