Underwater cameras on LOTW

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any luck with underwater cameras up there? I've heard some of the newer technology can have ok visibility in stained water.

I need to pick one up this season, and if there is a model that will give me decent performance in stained water I will pull the trigger sooner than later.

Ya know those geographic shows when the submers down 2000 ft to the bottom of the ocean, an all they can see is wat looks like snow falling, there actually on the bottom of LOW, cant see sh it. The last time i tried it was about 6 inches of viewing on 16 mile. a fin here an there was it. an that was an exceptional clear year. my 2 cents anyway

Not the best lake for a camera...haven't found or heard of one yet that you can see fish unless you are bumping noses with them.

Boar is right. Seems like you can see your own jig and minnow if the cam and your hook are down the same hole. But if you move the hook over to the next closest hole, no good, out of range.

Little dancing water bugs and swirling muck from bumping the bottom with the cam lens is about it.

That doesn't stop us from trying though, lol.

I've had experience with an older aqua view (2 yrs ago), had to manually use both hands to spin the cord around to change camera angles. To me the camera had very little function on this lake. I will say that I was able to see fish (pretty much their eyeballs) and during the brief use of the machine I was able to spot a fish that got caught during the process. It was kinda neat at best. After that we started catching fish like crazy and there was no time for messing around with a stupid camera. Also had an issue if you touched bottem, things would cloud up for quite awhile. after that outing we gave the unit to my brother-in-law for some crappie lakes down south. If I were you I'd do without unless money is just falling out of your pockets.

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.

      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍

      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
