9 posts in this topic

We will be coming to LOW New years weekend, and are going out to Borderview's sleepers, from what I've been reading on the reports we'll be in 30 fow by then Anybody know if our cameras will be of any use. We used them on Mille lacs in 25 fow a couple years ago but don't know about LOW. Any help will be appreciated. we have both Marcum and Aqua View

The general consensus is not to bring them. The water is too stained to see more than 1-2 feet. I tried mine in 34 feet a few years ago and don't bring it anymore. Now on Mille Lacs they are fun. You can see up to 15-20 feet.

Leave it home, just one extra thing to carry with no results. Mille Lacs totally different, you can see forever in that lake. Just to murky on LOW. Bill

If you are fishing under 18 feet of water and while the sun is high you can see about 3 feet. I tried mine at 25 feet and could only see about 1 foot if even.

The Best Use for your underwater camera on lake of the woods is to mount the camera to the back of your Fish house and then put the monitor on your dash and use it as a rear view mirror. Seriously, took my aqua view up there last winter, dropped the camera down the hole in 28' of water, pulled it back up, and put it right back into the pickup.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
