New to me Pontoon
I would like some help with getting education from you experts.

I am an avid ice fisherman and dabble in shore fishing and fly fishing when not out on the ski boat. I picked up a "new to me" 24 foot pontoon. It has an older outboard 120 V4 Johnson motor and an older hummingbird fishing buddy fish finder.

So here is the question:

1- What kicker would you suggest?
2- What trolling motor?
3- What fish finder?

I would really like some help as I know these are some of the most important pieces as I build from the ground up so to say.

I do not have a budget in mind but know I am 4k - 6k or so to get the boat in the shape I would like.

Thanks for the help.

Looks like it is in good shape. Isn't a kicker and trolling motor the same thing? As far as fish finders go it just depends on how much you want to pay and how fancy you want to get. I went with a Humminbird with side imaging, which are on the expensive end, but I purchased mine used off of eBay so it was more reasonable.

A lot of people call their Electric trolling motors, just trolling motors, so I assume that is what he is talking about.

I figured that was likely the case, but wanted him to confirm what he meant.
