Portable Fishfinders

Humminbird PiranhaMAX 196ci Portable Review


Humminbird is a well-known manufacturer for marine equipment and has produced a long series of fishfinders. The PiranhaMAX 196ci Portable applies professional grade Sonar technology to clearly display everything that goes on under the boat to the user. This model stands out for its precision internal GPS that makes navigation much easier. The trackplotter can be used to mark waypoints as the boat courses through the water.

Garmin Echo 150 Portable Review


The Echo 150 portable is a dual-beam, dual-frequency fishfinder from Garmin, a renowned manufacturer of fishing equipment. Being portable, the device is ideal for angling from canoes, kayaks and other small fishing vessels and for people who move a lot between boats. It not only measures water depths, but also shows the user a very good image of the structural elements like weeds and rocks lying on the bottom.

Humminbird 386ci Combo Portable Review


The Humminbird 386ci Combo Portable is a powerful internal GPS and sonar system designed for serious fishing enthusiasts. The easy-to-read color display screen measures 3.5″ diagonally and its battery holds a 7-hour charge; the unit’s impressive storage capacity accomodates up to 50 routes and 2,500 waypoints. The 386ci is waterproof, backlit and comes in a convenient soft-sided carrying case. Humminbird also offers an optional in-dash mount that keeps the unit stable and secure inside the boat.

Lowrance Mark-5X DSI Portable Review


Lowrance Mark-5X DSI Portable boasts extremely clear views of the water below you, due to the Lowrance DownScan Imaging technology included on the device. The scanning abilities are so powerful you are basically presented with crisp pictures of everything below you. This is possible because of the serious power running through the Mark-5x DSI (4,000W peak to peak and 500W RMS) for top of the line sonar scanning. Depths reached are as deep as 250 feet. There is a caveat: for the best picture clarity, boat speed should be below 10mph.
