Our review on Humminbird Fishin’ Buddy MAX

1.1 Humminbird 410050-1


The good

With dual beam sonar and impressive depth capabilities you will never have to guess what is swimming underneath your boat.

If you have been looking for a durable fish finder that is designed for use with boats, the Fishin’ Buddy MAX might be just what you need.

One of the main advantages of this fish finder is its hands free design, which is always an advantage when you are trying to reel in a large catch.

The small display is incredibly easy to read, even in bright sunlight.


The bad

It has been mentioned in reviews that the lack of a handle can make it difficult to mount and remove the fish finder. While this would make it easier, it should be noted that this unit is designed to fit on several styles of boats and a handle could limit where the fish finder can be placed.



The verdict

If you are looking for a fish finder that is designed mainly for use on boats then the Fishin’ Buddy MAX could be the perfect choice for you. It comes with a portable clamp that easily and securely attaches the transducer to the side of the boat so you don’t have to worry about losing it at high rates of speed or in rough water. The transducer also comes with dual beam sonar and a depth capacity of 600 feet.

1.2 Humminbird 410050-1

The dual beam sonar allows you to see the contours on the bottom, along with any structures and obstacles that might get in your way. Certain species of fish also like to hide in underwater debris and with the ability to detect targets down to 600 feet very little will escape the sonar. When you want to zoom in on a potential target or use the transducer is shallow water simply switch the frequency of the beam.


The sonar will instantly transmit the images to the 3.5 inch color display that is easy to read in low or bright lighting. The screen will display the contours on the bottom, along with depth, water temperature and any fish that are detected swimming nearby. With this fish finder from Humminbird it is easy to find the best places to get a bite on your line.


You will also appreciate the “hands free” design of this fish finder, especially when you need to concentrate on your line. The receiver can be mounted on top of the long transducer pole so you can still see the sonar images without having to take your hands off of your fishing rod. This fish finder will never be responsible for letting “the big one” get away. Everything you need is included with the Fishin’ Buddy MAX, except 8 AA batteries. It is designed to be easily portable, and its clamp style mount allows you to use it almost anywhere. Accurate and easy to operate, even experienced anglers will enjoy the accuracy and convenience you get with this fish finder from Humminbird.
