Vexilar PP1812D Review
- best buy
- catch more fish
I can’t believe I ever tried to ice fish without the Vexilar PP1812D fish finder. It made an odd rubbing/grinding noise at first, I called the fish finder manufacturer and they did say it was normal for the first few uses while the brushes get broken in so don’t be alarmed. This unit also makes a humming sound when it is on, that is totally normal, you will quickly associate it with fish. The zoom feature that blows up the bottom 6 ft of the water column is amazing, you can see everything come right off the bottom, now the only trick is giving them something they want to eat.
This item is great, the ability to keep interference away from other devices when marking fish works great. Can’t wait to use the bottom lock mode in Canada in June with the boat.
best buy for your money. the auto-zoom is awesome for perch and eyes. i wish i would have had it last year when the bite was a lot better. having the digital depth read out is a lot quicker then looking at the flasher, not that it doesn’t tell you the same thing though. the spot for the tackle box is really handy i ended up putting most of my jigs in there instead of my main tackle box just so i have one less thing to carry.
Works great and I would not own one without the depth gauge on it, kinda hard to understand on depths over 40 ft for me but might get use to it later on only have fished with it twice and it has help me catch more fish when fishing in 20 ft of water.
I bought this fish finder for my husband as a birthday present. He loved it and we went ice fishing the very next day. Didn’t catch anything but was fun to watch!
