  For big water?

How can a fishfinder be cheating in a paddle-craft? I don't consider it cheating even with a motor anyway.

If you're fishing on small lakes, I don't think it's worth the bother or expense. Too easy to learn the hot-spots without it, and if you are paddling, it's not like you're going to jet around the lake from spot to spot.

But for bigger water, it would push your learning-curve right up - especially in conjunction with a gps.

I agree with others though that the price is unnecessary. You can get a perfectly functional used portable fish finder and gps for under $100. Keep your I-phone in a dry box. It's too important a device to risk fiddling with it when not necessary.
