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.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
