Aqua-Vu Showdown

5 posts in this topic

Hi folks. Does anyone out there have any experience with the new "Showdown" depth finder? Like them? Hate them? Worth switching from the unit you had? Just wondering. Thanks

Pyropal,

for the money they are a great unit. The Vertical display is very crisp, and the battery life is measured in DAYS instead of HOURS with the other units out there. Being able to zoom anywhere in the water column is nice. There have been some reports of folks having problem with noise, and the like. But that is generally just a matter of knowing what you are doing and adjusting accordingly.

i purchased one in December i really like it used it in 11 feet of water on a small private lake worked great then also on low in 32 feet of water and also millacs in 27 feet of water. also had the camera down up at millacs so i played around with it there were perch 1 foot of the bottom and then i could zoom in on them with the showdown and see them , i learned alot working the camera and then watching the showdown screen. and yes the the battery does last a long time. Enjoy

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
