Deeper Smart Sonar Pro+ Review: A Truly Portable Fish Finder

I spent my childhood growing up on the banks of the Deschutes river near Maupin Oregon. How I would have loved to have a bobber style fish finder in my arsenal. It would have helped wonders when trying to figure out where the fish were laying in the slick hole.

After seeing this fish finder I knew I was going to have to do a Deeper Smart Sonar Pro+ review. It was one of those toys I just couldn't resist. I hope that it will help you as you fill out your fishing arsenal as well and you get more strikes from the bank of your favorite river.

The Pro+ is meant to be used by bank anglers and river fishermen. You just turn it on, start the smart phone or tablet app, and cast away. It operates on an independent Wi-Fi connection that is not connected to any cell signal making it usable even when you are out of cell range.

​It uses a dual frequency sonar that makes the fish stand out nice and clear. You can also scan areas that your boat fish finder may not pick up, like next to a log jam or close to the bank brush.

Helpful Tip #1

The Deeper Smart Sonar PRO+ uses both bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It is recommended that you use Wi-Fi because it has a greater range than bluetooth.

Helpful Tip#2

This fish finder has a setting for ice fishing so you can walk around looking for the spot that all the fish are at.

Just stick it in your tackle box and you are never without a fish finder again. With 6 hours of battery life, you just made a good day fishing great.
