Hand Held Depth Finders


SubZero14

Question

Has anyone ever used a hand held depth finder like the Strike Master Polar Vision? Do they work well and can they shoot through ice and snow when it gets 2 feet or thicker. Looking at buying one but would like to know if they work better that a Vexlar before I spend the 100 bucks.

If you have a VEX you are set, they can give you a depth reading and even show you if there are any fish down there.

I have been using the little Sitex hand held for years and like it, just smaller and easier to carry around. I know the spots I want to fish and use it to check depth and find the "edge" so I only have to drill a limited number of holes.

The best way to use the hand held or big Vex is to clear away the snow and dump some water from your minnow bucket, you will get your best reading if you have a perfect flat and wet surface to shoot through. Just putting the unit on the ice will show you the depth with little error.

My brother has one and we use it all the time. We just carry a small water bottle with us, as you need to put a little water on the ice to make good contact and get a good reading. Rough ice and air bubble in the ice will also affect it sometimes.

The MarCum LX-i handheld is a very good unit. All you have to do is kick the snow off the ice and it will shoot through the ice(any thickness) without putting water on it. With 2500 watts of power there is no need to put water on the ice.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
