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???

Are there any fishing pole guards to keep them from falling in the water?

Are there any ropes or some sort of floating device that attach to a fishing pole incase they accidently fall in the water? Im just wondering because ive seen Bill dance drop his fishing poles in the water about 100 times and now I’m kind of worried about my pole especially if I will be fishing in a Kayak.

why does my zebco 11 micro spincast reel stop the line from going out?

this is my sons reel, and it seems 2 outa 3 times it fails to cast, or when it does cast, the line goes about 20-30 feet and stops, dropping the lure well short of the desired target area. I know, I know, go get a spinner reel, and I have one, but like I said, this is for my 7 year old boy, any suggestions on why it does this? and how I can fix it?
