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.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
