Remember going fishing as a kid? For me, it was a lot of sitting and waiting, hoping to see the little bobber dip under the water for a split second to indicate there was a fish on the line. And that can get tiresome. Of course, when you’re fishing with a friend or family member, actually catching something isn’t as important as just enjoying the company. But sometimes you just want to be able to find some fish without sitting around for four hours and tossing your line out with no real idea where those fish might be. Well, now you can take the guesswork out of fishing with the Portable Fish Finder from Harbor Freight Tools!
For $44.99 and with 4 AA batteries, you can save yourself hours of time by simply placing the transducer into the water and using it from the boat, dock, or practically anywhere you’d be fishing from. The fish finder detects fish within a 90 foot range to help you know where to cast your line, lets you know how deep the fish is and also indicates the size of the fish. This makes fishing so easy, it’s practically cheating! Of course, using this fish finder in a professional competition probably wouldn’t be allowed, but for the purposes of fishing for fun, this tool is a huge help.
Plus, there are all kinds of bells and whistles on the fish finder aside from the basics. Fishing in the dark is no problem with the included backlight function for the LED display. And the screen can be adjusted for the most comfortable viewing angle, allowing you to keep your hands free so you’re ready to reel in your catch. If you’re on a moving boat, the Landscape Detector will update automatically to let you know if the lake bottom is rough, normal, or smooth.
You might be wondering what other conditions the fish finder works in. Well, according to one reviewer, this tool is highly versatile! “I was not sure how this fish finder would work for ice fishing. I went out today and the depth function works great. I marked a large fish on the bottom and caught a nice Walleye. It worked really great for the price and it is small and compact.”
Another customer had this to say: “We tossed the transducer over the side of the boat while docked. When the screen showed fish, we dropped our lines and pulled them in. Our record for this season is 22 fish in 1 1/2 hours. Our dock area is usually 9 to 12 feet deep. The position of the fish shows how far down to drop the line. Great little fishing helper.”
This is a great tool for the average fisherman or for anyone who wants to save time while out on the lake. It pretty much does everything except catch the fish for you! And with a compact size, it fits right in your tacklebox with the rest of your fishing gear. Just be sure to keep it in a dry area when not in use. If taken care of properly, this handy tool will last you for quite a while.
