    Default Fish spy review

    Hi lads,

    My fishing time if very limited, combine that with living up north and needing to travel a long way to fish and itís not the best!

    Iím looking for something to help me save time on the bank and thought about a fish spy. Has anyone tried them?

    Please no replies telling me I should use a marker rod, I simply donít have the time to spend hours doing it on often new day ticket waters

    Any genuine reviews greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    You’d be better off with a Deeper Pro if you want to save time finding spots as it is far more useful and versatile. A few casts will tell you features, depth, weedbeds etc. A Fish Spy has it’s limitations and is next to useless in coloured water.

    Cheers pal. I have a boat with a decent echo and to be honest I can’t make head nor tail out of it!!! I have tried to learn how to read them by watching every vid I can but no joy! I figure you can’t go wrong watching a camera. I was thinking what’s it like if the water isn’t clear

    Limited IMO a friend has one and itís connectivity is poor an iPad sure you can receive the data later on but really do as we have done for decades stick a marker rod out.

    I have said this before and I’ll say it again, I don’t care how good you are, there is no chance in hell you can tell what your fishing over using a marker rod. You can tell the difference between very thick weed and clear gravel yes, but when it comes to thin weed, silt, Clay, silk weed etc especially at distance then not a chance! It’s guess work. I have been on a lake in France. And we done it. Casting about for hours till we all agreed what the spot was like, then out in the boat with an aqua scope and it was nothing like what we thought
