Find fish more easily with castable sonar
Garmin's STRIKER Cast castable sonar device makes it more fun and convenient to locate fish. Simply download the free Garmin STRIKER Cast app, pair the device with your smartphone or tablet, affix the rugged, lightweight device to your fishing line, and cast it. The app will show you where the fish are hiding on your device's screen. All you have to do is to remember that it's not bait.
Works in all kinds of water and depths
The STRIKER Cast device functions just fine in both freshwater and saltwater, and can even handle the rigors of ice fishing. It streams wirelessly from up to 200 feet away, so you can see fish and underwater structure in easy-to-read detail on your device's screen. It'll find the fish whether you're in a shallow stream or out in the ocean. You can choose to employ traditional 2-dimensional sonar mode, or use the more complicated flasher for ice fishing. You can adjust settings for gain, range, and more to dial things in just right.
Built-in rechargeable battery
The STRIKER Cast's built-in rechargeable battery offers up to 10 hours of life on a single charge, and its water-resistance rating means you can leave it in the water for a while without worry. The device even knows to turn off automatically when it's not in the water to conserve the battery.
Get maps from Garmin Quickdraw
Once you've found the perfect spots for picking up fish, you'll want to make sure you can find them again. You can download maps from the online Garmin Quickdraw Community to your phone or tablet, and use the maps to remember prime locations. The maps feature 1' contours, making them easy to follow and understand.

More details on the Garmin STRIKER Cast
Overview: The Garmin STRIKER™ Cast is a compact, floating sonar device that helps you to locate more fish at your favorite fishing spot. It can be paired with your iPhone or Android smartphone or tablet for viewing the live stream on the STRIKER Cast app. You can view the fish, as well as underwater structure. STRIKER Cast works in freshwater or saltwater, and can also be used for ice fishing. It has a 200' streaming range, and operates on a rechargeable battery.
Sonar: The STRIKER Cast offers two sonar frequencies to choose from: 260kHz and 455kHz. The 455kHz setting uses a narrower beam, which works better in rough water. The higher frequency also gives you better bottom definition, and a better indication of the thermocline (the depth at which the water temperature sharply declines). The 260kHz sonar frequency uses a wider beam and covers a larger area. You can view more, and larger, targets. Wider beams perform better in deep water because the lower frequency penetrates the water deeper.
Usage: The STRIKER Cast sonar device can be used with the included 5-meter (16.4') tether, or you can attach a fishing line of 20-lb. test or higher and a #3 barrel swivel with a snap. You can cast the device from the shore, dock, or watercraft, and reel back in to locate and display fish on your device. A dedicated, medium-action (or heavier) fishing rod is recommended, or you could simply tie it off using the included tether. Casting allows you to continually change the location you want to scan. You can also tether the sonar unit to a kayak or canoe and tow it slowly (5 mph or less) behind the vessel. The STRIKER Cast has a streaming range of up to 200 feet.
STRIKER™ Cast App: The Garmin STRIKER™ Cast app is required to view the sonar images on your smartphone or tablet. It pairs to your phone/tablet via Bluetooth and streams the signal to your device within a range of up to 200 feet. The app displays fish and structure in crisp, easy-to-read detail. You can choose from traditional 2-D sonar and ice fishing flasher modes. The Sonar Screen on your device shows the depth and water temperature numerically. Fish are indicated on the screen as "arcs" beneath the water surface. A depth gauge appears on the right edge of the screen to help you determine the depth at which the fish are located. Underwater structure, such as rocks and brush piles, are also shown in the Sonar View. The Flasher View shows the sonar information on a circular depth scale, and is most effective when ice fishing. The flasher colors indicate different strengths of the sonar return, from yellow (strongest) to orange, red, and blue (weakest). White indicates no return. In the center of the Flasher View circle is the numeric readings of the depth and water temperature. The app also displays the Bluetooth signal strength, as well as the transducer's battery level. The STRIKER Cast app is available for iPhones and iPads running iOS version 12.0 or later, and for Android device with Android 6.0 and up.
Battery: The STRIKER Cast operates on a built-in Lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The battery charges in approximately 1.5 hours via USB, using the supplied 21" charging cable. On a full charge, the sonar device has a battery life of approximately 10 hours with typical use. The device automatically powers on when you put it into the water, and stays on as long as it's floating. It also stays on as long as the app is connected. The unit automatically turn off approximately two minutes after you disconnect it from the app and take it out of the water. You can monitor the sonar device's battery level in the app.
