Where to place Underwater Camera?


Norco

Question

Hey Guys,
I just bought myself an Aqua-vu and was wondering how far you put the camera from the hook (the water is clear)? Has anybody had problems with fish wrapping themselves around the cable i.e big Jack or walleye??
I also ordered a ice pod and was wondering if they work well.
Cheers!!

I usually set up with my 2 holes for jigging and pop a 3rd hole about 2 -3 ft. behind and in between, so you have a triangle of holes. That way I can swivel to look at either bait. You want it close enough that you can move it around while jigging, incase you want to look at your other bait or scan around. If water is really murky, like Red lake water, I put it closer (less than 2' away from the hole). Good luck!

I usually will use mine in down view mode. That way I use the same hole I am fishing out of. People are often worried about the fish getting wrapped up in the cord. I have had this happen on pike.. but if you take your time it often works just fine!

Do you guys use the fin to get the camera to point down or do you use other means? One guy told me the its hard to tell the fish species apart when viewing from above, do you find this is true???

Yes I use the fin to use the down view mode. The fin has a little J hook cut into the end of it. You just run the cable threw it. Woks great. I would suppose if you were not as familiar with fish seeing them from the side may be slightly easier to identify fish. However, if you know fish its really not all that hard. I like down viewing because you can see such a larger area. In clear water you can suspend your camera 12 feet or so up off the bottom and see numberous holes in your fish house. Just my opinions!!!

On a clear lake like Mille Lacs, I drill an extra hole about 3 feet off the corner of my portable for the camera. i have my cord wrapped on an old bulk line spool so I can let it down however far I want and the give it one wrap over the spool stand to hold it about 6 - 8 ft off the bottom. (spool stakc is a small piece of treated Plywood with an "L" bracket and long 1/4" bolt through spool and a second bolt through the top of the bracket for a handle)

I use a small piece of wire to angle the camera down. (from fin to wire 5"above camera) This set up allows me to get all four bait in the house on screen at the same time and I believe the eye's in particular don't get spooked byt the camera as much this way.

I'll have to try that for sure, I saw that aqua-vu sells a cam that is fixed on a down position but thought I'd like the one with the fin better. Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a whirl on my next outing!
Cheers!!

      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.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
