I recieved my TD and tested it just yeterday while out for lakers, it performed as described. The trout were located in the temp zone between 48 and 52 degrees and roughly 65' over 150'. Sure helps cut down on the guess work ..... it didn't help me boat any however !! :)

Tried the Fish Hawk TD the first time last weekend. i had it set so I could see the temperature in the water column. Worked flawlessly, showed the temperature as it was supposed too. Have yet to try it for the depth but will in the future. Great product, will eliminate hours of fishing the wrong depth and temperature for Salmon and Lake Trout.
A gift from me to me on my birthday. A must have for serious anglers who fish in hot temperature late in the season.
Although it's expensive; you get what you pay for. I've found this unit very accurate . When I've had this unit out of the water; I've compared the temp that it shows with known good temp and has been spot on, likewise when submursed, Ive compared the depth reading with what my depth finder shows and has always been accurate.
I downrigger troll for salmon and rainbow trout in Georgian Bay - part of the Great Lakes. This temperature probe puts me on fish by enabling me to troll at the best temperature for the species of fish that I am after.
je suis très satisfait du service que j'ai eu. je n'ai pas encore essayer mon fish hawk car nous somme encore en hivers ici au Québec tank you I am very satisfied with the service I've had. I have not yet try my fish hawk because we are still in winter here in Quebec thank you
I tried it out to get a temp profile for local reservoir. It worked great and the depth matched my sonar exactly on the bottom location.
Love the TD, works as described. Tells depth of my lead core and slide diver. Service was great, ordered Wed night and got it Fri Morn.
This is a time saver and works great, I really like the feature of lowering the unit while Trolling. Great product for the price.
