How good is the visibility underwater with the Aqua View on Red Lake?

I know I can see from end to end under the bigger rentals this year with my Marcum camera. Very clear water this year.

The water in URL this year is clearer then I have seen it in years. Some people are saying that it is because of the drought as there is very little drainage out of the bogs.

I got a peek at Jon's new Marcum camara yesterday. It amazed me how clear and detailed everything was. I even went out and got my older model Marcum to compare. I thought my camara was good but I've been left in the dust. cry.gif

I was up there from Sunday to Tuesday and I could only see about 4 feet. The clarity was horrible. Maybe it was the camera, but I think the water clarity was bad. Maybe I should try a Marcum. Is there a big difference on clarity between the two cameras?

I have an Aqua View Scout, Kelly P has both a 460 and 560 Marcum cameras and I just recieved my Marcum VS820. We did compairing on the lake yesterday between units and the new VS820 (black/white) had me speechless. Now I have lots of gadgets for fishing and all sorts of electronics, most don't work as the advertisment said and some are good but not great. The new camera is absolutley the best I have seen.

Red lake is a tough lake for cameras with its stained water and heavy ice/snow cover but the Marcum camrera with high def parts and peices do a great job then click into the on screen menu so you can adjust screen brightness, sharpness and contrast until you have the picture fine tuned for the current conditions. I also liked the blue or infa red ligh option and the fact you can adjust the light intesity with the push of a button.

As many of you know I am the first to grumble about any product but I am truly impressed with the new Marcum camera.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
