How do you use a fishhawk?
Which it is and so then i’m gonna push. Start. And it’s ready. So i’m gonna take. It drop it down to the bottom. We are 93. Feet. In fact the cameraman take a look at that depth finder.
Although boating is fun for you, it takes place in an environment that is hard on your boat. Salt, high RPMs, rough water, etc. can all take their toll on boat, engines, and components. This makes a pre-sale inspection of a pre-owned boat and extended warranty coverage on both new and pre-owned boats excellent investments.The Fish Hawk X4 is the gold standard by which “speed and temp” systems are judged. You’ll find the X4 in more boats than any other speed and temperature system on the market. The system provides mechanical speed at surface, surface temperature, probe speed, and water temperature at the probe. To consistently catch fish you need to know lure speed and sub-surface temperatures. That’s what the Fish Hawk X4 does better than anything else.
Boat and Tackle is a fishing store built by fishermen for fishermen. The two owners have nearly a century of fishing experience between them and are extremely passionate about the sport. Their love of fishing, coupled with the innovative technologies in the industry, have led them to create the ultimate store. If you are a serious fisher who wants the best, you have come to the right place.The Fish Hawk X4 + Depth Probe provides anglers with vital information such as water temp, trolling speed and depth at the downrigger ball. By using sonar signal to send data back to the boat, the on-board water pressure sensor provides true depth information. This a replacement probe for the X4D system. You must have the Fish Hawk X4D Display to view probe depth.
I had the original Fish Hawk 840, which I wasn’t impressed with. The battery life was very short (ran on 9V battery), and the signal was iffy below 50 feet in depth. I upgraded the probe last summer, and was impressed at the performance. The battery life improved (4 AA’s) significantly as well as a much better signal. I added the new X4 display this spring, and it is well lit, and the displayed numbers are big and easy to read. Very happy with the new X4 display.
Nice response from service request. I was surprised when my unit failed since I have friends with much older units. Overall I am happy with the product ( quite expensive) and the service response from Fish Hawk. I think it is a valuable tool on my boat fishing Lake Michigan.
The X4 System shows water temperature and trolling speed from the downrigger ball and the surface. Easy to install and simple to operate, the X4 gives you the information you need to catch more fish when trolling!
Was very easy to set up and test. All the necessary parts were included in one package. Have used other brands for many years, but can already tell this one is going to be much better.
The X4’s proven reliability makes it standard equipment for serious trolling anglers everywhere. It provides information from lure depth that’s needed to consistently catch more fish.
What is the warranty on the fish hawk X4?
Warranty. TWO-YEAR WARRANTY Fish Hawk Electronics are fully guaranteed against any defect in parts or workmanship for 2-years from the date of purchase for the original owner. Cached
If you want to find fish right away and be at the right speed and temp doing that the fish hawk is the only way to go. Easy to install and easy to use day or night on the water in any condition, especially knowing how great the LCD screen and probe are sealed so well. And the probe water sensitive on an off switch saves on the batteries. GREAT JOB FISH HAWKA fish finder transmits ultrasonic waves from the transducer mounted on the bottom of the boat. The transmitted ultrasonic waves advance straight towards the seabed, but if there is an object, i.e. fish school or rocks, they will reflect. Part of them will reflect back to the ship’s bottom, which will then be captured by the transducer. By measuring the time elapsed between transmission and reception of ultrasound, the depth of the fish school will be calculated.
What is Falcon product warranty?
All Falcon laptop systems come with a one-year standard warranty and one-year of Falcon Overnight service (extensions to three years total warranty and Falcon Overnight service are available at time of purchase for additional cost). This warranty covers parts, labor and shipping to and from the customer.
A fish finder consists of two parts: main unit (with a screen) and transducer. The main unit should be located where it can be easily accessed in the cabin or wheelhouse, etc. The transducer should be mounted on the boat’s bottom either through hull or in-hull installation. Please bear in mind that the performance of a fish finder depends largely on whether the transducer is properly mounted on the boat’s bottom. An improperly mounted transducer may result in failure in capturing reflected waves or other serious defects. To avoid these troubles, you should consult with a technical dealer on how to properly install the transducer prior to actual installation.
What is the difference between the FishHawk X4 and the X4D?
X4 displays top temp, top speed, ball temp and ball speed. x4d displays top speed, ball depth, ball speed and ball temp.
A fish finder helps detect a fish school and provides various underwater information, such as water depth, distribution of fish school, and the condition of the seabed by transmitting ultrasonic waves into the sea and receiving its reflection. Part of sonic or ultrasonic waves, which have been transmitted, reflect back to the source when they hit an object (e.g. fish school or seabed). A fish finder uses this ultrasonic reflection characteristic.The ultrasonic waves from the fish finder are transmitted directly underneath the boat. If they hit a fish school, very weak reflections will come back to where the ultrasonic waves were originally transmitted. The reflection received is converted into an electrical signal and subsequently sent to the receiving circuit of the fish finder. The receiving circuit amplifies the weak signals, and the processor unit processes them to generate images to be displayed on the screen. As the result, the image will be displayed on the color LCD. Stronger reflections are shown in orange or red, and weaker ones are shown in green or blue on the screen. A fish school of high density or rocks on the seabed return stronger signals, so they will be shown in a reddish color, while a fish school of low density or small fish will be shown in a bluish color. The color presentation can clearly illustrate the undersea condition.
My son and I have been fishing salmon on Lake Michigan for years. We thought we were doing pretty well. Several years ago I installed the Fish Hawk X4 and it took us to the next level. Knowing the water current direction, speed and temp down deep makes a huge difference. No more guessing and if I had the choice between a fish finder and the Fish Hawk, I’d choose the Fish Hawk hands down.The fish hawk is amazing unit. Don’t know how i fished without it. Karen Fine was amazing and help me out right away and was very knowledgeable. I had my new unit back in my hand in a few days. She tested it right away and found out issues and got me a new unit out to me without a hitch. Thanks again Karen and I will be bragging about my fish hawk to my buddies again.
How do GPS fish finders work?
A fish finder uses this ultrasonic reflection characteristic. The ultrasonic waves from the fish finder are transmitted directly underneath the boat. If they hit a fish school, very weak reflections will come back to where the ultrasonic waves were originally transmitted.
I was blown away by the support staff and customer service. The follow up was second to none. Thanks for being so prompt and helpful. I would rather fish without a fish finder than my Fish Hawk.Karen, was very efficient and friendly. Spee-dee delivered it and I had it in 2 days! Wish there was a more fail safe as my Downrigger cable broke at the termination at no fault of the probe. A audio alert would be nice in case the probe gets close to the lake bottom. Thanks for a good product and great service. Good Job!
Love the product. use to have a depth raider and thats absolute garbage compared to your product. I have broken the probe a couple times now. Was told thats caused by not unscrewing the cap after use. I wasn’t aware of that until I spoke with other fisherman that have had the same problem. Was wondering if using lithium ion batteries would make a difference?
