Still like my old fashioned fish finder.

I found it funny this was right above my post, considering I'm giving away 10 rods, in part because I made a 16 rod holder for the garage and even with these rods going away I still have more than will fit in the holder.

Bluetooth fish finders.

I have kicked around the idea of getting one. How has it been knowing that your phone has to be available to use. Any issues?...dropped phones, dead battery on phone, etc? I have kept with the Vex due to these potential issues.

Fish, u can always bring a battery bank.. I mostly use my tablet which has 4500 mah battery so no issue. The deepers last around 5 hours and fishhunter around 8. The ibobber last a very long time but I hate the wide angle

What? You been talking to my wife? She thinks I am, but I'm saving for a rainy day. Cuz then you need different gear. Right?

Have you ever used any of them ice fishing?
 Reply by: Basschaser      Posted: 12/6/2017 6:52:46 AM     Points: 1444    
So the weakness is none have IR option.
But the strong side is this
Deeper pro+ has the ability to make lake bottom maps via internal GPS no boat need... Super cool
Fishhunter 3d has the ability to create a 3d picture
All except ibobber have flasher mode
All are castable
The weight is in ounces not pounds
And all are cordless

These are not toys, they actually do work.

How is the response time in the Flasher mode? The display looks like it has nice resolution and shows a lot of detail.
 Reply by: Basschaser      Posted: 12/6/2017 7:36:42 AM     Points: 1444    
Response is excellent but somewhat slower on the Bluetooth models.
If u asked me I'd say skip Bluetooth and go with wifi only.

Now back to hoarding...

Does this qualify me as one? 3 flashers, 3 sets of hammer drill/driver set.

I was fishing next to a gentleman at Williams Fork using the iBobber he marked them as well as I did on my Lowarnce Hook4x.

Sure Ibobber marks fish but there are times when I'd like a flasher wheel and ibobber doesn't have one. Also cone angle is very wide 90 degrees.. So just guesstimating at 60' your coverage is 120 feet wide. It's great for shallow water but for deep water&long trips its one of the fishhunters 9 hour battery or short trips deeper pro or pro + 4 hour battery but selectable beam and internal GPS

So which do you like better on the ice?
