I was looking to buy a Humminbird SmartCast RF15 Portable Fishfinder since I do alot of fishing from the shore. I was wondering if anyone has tried one of these or the previous model the RF10. :D

Nah. Do they work? I understand your supposed to cast them out and they give you a picture from shore. Is that correct?

Welcome to the site! I have looked at those units a few times, they look pretty cool. I think the display mounts right on your fishin pole, I wonder how well they work?

I'd be afraid to cast the damn thing off if it attaches to your line... LOL I know they have several types, I looked at them briefly...Some mount on the pole, others you wear on your wrist like a watch. Either way, its wireless and I wouldn't buy one until I could try one out that some one else spent thier money on LOL

I was just going to ask about these too, but I found this string. Seems like a great idea for us shorebound guys if they work. I was looking at them online last week. Not that I consider a skunk trip to be a waste of time, I'm out fishing after all, but sometimes it would be nice to be able to cast an eyeball out and see what's down there, especially if you're unfamiliar with the bottom structure. Most of the time I just feel like I'm casting blind, ya know? If anyone happens to try one out, please post your results!!

Skunked 7 times in a row now, the wife is just laughing at me. :?
