Bottom Line makes a series of portable fishfinders called Fishin' Buddy. They also make a holster attachment that works great with float tubes. If used this set up for years and it has worked great for me. I primarily use it for bass or panfish fishing and looking for structure.

Caddis makes a rod holder which I converted to hold my old depth finder from my bass boat, cabelas sells small 12volt batteries that don't weigh to much that comes with a recharger for about 25$. The transducer dangles down to the side of the pontoons and when I want to look in a specific area I point the transducer there I get some great veiws that way.

This might be easier. I thought someone made on of these as a watch you wear on your wrist with a small screen.

I use a bottom line that uses 3 c cell batteries on my u-boat. I mount it to the side with a nylon belt and hold the fish finder with cut bike inner tubes. The belt has a plastic buckle that lets me unhook it when I get in shallow water. The unit works pretty well and will look forward as well as down. Don't forget to "leash" the finder to your tube though.
