Fishfinder: a device made by Fortuna, Garmin, and Magellen, sold at Bass ProShop that indicates depth of water below the vessel's hull, and possible schools of fish, to the operator.

"I have him on the fishfinder,": l have heard your traffic advisory, but am too lazy to look out the window.

It is also SOP to NOT acknowledge visual traffic for many (Major) airlines because once the traffic is "In sight" it puts responsibility for separation on the flight crew who may or may not be looking at the correct plane, etc. It is a bad idea for a systems intensive airliner crew busy with a descent/ prepare to land checklist started to stop everything and play "find the Cessna". Let ATC keep the planes separated, that's their job especially when visibility is less than ideal.
The "fishfinder' Phraseology is of course wrong but acknowledging traffic via TCAS does give a crew some latitude to assist with separation if they feel OK with doing so.

Just FYI.

Wasn't there a PSA crew that collided with a Cessna because they were not looking for traffic that they were told about.
