Pinpoint Depth Finder

6 posts in this topic

Anybody have any experience with these?

I am looking at buying a boat and one of these come with it.

What are some of the pros and cons?

I don't know what model it is yet.

Thank You

I think all the Pinpoint's got thrown overboard. My buddy had one. The depth finder worker fine, but the bow mount that it was supposed to control was another matter. He used the combo for a couple of years and sold it opting for a MinnKota and a Lowance.

I think the Pinpoint stuff is great - when it works.

If it breaks (as in the case of my older Pinpoint trolling motor) be ready to buy something else because repair is not economically viable.

Thanks guys....He has it just set-up as a depth-finder, so I think I should be OK

I have 2 Pinpoint depth finders on my Warrior. I have had very good luck with them.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
