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.

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.


    • Short hunt today because of the heat but managed 2 on a quick sundown hunt
