Fishing draws in all kinds of people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Some people love to fish alone and use it as an excuse to get away and think, others might enjoy bringing their friends or their family along to have fun and drink, and then some people are genuinely really serious about catching fish and put in a lot of energy and resources into researching and using baits and techniques that will allow them to get a good catch every single time. If you happen to fall into the category of the latter or if you are looking to become one of those people, then you should look into tools and resources that will make finding fish easier for you.
A great example of this is using a fish finder, which, like the name suggests, is a device that allows you to get a feel of what is around you so that you can gauge which way you need to steer your boat to get to where the fish are or where there is more fish activity in general. These fish finders come in a lot of different varieties and their price varies depending on how deep and spread out the reach of the finder is, and how clearly it can show you what it is detecting within that range. You do not have to invest in the most expensive and invasive fish finder immediately, especially if you do not fish that regularly to begin with because that is just money going down the drain. You can start with the simpler types of fish finders, and if you like how they work and if you do notice an improvement in your catch rate/type, then you can slowly expand to bigger and more expensive fish finders.
