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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
