Spool Reel for Aqua Vu Cable in Boat?

2 posts in this topic

I got an Aqua Vu Scout 50 last Christmas and I got a chance to use it 3 or 4 times this past summer. I usually fish on a very clear lake and I wanted to find some structure and mark their locations on a GPS.

This next year I want to drop it down from time to time and see if I can identify some fish. Unfortunately it seems almost impossible to fish and hold depth with that cable at the same time. Has anyone come up with a good way of spooling the cable off the side of the boat? I'm thinking of mounting a small spool reel with a crank and locking nut (think smaller version of garden hose reel). Maybe also come up with a way to mount the monitor/battery to the side of the console. Just curious to see if anyone else has tried anything along these lines. Thanks

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
