Sclaffy, It sounds fishy. $100? If your wife gets a $1900 vacuum, can't you buy nicer equipment?

Camera's are alright, especially if you know exactly where you want to be, and this can set you ON TOP of structure. I have on of the first versions of the aqua view scout, and the ligts on it dont work for crap anyways so its not a big deal.

The fish TV i have looked at a little bit, and if its a camera you want then you got one. i am not sure on durability, and I say this becuase the gauge on the wire down the hole seems a little smaller than on other camera's. as long as you take care of your equipment i dont see why you wouldnt get some good years out of this. but becuase this product is new this year, i havent heard much on how well it works.

A friend of mine bought one, we put it down the hole its a camera! The water was very cloudy, and I never used a different camera at this lake to compare it to. But I think it will work.

I've stuck to the "no-glow" versions so far. When it's "glow" I'm after, I'm using a Buckshot Spoon. However, I'm willing to slowly convert. grin.gif Nice to hear you're happy with the products.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
