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.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
