Named by our reviewer Steve Walburn as the best value fish finder on the market right now, the Humminbird Helix 7 is a fine option.

What’s more, the Helix 7 is a GPS fish finder that comes loaded with base maps covering more than 10,000 US lakes and coastal waters. Another Bass Pro Shops deal, the Humminbird Helix 7 is available with a $200 (25%) discount this Black Friday.

Was £740.53/$728.38, now £541.99/$592.49 at Tradeinn.com
Simrad describes its Cruise as “intuitive” and “easy-to-use”, something that certainly can’t be said of some of its competitors with their labyrinthine operating systems. This particular model comes with everything you need for simple and straightforward GPS navigation, including a sunlight viewable display with US coastal charts, mounting bracket and a sonar transducer.

At the other end of the price spectrum, the Garmin Striker 4 is one of the most popular portable fish finders on the market. Easy to use and easy to install, this model is available in 3.5, 5 and 7 inch display sizes, and also boasts IPX7 rating for waterproofing, so there’s no need to panic if it takes a soaking. Amazon’s $28 saving outstrips all others right now, and although it’s not quite the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this product, it’s still a decent Black Friday fish finder deal.
