ovs camera parts



ok i am going to try and explain this. i lost the part that makes the bridge over the hole for ice fishing to hold the camera in place. the long piece bridge not the part that hooks on the cord. i have called ovs two times to have them send me one but they sent me the piece that hooks on the line both times. not saying anything bad about ovs service (in fact they were more than helpful to send it to me and easy to get ahold of) it just seems that i am having a problem explaining what it is that i need. does anyone know if i can get this piece from a store anywhere? or does anyone know what i would call that part so they understand me? do you understand what i am asking for? still have plenty of time till needed on ice but sure is nice to have out there - oh ya if anyone was wondering, yes it did get knocked down the hole - mille lacs, cove bay, peach fishing, 7ft, could see it sitting on bottom but for the life of me could not snag it to get it back.

Nature Vision and Aqua View underwater camera systems makes a very handy tri-pod for suspending the cable/camera in the hole. It holds tight and is easy to work from a sitting or standing position. MSRP $16.50


If you want to see something really "New" & Cool for ice season 2003-4, check out the new remote control Aqua View MO-POD system.


The Aqua View MO-POD has a wireless remote control with a 100-foot range allowing the Motorized Ice Pod (positioned over the fishing hole and gripping the camera cable) to rotate the camera without cable twist.

Aqua-Vu's 92-degree camera angle, combined with the MO-POD's 340-degree rotation, provides continuous 360-degree viewing. And it’s hands-free......preety cool huh.

The small remote control clips to jacket or ice rod. MO-POD runs off eight AA batteries or your Aqua-Vu’s 12-volt battery.
MSRP $110.00

They have a couple of other new surprise's in store for Ice Season 2004. A new video image capture system, the VMM, (Video Memory Module) will be available in January, that will be very interesting.

If you wish to read the press release on the new gear check out this link.

There are definitely some nice new products out there this year. Can't wait for the shows so I can check them out. I've been hearing a lot about the new Aqua-Vu Ice Pro, I'm anxious to see how it is. I've been using the OVS 500 and I must say it is a great camera, helps catch a lot of fish. Too many choices, seems like things are just getting better and better. Ice fishing has come a long way in the last several years and I imagine its only the beginning. smile.gif Sure makes fishing fun.

Good Fishin,

      I thought that I remembered reading a statement years ago from the DNR, where they said it was unlikely that the rusty crayfish would be able to migrate from the east to west basins of Vermilion. It would be a shame if they have already. I'm sure that my wife and daughter will like swimming better with less weeds, but the fishing will suffer.

      On the south end...  Some great fall walleye fishing this past week on Lake of the Woods.  September is a transition time, both for walleyes, bait, and what techniques they prefer.   Walleyes are being caught at many locations around the lake.  The north end continues to be producing a good number of eater walleyes with the mixed in trophy.  This part of the lake has been consistent all summer and now into the fall.   The south end of the lake is kicking out some nice limits as well, just have to find the fish.  Electronics help of course, but so does covering water.   The two techniques to cover water are spinners / crawlers and crankbaits.  Both are still producing fish.  The third common technique that is starting to kick in more and more every week as the water cools is jigging with a frozen emerald shiner.  Once you find the fish, this can be super effective.   Most fish are being caught in 18 - 32 feet, depending upon where you are fishing.  There can be a morning / evening bite along the shoreline areas which is worth exploring.  The shallower water can also light up during the day if bait is present.   Areas throughout the lake with rock hold nice numbers of smallmouth bass.  The south shore between Long Point and Morris Point has many scattered areas with rock as does the areas around Knight, Bridges and Garden Islands.   Saugers, big pike, jumbo perch and a few crappies in the mix of walleyes throughout a day of fishing.   On the Rainy River...   Some good fishing in the Rainy River right now.  Walleyes, saugers, pike, smallmouth bass, crappies, sturgeon, suckers and bullheads are all in the mix, depending upon what technique(s) you are using.     Walleyes continue to be caught in Four Mile Bay, along various shoreline breaks, bars and other pieces of structure up and down the river.  Trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits continues to be effective.  Many anglers are jigging key areas and success.  It will get even better as the waters continue to cool.      Pike and smallmouth bass are being caught casting shorelines, bays and areas with rock or structure.   Sturgeon activity is also getting better.  Fall sturgeon fishing is normally excellent.  The sturgeon season is open through the winter into the spring. Up at the NW Angle...  The NW Angle is putting out some nice fish.  Most anglers are targeting walleyes, but crappies and muskies are favorite species as well during the fall months.   Walleyes are hanging out on points, reefs, flats and neck down areas with current.  Good reports are coming from anglers using jigs, spinners and crankbaits.  Some anglers swear by a jig and plastic or minnow.  Others believe moving around with a spinner or crankbait is most productive.  All three methods are catching fish.   Crappies are being found in 20 - 30 feet off of points and around brush piles. Electronics helps to find the schools.   Casting shorelines this time of year will put a plethora of species in the boat and is very enjoyable.  Crankbaits, jigs, spinnerbaits, inline spinners and bladed jigs are all good lures to work shorelines. Muskies have been active.  Great reports as most muskie anglers fish just over the border from the Angle.  With 14,552 islands, lots of spots, lots of fish.  .

      The rusties are sort of into west end, but I don't know how much.   But in my experience the weeds vary from year to year.   Like this year, our beach didn't have as many weeds as last year.   And the bay on the east side of center Island didn't either.   But other places seemed to be about like usual.

      I will be going up at the end of the month to do a little fishing.  I will do a little calling around and find what others have to say as for the bite on the chain if they have been out.  I will report back to what I find.  Should be good fishing with the cooling temps!

      Numerous residents report tree damage/destruction along Munson Lake lakeshore, just south of Detroit Lakes. Would like an approximate cost for removal of beavers causing damage. thanks randy Schaefer
