Polar Vision Problems

Question

iffwalleyes

I have one of those polar visions that there is another thread were people are posting. I didn't want to put this with those because I believe they are a good unit. But the problem that I have with mine is that is is very slow to pick up the depth reading. Sometimes it won't read through the ice even when using water. Also have tried to just put new batteries in that doesn't do it either. I will drill a hole to check it like that and still when the water is moving up and down after drilling or there is too much ice it won't read. Has anyone else had these sort of problems. I know strikemater is the manufacture of them I was just wondering if anyone knows what kind of warrenty they have since mine is about 4 years old it has never really work properly? I have just been using the vex lately and I think that that works better. Thanks for the help.

I have one that's on it's third year and works great.

I have some buddies that bought them and they have never worked right.

All I can say is that yours is most likely out-of-warranty and you'll have to ask Strikemaster if they'll work with you. They are really tops in Customer Service.

All units with transducers should get careful handling. If they get smashed or bumped too much they'll act up and need replacment. THe same goes for your Vex or Marcum Ducers--I cover mine with a Crown Royal bag in transit!

Actually, believe it or not Marcum makes the unit.

Call Strikemaster and they will take care of you no matter how old it is.

Great unit, my works great! Sounds like your transducer is bad.

We have the Polar Vision and it works good for the moment. But, we were told whatever you do, DO NOT drop it or bang it up because they just cannot take it. If you happen to do that then from what I understand it could be junk. You need to protect it just like a little baby. Good luck.

      Made a few modifications to my pontoon.   I thought it would interesting to summer ice fish in the same spots I catch all of my winter walleyes.   Don

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.
