What’s up guys! Bird from birdknowsbest.com doing a review on the NorCross HawkEye F33P Portable Fish Finder I just want to give you a quick rundown on what you get with the unit. You get the Fish Finder, the sensor that goes in the water, a mounting bracket, and a lanyard to put the unit around your neck.
First thing your do, go to the back, pop open the battery case; it does not come with batteries and it takes four AAA batteries. Once you get the batteries in you hold this green button for three seconds and that turns the power on. The Depth, this little bar here is your sensitivity reading your power save, on and off, backlight on and off, the audible fish finder noise and the actual battery left in the unit, and this is the finder, the depth finder for the fish. Then you hit the Setup button, hold that for three seconds and these icons on the top will blink, and you click the hit Setup, to change between if you want to turn them on or off. So I’m going to turn that off, you hit Enter, Off, etc.
So I’m turning the Fish Finder Noise on and off right there. If you want to change the feet to meters, just hold the Setup and enter for five seconds and you can cycle between feet and meters.All right, I’ve connected the lanyard so you can use it around your neck, then all you’re going to do is you get 35 feet of cable here’s the float, the actual Fish Finder sonar itself you’re just going to take this plug, plug it into the top of the unit, and then you’re going to take — you want to make sure that there’s at least six inches between the actual sonar and the float; and to adjust that, there’s a little plug here you can pop out, so you can just move this down, and then just insert that in like that.
So I have just lengthened that. Then you simply just take this, throw it overboard and you’re good to go. NorCross HawkEye F33PFish Finder weighs just over one pound. All right guys, I’ve got the Norcross Hawkeye F33P with me here in my kayak, as you can see. It’s currently showing two and half feet of water. Really easy to set up the cables here connected to the device, and then off the side, you’ve got your sensor. I’ve got about 18 inches, kind of buries what you want between the sensor and the bogey here, this orange bogey.
You want to make sure this part is connected too so this thing doesn’t slide up and down the line.We’re in about three feet of water. I have the audio sensor up here on the right turn down so when you mark a fish, you will see a fish. From what I’ve seen it, it does show fish. It’s not as sensitive as a higher end one but it’s still totally adequate for a canoe, a kayak or a small boat like that. One of the other great features that I like about this — Oh there you go there’s a fish on the top of the water. moving across. You take this lanyard and just put it around your neck because space is kind of limited when you’re in a kayak, so you can look at the Fish Finder here, see what you want, adjust the sensitivity. It works from 1.5 to 99 feet deep and it’s got a 25 degree sonar beam so it shoots down in like a 25 degree, kind of Christmas tree below where the sensor is.
One of the other things I want to show you is to show you that it’s waterproof, so I’m just going to take some water and splash it on it as it were if it were raining in a boat and you can still hear it beeping and marking fish..Alright, so we’ve got it on the boat here, and it’s showing 9.5 on the right and 9.9. It’s varying; we’re floating, but 9.6, 10. So it’s similar and from what we’ve seen, the fish that comes across the big Fish Finder also shows up on ours. Fish?
There’s a fish on the top for both. Alright guys I’ve had the summer to use the HawkEye and I’m really impressed with it for a couple of reasons. First of all it’s got long batteries; 30 hours on four AAAs. It’s waterproof; it’s got the neck lanyard so when you’re in a kayak, or in a canoe, you can easily see it. It’s got 35 feet of cable, works from one to 99 feet, but at a $50 to $70 price point available on Amazon.
Again, it’s the NorCross HawkEye F33PFish Finder and I recommend it five stars. If you like this video, be sure to check out my other videos and subscribe to my channel. Check out my website at birdknowsbest.com and until next time,Ca Caw!
