How To Use Your Fish Finder Like A Pro (Top Tips, Mistakes & More)

http://how%20to%20use%20your%20fish%20finder

“It’s like a 95-year-old using an iPhone to just call and text.”

Fish finders are some of the greatest, yet misunderstood tools that anglers have.

Most of us are like the 95-year-old mentioned above and are just barely scratching the surface with all that our fish finders can do.

Plus, when you consider how expensive they are, realizing you aren’t getting the full use of them is a downright tragedy!

So we brought one of the best fish finder experts in the world on to the podcast today to help us better understand them.

Neal Combs is the expert who trains the experts at Bass Pro and West Marine.

Plus, he’s from Navico, who represents all the top brands, so he’s not biased towards one brand or another.

Hello,

I just recently purchased a Hobbie Pro 14 and looking for some good advise on which fish finder to purchase. I will use it to target to target deep saltwater fish as i troll. I have a Helix 5 with DI and looking to upgrade to better unit. What units fishfinding units are people running on the larger kayaks. I’ve even heard that there are units that have tide chart already programed into them.
