Hi ya’ll, I got myself a humminbird helix 5 Di GPS fishfinder and am going to use it on simcoe from my kayak. I am wondering if anybody has one and know of a great setup for it for deep water. Ie lakers and whitefish.

Thanks a lot

I do kayak fishing, and yes I have my fishfinder on kayak.

By fishfinder setup, do you mean how to install/rig the fishfinder on the yak (which I may help or at least show you how I do it), or you mean how to go through the fishfinder's menu to configure all the settings for deep water fishing for lakers/whitefish on Simcoe (which I can't help since each brand fishfinder has its own specific menu/setting. I have never used any Humminbird fishfinder. I have only used Lowrance fishfinder)
