Product Review: Humminbird SmartCast Portable Fish Finder

By Greg Holmes

Everything these days is portable. You can take anything with you from television sets to GPS units. So it is reasonable to make the jump over to fishing equipment because many people are not tied down to a boat or just one solitary place to fish. Fish finders have to meet different needs. The boat mounted fish finder would not work for someone who likes to fish from a stream, so there have to be options. The Humminbird SmartCast portable fish finder is the option for people who like to fish wherever there is a chance but without having to have a boat.

Do you want to know how simple and easy it is to use the SmartCast? The whole fish finder is broken into two parts. You have the display and then you have this nifty gadget that looks like a neon duck. That neon duck is actually called the Remote Sonar Sensor. You cast it out into the water where you are fishing and it gives you back “below surface” information. It is that easy to use.

As soon as you have the Remote Sonar Sensor in place you will be able to survey the underwater terrain wherever you are planning to fish. It features a range of 100 feet and can read up to depths of 100 feet, which is very remarkable.

The downside could be that the display is just not as sophisticated as most of the higher priced devices that show topography and fish in color. Yet seeing as how you’re spending about $200 rather than a couple thousand, it really isn’t that important. The only real problem you might have is if the sensor becomes loose in some way and you end up needing to go fishing for it instead of the catch of the day.

The Humminbird SmartCast portable fish finder is not for everyone. Serious, competitive fishermen feel that it is limited in its capabilities. It does not offer GPS layouts and it does not come with pre-loaded maps of the surrounding areas. That being said, its portability does make it extremely attractive to the average person just out fishing for enjoyment or for the dinner table. With its sturdy design and rugged carrying case you can be assured that it will not fall to pieces should it take a little tumble.

It’s always a good idea to read some fish finder reviews before you buy. To get you started, visit our site to read a Eagle Cuda 300 review, and browse the other reviews while you’re there.
