Paulie, I have used them on the canadian side, seems its a little clearer water up there. Both during the summer and winter. A few summers ago I was graphing huge baitballs in deep water so I decided to see what they were. Smelt and more smelt... They do have they're advantages... SB

Fished North Arm yesterday. Lot of algae (especially Ash Bay) so camera might not work so good right now. Dead mayflies everywhere - even in middle of lake.

But I too have used camera summer and winter and can usually see down to 30 feet with good results.

Tons of little bass on deep humps! I am surprised that the little 2-4 inch bass hang out so deep. But found them on many humps last year using camera.

I've used them all over the lake, including Black Bay. If you use them to see fish you're going to be disappointed, not that you wont see them but visability is'nt the greatest. I find them more useful to see structure and bottom composition.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
