Recently my wife and I purchased a fishing camp trip in Canada. We knew there would be no electronics on the boat, so we hurriedly purchased the Humminbird 140c Fishin' Buddy (Portable) color fishfinder. We were amazed at how accurate the Fishfinder proved to be. It put us on fish we probably would have never realized were there. Was also very helpful finding ridges, flats, drop-offs, etc., etc., and the locations and depths of the fish that were suspended there. We also used 'marker buoys' to enable us to troll and pick up more fish. All in all, a very handy little gadget that turned what could have been a ho-hum fishing trip into a very enjoyable trip. Battery life is surprising, but be prepared while on the lake. The 2nd day we started getting erratic bottom signals and occasional shutdowns, so we changed batteries and problem solved. Expectedly, it can be hard to read if not set up near the fisherman. Also, I tied a line around the unit in case it were to become dislodged from the holding bracket, which is a piece of art, but somewhat in need of more security. When done fishing, very easy to remove from holding bracket and zoom to the next fishing location. Granted, this is not a state of the art electronic fish locator, but when faced with the possibility of no fishfinder at all, this is a very handy and dependable gadget. We used it every day (6 days) during our vacation.

Bought it last may ,didn't have time to fish till March. Finally! What a awesome device, have been looking for something like this for years. The side scan is incredible. I've fished a lake twice now. Less than25' deep . Shows structure under unit very well & the side scan shows fish & stuff just great. I caught fish most of the time it showed them! I've always wanted a unit that excelled in less than 30' of water & this is it, yes it does wobble a little at fast trolling speeds but still does its job while doing so. I'm not easily empresd by most products nowadays, they always need to be modified to suit my needs, but this is as close to perfect as you can get for a unit that does so much & so adaptable to so many things. The batt.s will last about 12hrs if you run settings high &fast . I left it in the rain over night to be sure it was waterproof ,it is. I can't say enough good about this 140c ...thanks hummingbird for getting it right! T.B.C.

This is a very good fish finder, It even picked up the minow on my line with the side viewer. It works on banks and docks too. It is very user friendly and has a bright and clear read out. I highly reccomend it. No complaints so far.

VERY EASY TO USE, JUST REMEMBER TO READ DIRECTIONS BEFORE USING LIKE MOST MEN DON'T. PUT ME IN THE FISH COMMUNITY THE FIRST TIME I USED IT, BATTERIES LASTED A LONG TIME, RECOMMEND BUYING D CELL RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES IF YOU FISH A LOT LIKE I DO. PUT IT ON MY CAROLINA SKIFF AND HAD TO RIG A SET UP BECAUSE CLAMP DIDNT FIT MY BOAT. OTHER THEN THAT I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANY LEVEL FISHING PERSON. WELL WORTH THE MONEY SPENT.GOOD LUCK AND KEEP FISHING.
