The low lakes I fish are generally pretty shallow, maybe 35', but most are under 20' deep. In my Water Master without a motor I am going to be moving in the stern direction. The Water Master has an 18" front to back wood seat platform about 10" or so above the water so I think I can install a surface mount for a removable transducer at the rear of my seat that I can secure in an up position near shore and also minimize interference from my legs.
DI or SI? Should I care?
DI sonar devices have a fairly narrow cone at the depths I fish.
Am I going to be scaring fish off as I approach above them so DI generally won't spot fish?
Does SI work effectively with your legs in the water?
GPS-Mapping, should I care?
Do most GPS-equipped users take the time to map an area and return to likely spots?
Horizontal or narrower vertical screen orientation for a PWC?
What else should I know?
Thanks in advance for the help

When another man is caught up in a branch he disengages his fly; I jerk at it till something breaks...
Perhaps no other man's average of lost flies in proportion to taken trout was ever so great as mine.
