Has anyone used one of these, it says it shoots out sideways and fish finder.

I have used one; it worked great in side find mode. My wife and I were paddling up a long skinny arm of a lake - there were little coves off to the side. While we were drifting by a cove, I scanned the area with the finder in "side find" mode - the FB2 can rotate in it's holder/bracket and as it turns, it alarms and flashes an icon with an indication in feet for the distance to the fish. It does not tell you how deep they are, it tells you how far away the fish is from your boat or canoe. But, I cast out in the direction to the aprox. distance it was indicating, let my lure sink and as I reeled in, I caught few fish by doing that! We were fishing for pike, I don't khow how it would do for smaller fish like specs or walleye, but it worked well with pike.
