From the manufacturer
FISH VIEW is our custom view where we receive the RAW sonar data and reconfigure it on the app in a simplified and easy to read manner. Specifically, we remove the surface reverb and produce a more simplified bottom so that you get a nice clean water column. Whenever the sonar detects a disturbance in the water column, a fish icon appears on the screen. These icons identify the location of the disturbance in relation to your location. This makes it easy for you to identify where the fish are under your FishHunter PRO sonar. In addition, you can have your phone make a sonar 'ping' whenever fish are found beneath your FishHunter PRO so you don’t have to look at your phone.
RAW VIEW produces actual results from the powerful Tri- Frequency Transducer in real time. In this mode, you become an instant expert, interpreting the different coloured lines at the bottom of the screen to see depth and structure while watching for disturbances in the water column to locate fish. This powerful hands on view gives you everything you need to rapidly identify and catch more fish. The darker the color on the screen the more dense the material the sonar is seeing, with red being the most dense possible. The lighter colors indicate softer materials like wood and weeds with blue being considered the water body itself. Fish are identified as 'arches' of color in the water column or near the bottom depending on their location.
Ice Fishing Flasher
Unlike traditional flashers, FishHunter PRO floats on the surface of the water in the ice hole, withstanding weather conditions as cold as -22ºF (-30ºC). The Ice Fishing Flasher View uses 2 powerful ultra high frequencies 475 kHz and 675 kHz to enable you to see your jig in real time. Both the SPLIT Screen (Flasher / RAW Data) and FULL Screen (RAW DATA only) view allow you to see the bottom, the bottom depth and the temperature conveniently on your smartphone or tablet.
FishHunter PRO provides you with record breaking fast and precise sonar information. You will now have the power to reach and analyze the bottom structure, and find fish up to a depth of 150 feet faster then before. The sonar floats on the surface of the water and can be cast and trolled behind your boat or placed in your ice hole so it is easy to take with you for all fishing trips.

First off, I have always been a shore based fishing enthusiast, far from a pro or legitimate seasoned angler, but someone who gets out as often as they can on my local waters. I have put in my time pounding the shores of my local lakes and ponds, along with miles of sand on my local beaches. I have learned to find fish well in these local waters but would love to take advantage of the promises a castable sonar unit would bring when exploring new waters. I have also recently purchased a Fish Cat 4 Float Tube, and decided a castable sonar unit would be far easier and lighter than the traditional sonar units.
I settled on this particular model based on spending countless hours reading through online reviews and watching numerous youtube vids of the various iPhone sonar units available. One reason was I wanted a WiFi connection instead of Blue Tooth for the promised range and reliability. Of the competitors, The Deeper Pro was a 1 to 3 month expected delivery with no reviews and the SonarPhone did not have an app interface that appealed to me. I chose the FishHunter Pro based on it's specs to cost ratio along with attractive app interface.
Please note, I intend to revisit this review and update my rating as I put more experience into the unit.
The unit came packaged beautifully and contains everything you need. I will not get into the contents since that is readily available. My initial test was at a local city park I fish frequently. I will jump right into initial pros and cons.
- Contains everything you need to get started.
- Great app interface with tons of user community bells and whistles. Almost like a Facebook of FishHunter users. Probably won't use this feature all to much.
- Attractive looking unit and floats upright very well. Flashing light on top keeps the unit in sight despite the black shell coloring.
- Relatively small size for easy transport and storing.
- Despite the size, this unit is heavy at 5.5 oz. Good luck finding a rod that's slated to sling that much weight. After stops at 3 local fishing shops, I couldn't find anything that wasn't an expensive deep see or surf casting rod. I compromised with a heavy baitcasting rod even though it's max lure weight was 1 1/2 oz. This is a big deal as it will greatly effect the distance you can cast this unit. On my Heavy rod and 40 lb. braid, I only had the confidence to cast about 20 feet, and it will create a giant splash. If there was fish in the area before casting, they likely skedaddled after the cannonball hits the water. Using a baitcaster and spool thumbing, you may be able to "feather" the cast for a lighter touch down, but it will limit your distance.
- 4 hour initial charge time. I hope I never deplete my battery on a multi day camping trip. I may be forced to run my car that long to re-charge.
- Plastic eyelet - This is a big concern to me. Heaven forbid it smacks a boulder or gets dropped right at the eyelet. Good bye $200.
- Connectivity - I did experience some intermittent connection drops, especially at the further reaches of my deplorable 20 ft. casts. This was more of an issue with my first few test casts and I had to reconnect a few times. When I started to settle down and concentrate on an area, the readings were great, but this could be a problem if you will be casting to various places frequently.
- Reading fish - In Raw mode, I saw what often times looked like fish readings. Flipping over to Fish mode, nothing. Probably need more experience on my part.
So far weight and connectivity has been my biggest issue when casting from shore. One thing I began to note was I was spending an awful lot of time casting and viewing the FishHunter instead of picking up my fishing rod and fishing. To maximize my catch rate as a shore fisherman, I'm typically a run and gunner. I use a lot of seek baits that I know will get hit to scout an area and if I don't get hit, I move on and cover more ground. I hope the FishHunter Pro will aid me in this style, but I feel the unit will really become a value when I begin fishing from my float tube. With the slow speed of flipper kicking, and the ability to tether the unit to the float tube, I really think the usefulness will open up. This will be one of my next tests.
One thing I cannot seem to shake is the feeling of, I should have waited and saved my money for the 3D version. One part of me feels it's too expensive for my needs and is overkill, but the other part feels the 3D bottom mapping is a far more valuable tool than the actual "fish finder". After all, if you find the structure, you'll find the fish. I kind of wish I had more than 30 days to evaluate to make that decision.
Hopefully this was helpful to others in my position and I promise to update with further tests.
Update after Float Tube test 6/3/2016:
Since writing this review I have taken the FishHunter Pro out on my float tube on two separate outings. The sonar unit worked far better for me tethered to my float tube than my attempts at casting from shore. The only disconnect I encountered was when I removed the unit from the water to untangle my fishing line during a catch. That is something you will have to deal with if you float the sonar unit out the full 15ft. length. With this length, you will deal with wind and currents moving the unit around. I overcame this by shortening the tether line with a rubber band. The readings were great and I was marking fish all over the lake. Catching the fish is of course a different story! I have not encountered any issues with battery life with the unit and found my iPhone battery charge will deplete twice as fast as the sonar's battery. I will need to learn to conserve the battery life of my phone by not having it on constantly. For the ease of use and functionality for float tubing, I am adding a star. My next test will be using the FishHunter in the salt water harbors near my home.
I purchased the unit to get bottom reading off the beach and I am disappointed with the limited capabilit.
Charged the unit about 4 hours and indicated full charge on the Fishhunter Pro App. on my iPhone 6.
Fished the lake for about 4 hours and battery used about 25% leaving 75% still availabel.
Still working on fine tuning the unit and my skill using the unit . Nevertheless, it definitely can identify fish in the water column. Relatively easy to use.
