No More Fish Tales With A GPS Fish Finder On Board

By: Phoenix Delray

Whether fishing in a small lake or in the depths of the ocean, you may want to look into purchasing a tool that is used by fisherman all over the world. The GPS Fish Finder will be sure to make your next fishing trip a huge success. Though they can be a little costly, you may determine that the amount of man hours that you spend seeking out that great catch has been greatly lessened.

There is something to be said for an instrument that can detect an entire realm of underwater creatures. You will find that there is a wide array of fish finders to choose from. You will find everything from very basic units for the weekend fisherman, to very involved full color display units that are more geared toward the professional fisherman.

There are several components that lend themselves to the make up of a GPS fish finder. The mounting bracket, display screen and transducer create your modern day fish finder, but how does it know how to find the fish? Well, you see, the transducer emits a beam of light (similar to that of a flashlight). As the beam moves further and further away from the transducer it gets wider and wider.

When it hits a target (a fish) the beam is reflected back to the transducer. Once that happens, the transducer then sends a signal to the GPS fish finders display, which computes the signals, distance, and shape. The distance and shape is then represented on the screen by a graphic display of either a Fish Symbol or an arch depending upon the brand and the model.

For most fish lovers, LCD finders meet and/or exceed their needs. CRT fish finders are great, but they are dependant on the use of an extreme amount of power. This can be a problem for small to medium sized boats that produce little to no electricity. The price of these fish finders really makes them more of a luxury than a necessity. LCD finders will aide in locating fish just as easily as the CRT option, minus the exorbitant cost.

Purchasing a GPS fish finder will surely prove to be an excellent investment when you catch your first swordfish, but be sure to do your research, as you would with any major purchase. You would not want to find yourself up the creek without a paddle...or a fish finder for that matter.
