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Genesis software system within the device enables the operator to create their map, in the event the onboard map is out of date, not present, or the operator’s sonar determines a discrepancy in the data.
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.
Humminbird introduced the latest fish finding innovation just in time for the 2016/2017 ice fishing season. The compact, portable and multi-function Ice Helix 7 is the big brother to the Ice Helix 5. With GPS, flash and sonar capability, the device is sure to enable anglers to find and return to productive locations on the water with more fish in tow. With this technology at hand, anglers spend more time catching and less time finding the fish.
Up the ante of your angling experience as you watch fish and their marine surroundings come into view using Humminbird ICE 597CI HD Combo. With its 5-inch display, you can easily enjoy the full benefit of Down Imaging Sonar technology as well as Humminbird’s very own Switchfire technology. Addionally, it features a 16-channel GPS receiver as well as built-in UniMap.
It is time to pack your winter coat, because the Lowrance Elite-5 IceMachine is improving the way you fish on ice. Specially created to provide not only reliable performance and easy portability but also perfect angles for ice fishing, the Elite-5 IceMachine has a brilliant, vibrant 5 inch display with special SolarMAX 256 color, so you can view each graph, chart and number with perfect clarity no matter what the weather is like or how cold it gets (the Elite-5 IceMachine can withstand temperatures as low as negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit).
The Lowrance Elite-4 IceMachine allows you to keep track of the water beneath the ice with sharp, smooth clarity. Proving that big things come in small packages, the compact Elite-4 contains a crisp, bright LED backlight and a 300W RMS sounder able to reach the far depths, some 800 to 1000 ft deep via its 83/200 kHz dual-frequency transducer.
