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.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
