Best Marine Batteries for Electric Trolling Motors

The proliferation of marine accessories has made choosing a battery more important. It’s crucial to understand your needs and your options. Starter batteries are made to deliver a big jolt to crank motors, but take more time to recharge, while deep-cycle batteries provide lower amperage over long periods for trolling or running appliances. Neither type will last long if it’s used for the wrong purposes.

Best Underwater Cameras for Ice Fishing – Unbiased Reviews

Underwater cameras have been used in commercial fishing for decades, primarily as a means of providing visual confirmation for sonar data or environmental observations. However, these commercial units were large, heavy, expensive, and very limited in their capabilities. Since most open water, especially ocean water, is opaque due to suspended particles and living organisms

Lowrance Hook 9 Review

Rating
1/5

The Lowrance Hook 9 is an advanced fish finder intended for use by serious fishermen who want to increase the likelihood and size of a catch, as well as reduce the probability of fruitless casting or catching fish too small to be kept. It is a dedicated fishfinder that is lacking in some of the navigational aids found on other units, but because it is dedicated and focused on providing information regarding the presence of fish, it is superior to many general or mixed-purpose units.

When it comes to fish finders, you generally run across a feast or famine situation. Either the product is much cheaper than you would have expected—and its questionable quality shows why—or it is fairly expensive but generally works as advertised. There are a select few instances when fish finders actually work better than advertised, and they are usually at the highest end of the price spectrum.

The Lowrance Hook 5 Ice Machine is a sonar-based electronic fish finder with a high-resolution five-inch LCD. It has been optimized for fish detection through and under ice, although it is entirely capable of detecting fish year round. It has a built-in GPS system that contains data for over 3,000 lakes and rivers, as well as coastal contours out to 1000 feet. Additionally, the Insight Genesis software system within the device enables the operator to create their map, in the event the onboard map is out of date, not present, or the operator’s sonar determines a discrepancy in the data.

RatingNo Ratings

Gone are the days when ice fishing meant one or two people sit huddled in a small shack, staring vacantly at a hole cut into a frozen pond, simply waiting for the fish to bite. With the Garmin Striker 5 Ice Fishing Bundle, you are now able to take the offensive in a traditionally passive past time. Generally, the most difficult part of ice fishing, aside from passing the time between bites on the line, is identifying where is the best place to fish.

The differences between personal and marine electronics continue to fade as manufacturers take inspiration and technologies from the smart phones that are an increasingly significant part of our lifestyles. The electronics we want on our boats are becoming more connected to the technologies the cloud provides access to, and we see the benefits in not just increased performance and user-friendliness, but in the flood of data we have even out on the water. Nothing exemplifies this more than the Simrad GO7 XSE
