StrikeMaster Polar Vision Digital Sonar

5 posts in this topic

There are probably many of you guys already using these great little hand-held sonars, but for those of you that don't have one it would be a good addition to your ice fishing arsenal.
I have had mine for a couple of years and it has been an invaluable tool for finding a particular depth of water or piece of structure in a flash.
The Polar Vision looks like and is about the size of a flashlight.
For operation all you need to do is pour a small amount of water on top of the ice, place the transducer end down on it and press the button.The depth will appear on the liquid crystal display,plus the display is lighted for use at night.
The PolarVision will get an accurate depth reading through the worst ice.It is not intended to do what your vexilar does,but it will help you find that drop-off or deep hole in a flash .

Hope we get some snow tonight!!
Good Catches This Weekend !!

I have one too. It will definitely not replace my vex, but it is great for pike fishing with tip-ups. I can carry it in my pocket and drill holes at the desired depth rather than a whole bunch of holes tryng to locate the desired depth. I always feel it's better to drill as few holes as I can in order to not spook the fish. Maybe I am wrong, but it works for me!

The hubby just got a Polar Vision for Christmas. I don't know about the older style ones, but ours also has an alarm that will beep if it detects fish and will display the depth that it detected them at for a few seconds. It's a handy little tool.

    • Kidneys and black X2,, This isn't a down south chili cook off, we need substance in our chili up here lol. 
    •   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    •   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
