Planning my 14th trip to Canada for walleyes and northern this June with my 2 boys. Looks like we're going to a new body of water for the first time in 10 years. There's a lot of water up there and finding the various deeper channels and humps could take all week. Does anyone have one of those portable "fishin buddy" depth finders I could borrow? I'd need it from June 10th through June 21st? Let me know.

Thanks
Mike

I have a basic hummingbird fishfinder that you can have. Works just fine, but I upgraded and have no use for it. Pay shipping and it's yours.

Lenny, thanks for offer but it's a fly-in trip and I'm limited to 125 lbs per person for a week of fishing and that includes gear, cloths, water, food and beer. We eat lots of walleye but I cant afford to haul a heavy battery and I couldn't recharge it. What size battery do you run it on?

Ahh... Figured you could run it off the trolling motor if they offered one. I've always just run it off one of the deep cycles.

We have 16' aluminum semi-v's with 9.9 hp motors. No real way for them to get big boats or motors out to the remote area we fly into. No roads, no electricity, no phones, no internet connectivity, nothing. We cook and light the cabin on propane. Heat is a woodstove and we get in the 40's at night in late June. The fishing is always spectacular.

You guys did remind me that I have an old motorcycle 12v that I had hooked up to my kayak FF before I got a boat. I'll have to disassemble the FF from inside the kayak. That battery may work but it hasn't been charged for 4 years :o. Doubt she's anygood now. :- Stay tuned.
