I used to have a Marcum, and the visibility was no better but no worse. The only reason I switched was the smaller size of the AV.

To answer your question.. .Nope.. its just scubba diving without getting wet.. you can only see as far as the water clarity allows.

Have a 560 that I use on Vermilion. Works fine. Would work better in clearer water. Don't even bother hauling to LOW as you will be lucky to see 2'

shamrock,

Only viewing 2 feet may be enough if you are using it solely to confirm bottom structure or transition zones. But of course if you are planning to really view while fishing then you would need a bit more distance.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
