Humminbird PiranhaMax 230 Fish Finder User Review

Edit Article |

Posted: Jan 04, 2011 |



Manufactured by the USA based Humminbird Company, the Humminbird PiranhaMax 230 fishfinder utilizes a 20 deg. and 60 deg. sonar beam system which works on 200 kilohertz and 83 kilohertz frequency to a depth of 183 meters (600 ft.). This combined with a smart cast 90 deg. single-beam wireless sonar which has an operating depth of 36.5 meters (120 ft), allows a wider coverage area for detecting and identifying fish and provides more bottom identification with a target separation of as little as two and a half inches.

Utilizing a high speed micro dynamic transducer which enhances performance, the system provides accurate data for speeds up to 60 mph (100kmh) and also provides the user with varying water temperatures transmitted through the transducer.

The PiranhaMax 230 also features a high definition 100mm FSTN liquid crystal display having 160 x 132 lines of resolution with 4 level greyscale which provides a much clearer high definition image of the bottom which clearly defines structures from fish. The 230’s easy one-touch control provides access to its advanced multi-functions, including selective fish ID and target depth. The adjustable back-light for dark conditions has 3 levels of brightness depending on the time of the day or for night-fishing. Fish are viewed below the boat as solid while fish around the boat are viewed using the side beam feature as intangible items but are clearly visible. The system also has user controllable zoom, and advanced technology sensitivity featuring bottom view, depth gauge, adjustable chart speed rate and both fish and bottom alarms. The data is clearly and easily visible at a glance with high definition digital read-outs which can be adjusted to provide high contrast black bottom viewing option.

Robustly constructed to travel all places the PiranhaMax 230 Portable fish finder also possesses memory which can be set to remember the location giving the user the ability to return to exactly the same fishing spot at a later time if desired.

The Humminbird PiranhaMax 230portable fish finder kit also provides a suction mounted transducer option which can be placed on the side of the boat, transom or on the inside of the hull. Because of its portability, the 230 has also been used while fishing from a pier or stationary object, easily attaching the suction mount at water level even with an algae covered surface. Measuring only a little under four and a half inches by around six inches and being three and a quarter inches deep, the PiranhaMax 230 is manufactured to take the hard knocks and is completely water proof with sealed gasket construction.

The kit is comprised of a tough carrying case for transportation, Humminbird XHS 920 transducer with suction cap option, 20 feet of transducer cable including cable wrap for protection, and owner manual. The unit also includes a factory manufacturers 1 year warranty.

A truly remarkable product, the Humminbird PiranhaMax 230 portable fish finder runs on 8 AA alkaline batteries with up to sixteen hours of continued use and is undoubtedly the best portable fish finder on the market and is suitable for all sizes of boats including canoes, dinghies and kayaks.

Humminbird 161 Combo As a Kayak Fish Finder – Review

Because of its size and versatility, the Hummingbird 161 combo and GPS Chartplotter, makes an ideal kayak fish finder as well as an excellent all round fish finding system for other recreational and sport fishing applications.

Offering features such as:

· Complete GPS navigation.
· Accurate Chart Plotting.
· 16 Channel WAAS GPS receiver.
· 4′ diagonal back lit 320V x 240H grayscale LCD display.
· 3000 waypoints.
· 50 routes.
· Tracks: 50 w/20,000 points each

Advanced features of the Humminbird 161 Combo include the ability to freeze the frame and mark structure on sonar in order to be able to return to exactly the same spot if so desired. 

The unit also features selective fish ID which although can’t be completely accurate, it can give the user the ability to at least check the size of the fish before wasting time in regions which don’t provide legal size fish or targeted fish and the ability to separate fish from structure identify. 

The transducer can be mounted on the transom full tilt and swivel or if being used for kayak fishing, can be fitted inside the hull in order to eliminate drag and hamper steering by acting as a unwanted rudder.

With bottom lock featured as well as one touch 2X, 4X and 6X adjustable zoom, the Humminbird 161 Combo truly is a remarkable unit which has been used very successfully as a kayak fish finder.

The option to be able to set up for either salt or freshwater with adjustable target depth enhanced by adjustable backlight for night time fishing adds yet more great features to the unit. 

The standard Humminbird 161 Combo Kayak Fish Finder unit is fitted with a 4 mile high resolution Unimap of inland lakes, rivers and coastal regions within the USA but is also available with targeted regions outside the US depending on where you live. However, the unimaps provided are somewhat obscure and inaccurate which is the only downside I found in testing the unit. 

The Humminbird 161 Combo Kayak Fish Finder with such versatility and compact size is perfect for limited space applications and is completely waterproof for use as a kayak fish finder and is comes with a full 12 months manufacturer’s warranty.

We guarantee much better fishing results. Check out this new revolutionary invention and get ahead of your fishing friends. Buy the Award Winning ‘Esca Lures’ online at http://www.escalure.co.uk/
