I recently bought a used pontoon boat and I am wanting to start learning where to fish on Lake Houston but the fish finder on the boat does not work. Can anyone suggest a good fish finder for a pontoon boat? I would like to fish for crappie, white bass, and catfish. I am willing to pay for a good one since I will be using it all the time but I don't want to spend money on the most expensive one if it is not the best one, if you know what I mean. I am new to Lake Houston and to owning a boat and need some advice.

Thanks for the help. I am looking forward to getting to know the lake and meeting some of the people on here. My boat is a white pontoon with a double red bimini top so say hi if you see me out there. Maybe once I get some practice I can come add some money to the pot for the winners of the crappie tournaments.

Welcome to the forum and Lake Houston.
Some guys will chime in about the depth finders.
I have a pontoon but only have a very cheap depth finder on it and have never used it.
I use hummingbirds on my crappie boat though.
Good luck.
