GOOD REASONS TO USE A FISHFINDER ON YOUR KAYAK

Just about everyone who starts kayak fishing does so for the simplicity of it. However, before long you will probably start thinking about the advantages of having a fishfinder on your kayak. A fishfinder might not be for all kayaking fishos, but here are some reasons to consider using one.

A FISHFINDER HELPS YOU FIND BAITFISH

Bass and many other gamefish follow the bait. If you can follow the bait you can follow the fish. A fishfinder makes it easy to eliminate water without baitfish. If there are baitfish about in schools, you will know about with your fishfinder. You will also know the depth.

A FISHFINDER HELPS YOU FIND HABITAT

Most people think that fishfinders are all about finding fish. An experienced fisho knows that underwater structure is normally the place where you will find fish of significant size and just about all year round. From fallen trees to wrecks, fishfinders let you know what it is like under the water and find the home to some of the best gamefish out on the water. Fishfinders with GPS and mapping technology allow you to add location markers so you can return to your new secret fishing spot out on the water.

FISHFINDERS ARE INEXPENSIVE

Like most technology, prices are falling all the time. Fishfinders are very inexpensive and very easy to install. For a couple of hundred dollars, you can be catching more fish with a fishfinder on your kayak on your next fishing trip.
