Full Product Details

The MarCum ShowDown 5.6 Digital Fish Finder boasts a powerful 8,000 watts, enough power to provide an incredibly discerning 1/2 inch target separation, with plenty of juice to run the potent interference rejection system, zoom and auto bottom-lock zoom.

Loads of features and functionality usually means a fish finder that's confusing to understand and operate. But the ShowDown 5.6 Digital Fish Finders simple intuitive operation makes threading waxworms onto your hook seem tricky by comparison. Check out the display—vertical, just like the water column. Top is the surface, bottom is bottom, and every signal in between is nothing but your lure surrounded by fish. And since there are no moving parts, batteries last far longer, running as quietly as a yawning minnow.

  • 20-degree Transducer with 6-feet of cable
  • 8,000-watts Peak-to-Peak Power
  • Moveable Zoom – Infinitely Adjustable, anywhere in the water column
  • 10 levels of Interference Rejection
  • Surface clutter elimination
  • 25 Sensitivity settings
  • 240-foot Range with Automatic Depth Scale function
  • Auto Bottom Lock Zoom - adjusts to the bottom 25% of the water column
  • Daylight Viewable Backlit Display
  • Ice-Mode activates Internal Heater to aid LCD in extreme conditions
  • Soft Pack
  • 12-volt 9-amp rechargeable battery with charger

The MarCum ShowDown 5.6 Digital Fish Finder is made in the U.S.A.

Great Unit to use for ice fishing. (from prior model)
Pros: Long Battery Life, Easy to Read, Zoom window
Cons: Plastic Transducer Arm, Bag wear, Not Color, software updates not free
Best Uses: ICE FISHING
Comments: I bought this unit when they first came out and were manufactured by Aqua-Vu. Marcum bought it from them and have been making them ever since. My 13yr old son loves it. I also like it over my Elite-5 that I am using from my boat with the ice kit. Since my unit was an original I have had to send it in for 2 software updates. Marcum service is awesome. During one of my software updates they didn't have the seal placed correctly and ended up pinching the seal. I was able to return it and they fixed it for free...as they should. I broke 2 plastic transducer arms. After recently breaking it for the second time I purchased a new arm from someone on Etsy who makes them out of aluminum ($40 shipped). My bag is getting worn on the bottom from getting stuck to the ice. I am planning on spraying the bottom area with a rubber spray (Plasti-Coat). Other than the two wear and breakage problems I really do love this unit. I will be looking to eventually get a second one to replace the elite-5.

Not a Vexlar in shallow water but better for deep water. (from prior model)
Comments: I like the unit but it does need to be upgraded to withstand normal ice fishing use. Stronger case and a transducer float would help. Service from Marcum was excellent.good unit overall. Hard to compete with a split screen sonar with zoom. This unit won't show the bottom contour like some of the competitors.

Great sonar (from prior model)
Pros: Easy to use
Best Uses: ICE FISHING
Comments: I picked up one last season and it made ice fishing so much more enjoyable. A lot of features in this little sonar! Zooming in is a great feature, compact size and powerful. Its very simple to use and I never had interference from other sonars out on the ice, about the only thing this doesn't do compared to a $800-$1,000 model is mark GPS spots. I've seen other high dollar sonars and I prefer this one! Pretty much open the box, set the sensitivity when your out on the ice and prepare to catch fish.

Great product!   (from prior model)
Comments: Very easy to use. 15hrs on the ice with no power loss! Fished in 15 feet of water watching the bottom and it picked up fish swimming by at 2 feet. Moved my lure up, and caught fish.
