Wrist mounted sonar

Recommended Posts

Guest

Has anyone seen the Humminbird wrist sonar?
It looks like a wrist watch with a depth finder face? It uses your line to check the bottom of the lake etc.
Has anyone had any expierence with one of these? Do they actually work? Or is it another gadget.

Yes, I have seen the SmartCast wireless wrist model. They do not use your line to check depth. They use a small transducer/transmitter that attaches to your line and then sends back a signal to the unit on your wrist.
I have not used one nor have I seen it in action, but it might work well for ice fishing due to its' portability.

A buddy of mine had one of these when we went fishing last year. It will only give you depth; it won't mark fish, etc.

It is useful in that it can cover a lot of area...casting it from a boat. Easy to find humps, drop-offs, etc.

It would probably be most comparable to using the small hand-held 'flashlight' type depth finders on the ice.

I have one. Works great for streams and smaller lakes/ponds. The instructions do say they are NOT meant for ice fishing and won't hold up in cold weather.

They do mark fish like a fish finder/graph but not like a Vexilar.

    • Fork Horn.  Welcome to the forum and thanks for the ice report.   eyeguy 54 title fix. 😊
    • Medicine has some ice in the north shallows, but is mostly open. Rice is 3/4 froze over. Should be making ice tonight with cold temps and calm.
    • LOL,  Don't p i s s Carol off! 
    • I have the Helix 7 Ice and there is no way you could pry that from my hands for a noisy spinning round dial thing. ( I was going to type flasher but I know what types of snarky GIF's would have been posted in reply to that. 
    • I’m glad Lavine is gone! With him on the team, wolves would’ve been in last place last year. He is NOT a winner! Chicago sucked last year! They suck this year! And they’re going to suck next year! I think Jimmy Butler would have stayed if we would have shipped off Wiggins. If anything, this trade should help reduce minutes for KAT and Gibson in a positive way.
    • Well, I’m only about 5 minutes into the next show, and I already know the older Judith will be more annoying than Carl was. Yep, show is back in the pits!
    • I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd!  Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn!  Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!!  hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! 😂  Go Wolves!!
    • My son was able to gain access by connecting it to his desktop. It required 12v power to drive it. Thanks.
    • UFFDA dats close!!!!!!!!!! we are close to the spring lake store iffin you go that way much!!!!!!
    • Not much to complain about so far, must be why its so quiet in here. From the games I am seeing we don't even look all that great yet but are finding ways to win and Dubs/parise/granlund have been amazing. Will need some depth to kick in to be any kind of real contender, and of course we need to find a way to actually score goals if we make the playoffs, it seems that is always the issue.
