How to Convert Your Humminbird HELIX for Ice Fishing


From open water to ice, converting your Humminbird HELIX for ice fishing is simple.

For many years, ice anglers have had to go without the fish-finding tools that they have come to rely on to help them find and catch more fish during the summer months.

Instead, ice anglers have settled for the decade’s old option of an ice fishing flasher, relying on their memory of the spots where they caught fish in winters before.

Benefits of Using an All-Season Fish Finder on Ice

Fortunately for today's angler, Humminbird’s modern ice fish finders have been engineered for cold-weather performance and enhanced with today’s technology to bring ice fisherman features such as real-time CHIRP sonar (3/4” target separation), multiple combinations of digital flasher and 2D sonar views, CHIRP Interference Rejection, along with built-in GPS and digital lake map options, available on models like Humminbird® ICE HELIX®.

These and other features have created a new age of ice fishing, defined by efficiency, less frustration, and more fish through the ice.

HELIX Ice Fish Finder Options

For anglers who seek the top of the line features and all-season functionality of an ICE HELIX fish finder, there are two options.

Humminbird offers two year-round use models, the ICE HELIX 7 CHIRP GPS G3N All-Season and ICE HELIX 5 CHIRP GPS G2 All-Season that come with a CHIRP / GPS ice unit for ice fishing and all the necessary accessories needed to use the unit on your boat or kayak once the ice melts.

Additionally, for those ice anglers with a HELIX fish finder on their boat, many HELIX fish finders can be converted for ice fishing with a simple conversion kit from Humminbird and a few button pushes, allowing you to use your Humminbird HELIX all year round.
