Portable fish finders have become more and more popular over the years as people can’t seem to get enough with mobile apps and using their smartphones all the time. In most cases, they’re cheaper compared to their full-size counterparts, which is why they’re becoming so critically acclaimed. I decided to go for such a portable alternative once I realized that none of the options I had available came with a display that satisfied my need for accuracy. A black and white fish finder was out of the question but I couldn’t afford to get a chart plotter that cost around seven hundred dollars. So, in the end, I resorted to ordering the Deeper Smart mostly because I noticed it was compatible with my iPhone 5s, which, in my opinion, has a good resolution. Plus, I have an iPad that I don’t seem to find any use for, which is also a great fit for the complimentary app offered by the manufacturer.
I like to think of myself as a rather versatile fisherman, in that I never say no to a trip once one of my friends proposes it. I’ve fished in various kinds of boats over the years and I enjoy kayak fishing, as well. In other words, what I needed was a product that could satisfy my flexibility. One of the first things that are worth mentioning is that the Deeper Smart costs less than two hundred dollars, which is more than reasonable, in my opinion. Once the box was delivered to my home, I was lucky enough to come across the Deeper YouTube channel, where I watched all the videos that showed me just how I was supposed to use the device. Not all fish finding apps are created the same, in that I’ve noticed that the owner feedback on this one seems to revolve around the fact that it takes the cake when it comes to precision.
I downloaded the application from the App Store and tried out the product along with my iPhone once I went on a trip with my friends. I am enchanted by the way this device works because I’ve never seen the data displayed so accurately before. Believe it or not, I was able to take my fishing to a completely new level by bringing home as many as seven basses, whereas just a week before, I caught just two. The app is very easy to operate and raises no technical issues. I’m not the most tech-savvy person out there, so that was something I had to note. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to try out the Deeper Smart when ice fishing but that’s just because the season isn’t right, for now. I’m looking forward to testing out all the functionalities of the app and device per se, as it seems to exceed my expectations up until now.
