NorCross HawkEye F33P Fish Finder Review

For many fishermen, actually catching the fish is just half the battle. In fact, many anglers experience more trouble locating the fish than ensnaring them. Fortunately, you can make the process of locating the fish far easier for you by using a fish finder unit. One popular handheld unit among anglers is the NorCross HawkEye F33P.

The Display

Since the NorCross HawkEye F33P is a handheld device, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the unit has a rather small display. Measured diagonally, the display measures at approximately 2.3 inches. Fortunately, the impressive 160 x 132 resolution more than makes up for the rather tiny size of the display.

This fish finder’s display was made for the outdoors, so everything will be clear to you, whether you’re in the shade or in the direct sunlight. Due to the LCD protector and the backlit display, you won’t have to deal with any condensation or eye strain.

Floating Sonar Sensor

The NorCross HawkEye F33P fish finder utilizes the floating sonar sensor to detect fish below your boat. The unit uses a sonar beam angle that is approximately 25 degrees. The extreme width of this sonar beam angle enables the fish finder unit to deliver accurate readings of structure, depth, and fish from down to about 100 feet.

Unlike most fish finder units, the NorCross HawkEye F33P has multiple sensitivity settings. There are a total of four sensitivity settings. The concept is rather straightforward and simple. If you decide to increase the sensitivity, the screen will display smaller details and a broader view. Therefore, you will be able to see most of the debris and clutter in the water. Overall, sensitivity is useful if the waters you’re fishing in aren’t clear in the least.

Look at the price tag for the NorCross HawkEye F33P in any store and you’ll immediately see one of this unit’s many advantages. At about $90 or so in most stores, this fish finder unit is a complete steal. Most fish finder units on the market sell for hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of dollars.

Another advantage of this fish finder unit is that it is handheld. This is very handy as you’ll be able to fish from anywhere in the boat. There will be no need to be glued to one spot in your boat just because your fish finder unit is right there. In fact, you’ll be able to use this fish finder on the shoreline or on a bridge as well. Fortunately, the small size of the unit makes it very easy to hold and handle.

Yet another advantage of the NorCross HawkEye F33P fish finder is how easy it is to use. In fact, this unit is perfect for anglers who are beginners when it comes to fish finders. To use this unit, all you need to do is turn it on and throw the sonar sensor. Immediately, the NorCross HawkEye F33P will be ready to use.


The main disadvantage of this fish finder unit is that it is not waterproof in the least, which is rather disappointing for a product that’s made to be used around tons of water. Overall, if you accidentally drop this unit into the water, you shouldn’t expect it to work anymore. In fact, the NorCross Hawkeye F33P may cease to work if it’s splashed with a substantial amount of water.

Overall, the NorCross HawkEye F33P is definitely more than worth the price. At less than $100, this fish finder unit is truly a bargain for all the features and technology you’re getting. While this unit does have its disadvantages, the many benefits of this fish finder manages to minimize them.
