Favorite Depth Finder?

My Humminbird died the last time out, so it's time to upgrade. I can't decide on which to get. I don't want to spend alot of money and want to get the most bang for my buck ($250 or less). I'm torn between Humminbird, Lowrance and Eagle. I've heard good/bad about all three. What's your experience and what's your preference? This is for freshwater, and the boat is a 17' Nitro.

Thanks

My Eagle III has done well for me. I don't know the cost because It was given to me.
My friends Hummingbird is nice as well. I don't do a whole lot of fishing. So, I may be no help to you. I haven't seen anything bad about either of the two.
Both were used on a 14' canoe with a troll motor.

A 36" IROK works pretty well for judging relative depth of a fishing hole (relative to my YJ's ability to make it across).

i think my father just got a new Garmin on his boat awhile back, and he liked it.

he was fishing at lake Irving during the tournament and he said he did good for him.

but i don't think it was under $250 though, i will have to ask him.

I ended up getting a Humminbird 141C today. Color display, temp, blah, blah, blah... We'll see how it does. I'll install it tonight and then we are headed to the lake this weekend for some relaxation. I'll be sure to report back to let ya know how well it does or doesn't perform. All I really use it for is depth and to decipher what kind of structure is under water. Other than that, it's a glorified, expensive non-interactive video game.

you can also record spots, so if you found a good spot to fish, you can record it so you can get back to the same spot the next day.

The GPS feature is nice in that kind of situation, so you can pre fish a lake before a tournament and if you find some sweet spots you can record them and when the tournament comes you can go back to the same spot and have a high chance of catching the big fish.
