586c HD

The Hummingbird Fish Finder 586c HD is one of the best full color fish finder models that you can get, without any GPS, SI or DI features. This being said, obviously the price for it becomes quite acceptable. Even without these options, this fish finder is a very reliable device for tracking fish, observing the contour and structure of the bottom and underwater environment.

Needless to say, with the Humminbird 586c HD you will benefit from all the other fish finding basic options that an angler needs, like measuring depth, water temperature, boat speed, and obtain an estimate of the depth the fish are swimming at.

This fish finder has, as its name suggests it, a brilliant full color, high-definition display, with a 640V x 480H pixel resolution. The diagonal of the display is a bit smaller compared to most of the other fish finders in the 500 series. It’s only 4.5″ instead of 5″ but that is hardly an impediment for any angler to interpret what’s under the boat.

The Hummingbird Fish Finder 586c HD has Dual Beam Plus sonar, meaning that you can scan the volume of water under your boat in two major modes: at 200 kHz, for a more condensed view obtained by a sonic beam of 20°, and at 83 kHz, obtaining a wider view caught by a 60° sonar beam. Since it’s a Dual Beam Plus, you can have both views in split screen. It has a PTP Power Output of 2400 watts.

The Humminbird 586c HD offers great results in waters up to 1000 ft. deep. The sonar beam is sensitive enough to identify a jig down to 70 feet, and distinguish separate fish that are as close as 3 inches from one another. Even without any chartplotting or trackplotting features, this device does its fish tracking job excellently, allowing you to land as many big ones as possible.
