I reccomend the FIsh FInder. The advantage of these units is that with the graphical output, you can see the trend of the bottom (and fish or course) and by adjusting the gain you can also get a fairly good idea of bottom conditions--e.g. a sharp return indicates a hard bottom, a sharp return under a fuzzy upper layer a hard bottom under mud or grass, etc.

FWIW...
