Out of all of the fish finder brands available on the market, the Humminbird brand is one of the most popular among anglers. One fish finder produced by said brand is the Humminbird 120 Fishin’ Buddy Fish Finder. This fish finder has the potential to substantially increase the success you experience on your next fishing trips.

Display

The Humminbird 120 Fishin’ Buddy features a display that is four inches when measured diagonally. The display of this fish finder unit is definitely on the small size, so it may take some time for you to get used to this unit if you’re used to units ones with larger displays.

The monochrome display of this fish finder unit supports 8 Level Grayscale. Therefore, anglers may experience some trouble distinguishing details.

Fortunately, the display makes up for its small size and lack of color with its 240 x 150 resolution, which is impressively high for such a small gadget.

SideFinding Sonar

Unlike many fish finder units on the market, the Humminbird 120 Fishin’ Buddy sports a side-imaging sonar. Such a sonar proves very useful when it comes to finding fish near a shoreline holding off the bottom. Therefore, you will experience much more success when casting at the shoreline from a lake.

This fish finder will allow you to see fish at a distance of 30 or 40 feet from the sides of your boat. Without a fish finder unit with a side finding sonar, you would never be able to spot these fish, unless they happened to make a rise.

Pros

Besides the impressive display resolution and the advanced sonar technology, the Humminbird 120 Fishin’ Buddy Fish Finder has many advantages.

One huge advantage of this fish finder unit is that it is completely waterproof. While you’re out on a lake or in the sea, everything in your boat is liable to get wet. Since this fish finder is waterproof, you’ll be able to completely focus on locating and catching fish instead of preventing your fish finder from getting wet.

Another pro of this Humminbird fish finder is the long battery life. There’s nothing more disappointing to an angler than truly enjoying and getting into a fishing trip and then having your fish finder die on you. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about such a scenario with this fish finder, as it has a battery life of up to 30 hours.

The Humminbird 120 Fishin’ Buddy Fish Finder is perfect for fishermen on a budget. This fish finder unit typically sells for under $200, which is definitely a bargain when you consider the price tags of other Humminbird units and other fish finder units in general. Best of all, you get plenty of advanced technology for such a low price.

Cons

As with everything, the Humminbird 120 Fishin’ Buddy is not without its flaws. The main flaws of this fish finder unit are its small size and lack of a colored display.

Besides the more obvious disadvantages, a huge disadvantage of this fish finder is the region lock. This unit displays all information in the imperial system and it is impossible to switch to the metric system, making this device very difficult for most non-Americans to use. This fish finder unit is one of the very few Humminbird units to have this region lock.

For such a low price, the Humminbird 120 Fishin’ Buddy Fish Finder has lot to offer to you, as a fisherman, whether you’re a greenhorn or a fishing master. While this product does have its disadvantages, the advantages of this unit more than make up for them.
