Reel Weeds? Underwater Camera... pics

Recommended Posts

Laska

Ok so as some of you know I got my Cabela's Advanced underwater camera last sat, by the way its AWSOME!!! Anyways I was wondering if any of you guys have tried the structure on a string and if it really attracts fish, Im going to give it a try on my camera and another in a hole right by my spear hole, my goal is to attract some panfish to get the nords in the area, anyone got some tips and tricks or suggestions on the possibility of this working.

Whats your opinions?

Camera, Reel Weeds...

Camera - Good.

Reel weeds - bad. At least they didn't do much for me. Just IMHO. Hopefully they'll work better for you. It's always good to try new stuff. Might work better on your lakes.

Reel weeds work good for pannies, perch and pike. But haven't had an eye come close. Hope it helps.

laska thats the same cam I have they work great as for the reelweeds Iuse them but not enough the first time i had pike move into them waiting to ambush pannies as they swam by, I didnt have the weeds down the hole 5 mins and the pike were already in them. but this has been the case all the time. no real tips you just have to experiment and its really trail and error. hope they work for you.

See, where I spear (lake winona), I dont have any structure on the only point on the lake, its all weeds that are a foot tall and scattered badly n sandy bottom, Im hoping puting my cam down my spear hole with the weeds on will help bring them in and Ill put one right on the outside of my perm darkhouse, hopefully if the nords come in, they come in between the weeds and thats where my decoys will be, hopefully my plan will work and Ill try to take pictures to show you guys!

elwood maybe if ya come down you can see it in person! Maybe have some simple pointers you could show me.

I have never been a fan of the reel weeds for Spearing. I think they would work, but i try and set up on the outside of the weedline, so there no good for me.

Camera is awesome to be able to check out the bottom before you waste the time to cut the whole!

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.

      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅

      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
