Underwater cameras


czl99

Question

I have been looking at underwater cameras and i have decided that i want to buy either a Marcum vs305 for $250 or a aqua-vu Z series for $300. If anybody could give me some pointers on which one to buy or another model in the same price range to buy that would be great.

I have the OVS system I bought last year. I have to say I wish I would have saved my money. The camera is a fine unit. Thats not my reason for saying I'd wish'd I'd saved my money. The reason is, the water I fish more often then not is stained water. Tea colored.
In bright sun lite it is possible to see a few fish.
On Minnetonka last winter one day, the water was clear enough to see the perch toying with my jig.
The lake I am on up north is not clear enough to make practicle use of a camera.
I will try it again this weekend as I am heading to lake near Glennwood where the clarity is said to be 10 feet.
Also, unless you have somthing to look at. such as fish or the bottom of the lake. it's is like looking at the sky. you see nothing unless you see a plane fly by.
Anyways, the OVS is a fine unit.

I have the OVS for two years and have had no problems with it at all (I did drop the cable holder down the hole once). The cameras uses are limited, when fishing the cable is always in the way but for finding structure, bottom types and lost goodies they can’t be beat. If I had to choose between a camera or a good flasher, I would take the flasher any day. wink.gif

I have had an FL-18 and sold, not impressed. I can see the uses if you are unfamiliar with the area but if you know where the fish are a camera makes it way more exciting. I saw a guy fishing with one the other day and thought it was great. Our water up in Saskatchewan is clear so you can see at least 10 feet in any direction. I was amazed to see so many walleye. I would get the Aqua-vu they seem to be the best for your money.
Cheers!!

      Every year more and more people come to IT because it is really the technology of the future, but still it is worth knowing what is in demand now, you can find it in this article https://computools.com/automotive-retail/ the sphere is described in great detail and why you need to be a software engineer!

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
