Garmin has released the Striker Plus series of fishfinders, with improved sonar technology and a new set of features that enable anglers to catch more fish, yet just as easy to use as the original Striker series. The Striker Plus 7cv introduces built-in GPS, Quickdraw Contours mapping, and wireless connectivity
Garmin echoMAP CHIRP 53cv has an average rating of 4.4 out of 5 based on 12 user reviews. Kayak fishing is increasingly popular. You can reach deep water but without the hassles of boat costs and maintenance. You can also fish shallow waters closer to shore than you can
Garmin introduced the Striker Plus series as an upgrade to the older Striker series. It has new tech and features but is even more user-friendly to make catching fish even easier. The Striker Plus has features designed to take full advantage of the built-in GPS, including Quickdraw Contours and Wi-Fi
The Garmin echoMap CHIRP 43cv is the latest in a long line of Garmin aquatic navigational aids intended to be ideal for small and even unpowered craft. Due to its small size and 5V power intake, it can easily be installed even on small fishing boats or canoes and kayaks, although in such unpowered craft an external source of power will still be required.
The Lowrance Hook 9 is an advanced fish finder intended for use by serious fishermen who want to increase the likelihood and size of a catch, as well as reduce the probability of fruitless casting or catching fish too small to be kept. It is a dedicated fishfinder that is lacking in some of the navigational aids found on other units, but because it is dedicated and focused on providing information regarding the presence of fish, it is superior to many general or mixed-purpose units.
The extensive Garmin history has produced some very popular new products, including the Garmin STRIKER 4cv with transducer. The company followed the original STRIKER fishfinder success with a new STRIKER series that includes ClearVu technology. Even better, you can share your routes and waypoints with similar devices.

The Humminbird Helix 7 CHIRP G2 is the second generation of Humminbird Helix fishfinders/chartplotters and employs multi-frequency CHIRP technology for better target separation, deep water penetration, and decreased water column clutter. The head unit features a brilliant 7″ diagonal 16-bit grayscale color TFT display with 800H x 480V pixel resolution that provides crystal-clear viewing in harsh sunlight and works perfectly for split-screen imaging.
When it comes to fish finders, you generally run across a feast or famine situation. Either the product is much cheaper than you would have expected—and its questionable quality shows why—or it is fairly expensive but generally works as advertised. There are a select few instances when fish finders actually work better than advertised, and they are usually at the highest end of the price spectrum.
For 2017, Humminbird has once again stepped up the technology by creating the Helix 5 CHIRP G2 fish finder. Unlike the 1st Generation series, Gen 2 features the addition of CHIRP sonar, which enables anglers to scan depths using low, middle or high frequencies individually or simultaneously. The advanced sonar provides better target separation, reduced image noise and displays in higher-resolution along with the ability to reach depths of up to 1000 feet.
