FishTrax intelligent sonar delivers precise fish finder readings up to 240'.
Audible fish alarm signals the presence of fish. VariableZone water
temperature sensor shows water temperature throughout the water column. Weed
and rock indicators indicate bottom composition. Glare-Free icon LCD with LED
backlight offers excellent readability. EasyTouch user interface makes system

installed in your kayak, canoe or dingy taking up all your precious room.
Leaving you with more room for other gear.
Simply turn the power on, toss the unique floating sonar sensor
from the shoreline, bridge, or boat and instant depth, fish, weed, and bottom
contour readings are now in the palm of your hand.

How To Catch More Fish With Hawkeye® Fish Finders
Adjust the Sensitivity:
There are 5 user selectable sensitivity settings to choose from. It greatly
depends on the clarity and/or depth of the water. Very clear water allows for
a moderate sensitivity setting. Conversely, dirty water requires a higher
sensitivity setting to target detail but will increase the irritating false
readings. Targeting deep water fish generally requires greater sensitivity,
especially in stained or dirty water. Salt and brackish water also require a
comparatively higher sensitivity setting. While this analysis may seem
confusing, the concept is simple. As the unit's sensitivity is elevated, a
broader view and smaller details show on the screen. But, with a broader and
stronger view comes more clutter and debris. The clearer the water, the less
sensitivity needed to get accurate details and vice-versa.
Use the Fish Alarm:
You can set the FishTrax™ 1 to sound an audible alarm when a group of fish are
detected. Turn it on, and when a fish passes under the sonar sensor, an
audible alarm will sound. You can then use the fish depth scale to drop your
bait to a depth that will get it in front of the fish. Leave the alarm on if
you are using a crank bait so that you do not have to steadily watch for fish
on the screen. If you hear the alarm, gently toss your bait at least 20'
beyond the sonar sensor, allow the bait to drop to the depth of the fish
alarm, and retrieve as recommended for the targeted species.
Here are some ideas for maximizing the usefulness of the Side Scan Adapter:
Attach it to a dock piling and scan sideways for fish swimming by. Attach it
to a boat, kayak, or canoe hull and slow troll for fish, all the while keeping
a look out for fish behind or in front of you. Attach it to a broom stick
handle and search for the best fishing location. Attach it to a broom stick
and seek out the fish hiding away from your fishing hole while ice fishing.
Broom Stick Side-Scanning
By attaching the optional Side-Scan Adapter to an ordinary broom stick or
paint roller handle purchased from a local hardware store, you can scan for
fish suspended in the water column within 240' (75M) of your location. Attach
the sensor to a handle, lower the sensor into the water, and slowly move the
sensor in a manner that will allow the signal to search the desired location
(a sweeping motion similar to using a flashlight is most effective). Keep in
mind the sonar signal is emitted from the base of the sensor. Scan down,
sideways, or any combination of the two. Remember, to get depth and bottom
contour and composition readings you will have to aim the signal at a solid
object within 240' (75M), however FISH readings will be accurate, even if the
depth reading is "---"
