cabelas camera weight replacement

4 posts in this topic

I have a cabelas underwater camera and lost the sliding weight down an ice hole last night as I was pulling it up crazy.gif. Does anyone know if they sell replacement weights?

I would take the camera to a hardware store & buy a big bolt that fits the bracket.

Squeedunk -

I hope you don't mind me asking but ... I'm finally caving in concerning the acquisition of an under water camera and am starting to do some research. How do you like your Cabela's camera? Have you used it on open water? How does it do for you?

Any feedback you can provide is appreciated. I was at Cabela's a couple of weekends ago and saw that they had a camera with their name on it but the floor model was broken so I couldn't get much of a feel for it VS the Aqua-Vu Scout.

Thanx in advance

Aside from losing the weight down the hole I really like the camera for the price ($200). I have not had much experience with other cameras but the picture quality on the cabelas camera is very nice. It has an infrared light for night time fishing but it isn't the best picture after dark. The camera picks up a lot of junk that's floating in the water and makes it difficult to see very far. In the daylight, you can see quite a ways, depending on how murky the water is. Overall, I am very happy with the camera and would feel lost ice fishing without it now. It works nice in open water too as long as you are not trolling along very fast. If you are moving along the camera will swing up off the bottom from the water pressure on the cord. I am sure this is the same with any other camera as well.

I am heading to cabelas today to see if they have a replacement weight for me.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
