As portable fishfinders become more and more popular, there is a growing demand to make affordable units. One of the most affordable, yet still powerful, portable fishfinders on the market is the Humminbird 385ci portable fishfinder.
The biggest benefit of this model is that it can be quickly mounted on any kind of boat. So if you’re out fishing on a new boat today with your friend, or are on vacation and have a rental, you can easily take this fishfinder with you and use it.
It comes in a nice protective bag to keep its sensitive electronic parts safe. The transducer on this model averages 300 W of power to help you see approximately 1000 feet into the water. This will help you find lots of fish wherever you are.
Another very nice feature on this portable model is that it includes a marine battery. This is very helpful if your new boat has a poor electrical system, or you do not feel like messing with the wiring.
