Fishslayer i have a marcum 560 and i would not trade it for anything else in the camera world. It is a little pricy but well worth the money. The only thing that turned me off on quad is the four screens are very small.

I prefer the Quad 4. Like any other debate, it comes down to personal preference. I like being able to switch between the 4 directions, and being able to see everywhere at once. You can select one direction and make it fill the screen, so the size of the quad screen doesn't matter much.

Thanks guys for the info! Well it just happens that I got the Marcum 560 as my Christmas present smile.gif ! Hopefully it will catch me some fish. Good luck on the ice.

Matt,

have you done any night time viewing and compared the quad against any others? i'm leaning towards the quad myself, but had heard others say the marcum lights seemed to be better in the dark. thanks.

I bought a Quad last year and was really dissappointed in the pictures. So much so that I took it back. Then I found a deal on an 560 and will never go back to the quad. Again, the marcum is more pricey but IMO, it is the better camera. Maybe I just got a bad quad.

Anybody try that new flood light that Aquaview has put out? Seems to attach to the bottom of the camera, and looks like a small LED flashlight.

I have not tried the Quad after dark, but have tried with my old cameras and was happy. I would assume the Quad would be the same. It all depends on the lake after dark though, some lakes allow for much better night viewing.

I've never seen a Marcum camera after dark, so I have no comparison for you, sorry!

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
