Humminbird ICE 35 Ice Fishing Flasher Review

The Humminbird ICE 35 flasher is the entry level model in the Humminbird ICE fishing series of flashers. What most like about the ICE series is the zoom flexibility. Instead of just being able to zoom to the bottom, you can zoom in for details anywhere in the water column. The ICE 35 features a three color fiber optic display with with overlay depth scale, 800 watts of peak-to-peak power and a 200 foot depth-selectable dual frequency sonar.

How To Use The Humminbird ICE 35 Flasher – Demo Mode

This guy takes some time to explain all the features, how to use the flasher and what the heck all the colors and flashing lights mean! A good tip is to run the flasher through the demo mode and use some of the functions so you know what you are looking at before getting out on the ice and letting one of the big ones slip by because you didn’t know!  He mentions that you will have to assemble the flasher when you receive, but it is not that big of a deal. The hardest part of assembly, he said, was getting all the cord tucked back into the transducer. For the low price and features, it is an excellent ice fishing flasher.

Humminbird ICE 35 Review While Ice Fishing

Here is another user who gives his review while having some down time (aka – not catching fish) while ice fishing with the Humminbird ICE 35 flasher. He said he chose the ICE 35 over the Vexilar FL-8 which is in the same price range, because of the zoom capability and a larger screen display on the Humminbird. He says battery life is phenomenal and he has only had to charge the battery twice in the last month or so, using the flasher 2-3 times a week. His biggest complaint is that he is not too crazy about the stand because it rattles, so he puts a glove underneath the unit and the ice to prevent the rattling. It must be noted that he does not have the soft-sided carrying case which the flasher could sit and prevent rattling as well. But the case is sold separately for about $50 and he did not want to pay that much for one, so he just transports it in his backpack. Overall, he says the unit is easy to use and for the price, he could not find anything better for his needs. The higher end models use more colors, but he has found that the three colors on the 35 are sufficient.
