Heading to Cabelas/digital camera info?

4 posts in this topic

My wife and I are heading to Cabelas in Owatonna this weekend, if I see a good deal on a digital trail camera I may have to splurge, been lusting after a trail camera for the last couple of years, been waiting for the prices on digitals to go down - I think its time.

Any advice on the digital camera features that I should look for? How important is more megapixels? How about getting the pictures off the camera, I'm thinking the ones with the removeable card that you take to your computer to download would be best, then I could have an extra card and then just leave the camera where it is. I also like the idea of a removable camera that you can use other places if you desire. I've heard good reports on the Leaf rivers and Cuddlebacks - your thoughts?

I haven't had a chance to try the Cuddlebacks yet, but the only drawback I've heard is flash distance on those cameras. From everything I've heard though, they are good cameras.

I've been testing a Leaf River camera and have been pretty impressed. You can't take the camera out to use however. It does use the standard flash memory cards (I think this is pretty standard for all digitals).

I'm at over 1100 photos on the first set of batteries on the Leaf River. I can't imagine much better battery life on any camera - this is over 2 months of relatively cold weather... The LeafRiver is a great camera for the money.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
