Question

hip_hop_fisherman

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.

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!

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
