    My son had one, last year, and he kept losing the signal from the bobber so he was sent another and it did the same thing.

    I was with him every time they were used and it was helpful, with depth, when it did work.

    I'm curious too, but I worry I'd lose it. My luck I'd swing for the fences and off she goes into the wild blue yonder.

    I had one and worked well. Not as good as my Garmin though. Good for lakes not sure about rivers. Maybe has a 20-35 yard range.

    If you want depth measurements from shore, carry a second rod with a slip bobber and a sinker at the end of the line. With a couple casts and adjusting the bobber stop knot, you can get a very good approximation of depth.
