Humminbird Ice Helix 7 CHIRP GPS G2N All-Season Combo

Humminbird is rolling out a new line-up of Ice Helix models for the 2018 ice fishing season!  At the front of the pack is the all-new Ice Helix 7 CHIRP GPS G2N All-Season Combo – a complete, networkable fish finder package that comes with both an ice fishing kit and the accessories needed for boat mounting for open water use! **

Other Ice Helix models for 2018 are the Ice Helix 7 CHIRP GPS G2 Combo and the Ice Helix 5 CHIRP GPS G2 Combo. ****

The Best “Flashers” On The Ice Today???

The Ice Helix 7 and Ice Helix 5 took the ice fishing world by storm!  Anglers love the high-definition wide-screen flat-panel displays, the traditional flasher displays, and the interference rejection settings.  Now add in the benefits of 2D chart views and precision gps positioning and mapping!  It’s easy to understand why these units are so popular with ice anglers!

Features That Make The Ice Helix CHIRP G2 Units The Best!

Ice Helix CHIRP G2 units offer multiple screen views for ice anglers. Flasher view features a split-screen with 2-D Sonar, allowing anglers to also view history of their bait and the how the fish react to it.  Other views include Flasher/Sonar Zoom, Flasher/Chart, Sonar/Chart, and Sonar/Sonar Zoom. The display is ultra-responsive with a resolution that’s four times greater than flasher-only models.  And there’s not the humming sound that accompanies traditional mechanical flashers!

CHIRP sonar optimizes pulsing sonar signals for greater target separation.  Unlike traditional sonar which operates at a single, constant frequency, CHIRP provides more detail and clarity.  Ice anglers using CHIRP can see the separation between bottom, bait and fish on the screen, instead of all three blending into one color on their flasher!

Ice Helix CHIRP G2 units also feature Humminbird’s easy-to-use Interference Rejection feature. Fishing on the ice in close quarters with other sonar units means unwanted interference, making screens difficult to read (if not completely unusable!).  Interference Rejection allows anglers to cancel out competing signals, resulting in a screen with no interference or noise.  This was a real issue when previous “open water” sonars were used for ice fishing.  They just couldn’t tune out the interference from other sonars as well as real “ice fishing flashers”.  Those days are gone!  Ice Helix CHIRP G2 units have excellent Interference Rejection and it works very well, making fishing that much more productive and enjoyable!

The built-in precision GPS and Humminbird Basemap functions effortlessly with Humminbird LakeMaster and SmartStrike maps.  Quickly locate productive water and place waypoints on precise spots. Ice Helix CHIRP G2 units are also equipped with AutoChart Live.  This allows anglers (in open water) to create real-time maps of depth contours, bottom hardness and vegetation.  These maps can be used for fishing at any time of the year!

Year-‘Round Functionality And Versatility

The new Ice Helix 7 CHIRP GPS G2N All-Season Combo is networkable with other Humminbird Ethernet-capable units, as well as Minn Kota iPilot LINK (G2N is networkable, G2 is non-networkable).  Take full advantage of all the ice fishing features during the hard water season!  Move it to a boat for the open water season!  Plug it in to an Ethernet cable to make it part of a fully integrated networked unit!

 

** The Ice Helix 7 CHIRP GPS G2N All-Season Combo comes with a CHIRP ice transducer, professional grade carrying case and portable ice bag, mounting hardware, a 9 amp-hour battery and charger.  Also included for boat mounting are a transom-mount CHIRP transducer with temperature, gimbal bracket and 6’ power cord.

Go back in time just a few years, and a good gas-powered auger was a staple for nearly every serious ice fisherman.  The power, speed and reliability of a 3HP or 2HP gas engine, spinning an 8- or 10- inch auger, was a key component for moving, finding fish, staying on fish, and being able to put in a full day on the ice.

Times have changed.  The gas and oil and noise and 2-stroke smoke of those gas-powered augers has been replaced by the power, speed, reliability and quiet cutting of today’s electric augers featuring lithium ion batteries.

The Ion Electric Auger from Ardisam was the first, and is still one of the best.  After that came the Ion X Electric Auger and the StrikeMaster Lithium 40V Electric Auger, both of which have higher capacity batteries for longer life and more holes.

The Ion X and StrikeMaster 40V are both available in 8- and 10- inch versions, and both feature high capacity 5-amp hour batteries that drill many holes through many inches of ice.  Remove the battery when not in use and keep it warm, and many fishermen will get a full day’s use out of just 1 battery.  Add a 2nd battery and you’re almost guaranteed to get in a full day of fishing, no matter how many holes you drill.

These augers have great track records – they’re strong, they’re reliable, and they work great!

And there’s an impressive list of benefits to ice fisherman …..

You don’t need to “start” electric augers, you don’t need to let them warm up, and you don’t need to listen to them idle between holes.  Ready to drill a hole?  Press the button and the drill turns instantly, at full power.  Finished drilling a hole?  Release the button and the auger stops.  They’re so quiet, the only thing you’ll hear is the auger blades shaving away the ice.  And there’s no smoke and fumes from electric augers so they’re ideal for drilling holes inside a shelter.

Plan on drilling a lot of holes?  These augers advertise 1,600 inches of drilling capacity — if you’re on 16 inches of ice, that’s 100 holes on a single battery charge.

Tired of lugging around that beast of a gas-powered auger?  These electric augers are lightweight, weighing in around 22 or 24 lbs, and are just as strong and durable as those heavy gas-powered workhorses.

Tired of scooping the slush out of all those holes you drilled?  These electric augers feature reverse …. simply drill your hole, hit the reverse switch, and flush the ice slush out of the hole and under the ice.

In a hurry to get fishing?  These electric augers cut through the ice just as fast as your buddy’s gas-powered auger, and you’ll be drilling holes while he’s still mixing gas and oil, filling the tank, priming and choking, and pulling pulling pulling away on the starter cord.

At Pro Fishing Supply, our pro staffer anglers use and recommend both the Ion X and StrikeMaster Lithium 40V augers.  Both augers have proven to be fast and reliable and to stand up to hard use on the ice.

Once again, we are offering a FREE extra set of auger blades (while supplies last) with any 8 inch or 10 inch Ion X or StrikeMaster 40V auger.  And for the 2018 season we have a special price on a 2nd battery for the StrikeMaster 40V auger (if purchased at the same time as the auger, while supplies last).

If you’re not sure one of these electric augers is right for you, do yourself a favor and check with the guys who are using them.  These augers are taking over a huge chunk of the ice fishing market, and on many days they’ll be the most common augers on the ice.  And as always, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have on either of these augers.
