I need a favor from a fisherman / hunter......

4 posts in this topic

I am sure there are few of them here..... wink.gif

Anyway I need you to turn on your Aqua-Vu/Marcum infrared camera in the dark and look through a riflescope to see if you can see.

I sold my cameras since I don't use them and I don't have any available.

I am trying to find an economic night vision system.

I'd say you would need a nightvision scope for that to work. That light projected by a nightvision cam isn't visible otherwise; usually those cams only project a light 30-50' at most anyway.

Most camcorders are capable of infrared recording/viewing - you just need to provide an infrared light source. The image will be grainy, but very distinct.

I use our Sony Handycam with IR flood/heat lamps in the barn to monitor foaling mares. Wired to the vcr in the house, the wife doesn't even have to stay awake all night, just rewind the tape.

If you're looking for true night-vision/stealth or no-light operation, invisble IR LED lamps and cameras can be found at various websites like Supercirciuts.

sorry to say but with night vision you get what you pay for. most camcorders wont see past 30 ft. if you want to see less than 100 yrds gen 1 will work if you want too see farther you will need to get the better stuff. i don't know how accessible the new stuff is but i've heard with gen 3 you need a letter from the state dept. to take out side the U.S.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
