Fishing might not be America's most favored pastime, but there is something about reeling in a big, fighting fish that touches a primal nerve, leading you right to the lake. If you love the sport, but lack the luck, then consider using a fish finder to give you a little bit of an edge over the competition, and this list will help you select the best option to out-fish even the professionals.

Editor's Notes

March 12, 2020:

Fish locators do more than just alert you to the presence of a fish; they have various features, including mapping the contours of the bottom of the water, detecting the water temperature and depth, and sounding alarms when fish are within a certain range. While fixed locators might be the better choice if you take a boat out for your fishing trips, other types of finders have their own advantages. A closer look at our rankings for both fixed and castable fish finders will help you decide which type of design you need. If you need portability in your finder, then our hand locators list shows you the best ones available right now. Garmin is a big name in outdoor equipment, so our selection of Garmin finders explores the features of this brand, helping you narrow down your final selection.

In this list, we take a closer look at only castable models, which offer a broader range of coverage compared to fixed models, as well as more flexibility because they can be used from boats, banks, shores, and docks. The Deeper Pro+ Smart Sonar is a wireless model that has a casting range of more than 300 feet, as well as a rapid scanning beam for precise measurements. If you do not have a preference when it comes to wired or wireless, then the Lucky Portable Handheld might be a good option. The casting range is just over 25 feet, but what it lacks in distance, it makes up for in features, such as the color monitor that displays various details of the water and land. Now, if the latest technology is a must-have for you, then look at our list of touchscreen fish finders
