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

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
