has anyone fished from dock or shore with portable fish finder and if so, how does it work?

humminbird and a few others make a portable fish finder that works like others by identifying objects through sound waves. the ability to fish from shore comes from the transmitter thats casted by the fisherman and trolled over water surface and signals are sent to fisherman on shore who has a small reciever. has anyone used one of these devices???

I have a castable fish finder and notice the bass are?

Suspended between 2-4 in a pond that is 7 ft deep on average. I cannot bottom fish a texas rig if they are 2-4 ft up. I can resort to shiners but i only do that once in awhile as i like to improve on my techniques. tHis time of yr in florida they seem to have already spawned. THis time last year i was able to land alot of fish and a 6 lb avaerage is the norm i actually caught a 12pounder in the weed around the edge with a frog. The attack was ferocious and fun but there is no longer any weeds as they have added carp to keep down on the weeds. Any suggestions??

If I buy a new fish finder, can I still use my old transducer?

I have an old (late 80s-early 90s) Humminbird finder and was looking to upgrade. If I get a new Humminbird (looking at a 525 or Piranha), can I continue to use the same transducer, or do I need to us the one that comes with the new finder? Will I be able to use the same mount/bracket that’s already on my boat (at the bottom of the transom)? Also, if I decide to go with a brand besides Humminbird, will I need to remount another new bracket, or are all the brackets pretty much alike? I’m trying to save time, money, and holes in my boat. Thanks everybody!
