Catchcam


Big Dave2

Question

Does anyone know anything about these? I just picked one up at the walleye expo for $99.95. The guy I bought it from said that it was last years demo model.

I have performed a search on this site and cannot find a single post where anyone discusses the cathccam. I also cannot seem to locate a website for this company.

Did I get screwed or what? Does anyone else have one of these or am I the only one in the world? I thought it would be worth the try for that money cuz I bought an aqua view about 3 or 4 yrs ago but I took it back cuz I couldn't see spending $300 on something that I couldn't see very good in the low light conditions. I know this one won't work any better but at 1/3 the cost I can just leave it at home if it doesn't work and not feel so bad.

What do you guys think?

Thanks,
Dave

I tried using it yesterday and just as I thought I couldn't see very far in the lake I was trying it in. Oh well I think they are all probably not much better yet.

The only thing I think might be a problem is the lights on the camera. I thought they were the infra red type but they are actually red lights. I wonder if they will scare fish away or maybe they will attract them.

I got to use on on the Rainy River a few years back right after ice out at Birchdale. This unit worked fantastic at that time of the year. Water was pretty clear and we were only looking down to about 17 feet max. I found it quite impressive to see those big sturgeon laying on the bottom and watching the air bubbles from the current roll across a walleyes face. For 99 bucks, I think you did ok.

Last I heard Catchcam (Axial Technologies) was no longer around. I know they were trying to sell last year. I believe Marcum, and Nature Vision didn't allow to much room for them to manuever.

Thanks for the info guys!

But what do you think of the red lights on this thing? I am kind of leary to put it down there and turn it on cuz it seems to me that it will spook every fish in a 20 ft radius!

I think any bright/unusual light will spook a fish in a 20' radius.
I have a MC2X and I never use the lights at night for ice fishing b/c I'm afraid that the fish will scare it away. The only time I use my lights at night is when trying to locate were the fish are at and seeing how they relate to structure. Otherwise I never us it while fishing, just searching.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.
    • Andre.y
      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
