 I to have been around all that tech since the 70s ,went from flasher to paper to the more modern of today 
 They all give the same info just present in a different format is all
 There are differences between the two

I have an FL-18 that was given to me by a friend. Most days on the ice I find it a distraction. I have a simple hummingbird in the boat. Mostly all I need to know is where the bottom is.

The boat is going down the road in the spring. No need for depth finders on the stream.....unless you're nymphing.

  I use to own a fl18 vex flasher , dependable and indestructible
 At least while trolling or ice fishing you know if your fishing dead water ,
 Far as on the stream we are our own fish finders , (reading water) just like electronics some are better than others 😉🎣
  If we lump all fish finders in a group they are all sonars

It's a definite plus most days on the ice. Only trolling I've done in the past 10 years iis on the canal for eyes.

After the boat is gone I might set up a kayak and explore the small waters around here.

That's a serious consideration Fred. I'm thinking I'm going to look at a raised seat design. But, I'm still in the beginning stages of looking. There's a good shop on Irondequoit bay that I'm going to visit. So many options out there today.

Look for a sit on top fishing kayak with a seat that has a back support. Put in some padding on seat and lumbar support pillow. You can move your legs around so you don't cramp up. I have a spinal fusion from a tree stand fall and it works for me. Walmart has good selection and cheapest price.

That went several years ago. Great for rivers and streams, terrible for any kind of open water. Didn't track at all. Got back all my $$

Thanks for the advice Catfisher. So far the best yak I've looked at is the Bonafide SS127. Long time till I pull the trigger. But it's the best thought out craft I've seen yet.

Ough. Rg

That ss127 elevated seat looks like the way to go. Way better than what I have. I should have done more research. Now you're going to make me buy another one. THANKS.

If it makes you feel better Fred, Im 36 and my back wouldn't take it either.

Also this thread made me laugh...is this what happens here off season?
