What Can The Deeper Pro Do?

Carp anglers can now use technology to help them create a detailed look at their swims using the Deeper Pro Plus.

Simply by casting this out, you can learn and map out depths by slowly reeling in your Deeper to reveal changes around areas prime for hooking a carp.

These subtle changes in depth can teach you where the carp could be feeding or holding up.

Using the detailed display mode via the Deeper App makes it dead easy to work out the lake bed.

When you find those little shelves or contour changes – these spots could be where carp hang out.

Likewise, the Deeper App can locate where the fish are, which is especially valuable in the winter months when carp like to hold up in one spot.

How the Deeper Pro works

The Deeper Smart Sonar Pro is wireless and is used by simply connecting to your mainline of choice, then casting out into your swim.

Connect with the Deeper app and information is beamed directly to your smartphone.

Wi-FI means that there is internet connection required, with the range been 100m depth and 80m from your phone.

The advanced high-frequency technology means the Deeper Pro can send and receive data very fast and accurately.

Designed to scan the entire water column, you can mark fish, depth, temperature, lakebed structure and of course and it can be saved to memory!

Full instructions on maps and technical information can all be found on the Deeper website.

Advanced features include real-time mapping, unlimited data history and ice fishing mode which is great for winter.

Overall, the Deeper Pro (and other models in the Deeper range) are fantastic if you want lake information fast and easy.

Take a look at all the features below, and the video is well worth watching too!
