Is it worth it for the money for open water fishing? Don't want to spend a lot of $$$ on a fancy camera, but the price on this one seems reasonable. Is it worth it?

It is the best $200.00 I have spent this year. You pay $100 a feature for any of the Spectral Response lighting line starting at well over $300.00. No matter what lighting you have, the increase visability is not worth the price. It would be different if you could actually see 5' farther with the better lighting.

HIp hop.. No doubt it s worth every penny.. It will work for ice fishing, but will really shine for open water as well.. I have this unit myself and use it all the time.. an awesome unit as at AWESOME price.. at prices these days it only the cost of a rod/reel combo at $200

I bought the SCOUT for this winter and love it. Will use it this summer more for looking at the bottom,for gravel sand, and weedlines along with types of fish.Great unit for the money.

I will tell you that they do work and work well! Although I haven't bought one my brother did. He instantly became my best fishing buddy. Under the right conditions that thing performed like a champ! No troubles with it either! I can't wait to see how it works on the open water.

Even though I only managed to used mine about 5 times this winter I would say it was $200 that was really well spent. Had one day where I hit the crappies and sunnies in a really finicky mood, and the camera was a really cool way to see the response to different tactics/baits.

Well worth the price!

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
