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!

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
