i have used a Raymarine E120 with 3kw tranducer, however the Furuno units are also very good.
a lot depends on your budget
hope this helps, you could write a book on the subject

savut,
i am not a commercial squid fisherman
i have skippered gamefishing boats fishing for blue marlin on the gold coast, australia
one of the foods for these marlin are squid
i have been able to detect and track schools of squid in 200fathoms moving up towards the surface and the marlin feeding on these squid at 50fathoms
you will need to talk to the sales people to find out what model you need to suit where you are
sorry i can't be more help

I own a Raymarine HD Fish Finder great unit except when it comes to repairs, Garmin and Raymarine charge a flat fee of $450.00, local techies can't even open them up, unit must be shipped back to factory.

I use a triple hook threaded onto a 6/0 (unweighted or minimal weight)
Tie a small piece of kahawai onto the 6/0 hook (just flesh)
Cast out as far as you can. As soon as it hits the water flick the leaver and let it slowly drift back under the yak
I use the triple and 6/0 as i have found I get a better hook up rate than with the bought lures

Sometimes I add a flashing light as below - slide a triple on and add a little weight

Make sure you are fully clothed as they can remove your skin fairly quick
A quick stab between the eyes kills them quick.
