Probably fine. I have the Helix 5 wthout DI or SI, but got the bigger battery. I've only been out a couple hours, but it barely dented the charge. You should be good for at least four hours, just power down when paddling out and back if you want to extend fishing time.

I can get two 4-5 hours out of my 10amp Nocqua with light on full. I draw 800ma on a 7. The 5 may draw 400-600 depending on what unit you have.

I have that exact Humminbird unit.  The nocqua 4 should provide around 4-5 hours as Riddler said. I went with a cheaper 9ah battery and have yet to have it die on me. I've spent some 8hr days on the water with it.

Limiting your trips to four hours, to save  some  money on the battery is questionable, especially  after a very productive fishing trip  and heading back in relying on your GPS and it dies. I would and did go with the ten AH Nocqua, on a Raymarine  dragonfly 7. I have been out at night and also in thick fog, GPS can save your life......Jack
