Are you using Heavy Duty batteries????

If so, check the instruction book. There are explicit instructions to use a quality battery, such as Duracell or Energizer.

Here is right out of the manual:

STEP 1 – Install Batteries

1) Install batteries. Always use 4 brand new alkaline D cell batteries. We recommend Duracell or Energizer brand batteries only!

2) You may use rechargeable batteries but battery life may be significantly less.

I made the mistake of trying to be cheap and buy some Heavy Duty batteries from Menards, instead of spending a few extra bucks. I was getting 1 to 2 weeks before the camera was dying because the batteries were dead.

I went to Duracells after reading the owners manual again, and now zero problems. After 3-4 weeks my battery meter was still at 4(4 being the highest battery level)

If they are brand new outta the package Duracells, I would be calling Cuddeback tomorrow morning.

You have a problem.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
