Aqua-Vu Showdown

Hi folks. Does anyone out there have any experience with the new "Showdown" depth finder? Like them? Hate them? Worth switching from the unit you had? Just wondering. Thanks

Pyropal,

for the money they are a great unit. The Vertical display is very crisp, and the battery life is measured in DAYS instead of HOURS with the other units out there. Being able to zoom anywhere in the water column is nice. There have been some reports of folks having problem with noise, and the like. But that is generally just a matter of knowing what you are doing and adjusting accordingly.

i purchased one in December i really like it used it in 11 feet of water on a small private lake worked great then also on low in 32 feet of water and also millacs in 27 feet of water. also had the camera down up at millacs so i played around with it there were perch 1 foot of the bottom and then i could zoom in on them with the showdown and see them , i learned alot working the camera and then watching the showdown screen. and yes the the battery does last a long time. Enjoy

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
