I have one and liked it alot until the piece of crap quite working for some odd reason and I am too lazy to get it fixed, but I will have it working by the end of the year. The nice thing about an Aqua view is that it not only shows you how the fish are reacting to your presentation it also helps you to determine the bottom composition when you are searching for fish. When I am looking for perch on the flats I can find the areas where sand meets gravel and then I know that the perch or (Walleye) are near by so that i can start punching whole in that are, it helps me to find where the green weeds or pockets int the green weeds are when I am looking for pike or BULL GILLS!!! I am also able to Identify the species of fish that are down my whole that my vexilar won't tell me. A vexilar is still my favorite tool for searching but having a aqua-view diffinately makes it much easier. It is also fun just to watch the fish come in and chomp on your lure. Every once in a while a pike will hit the camera like a sucker minnow and man that is SWEET to watch!!! anyway I am glad that you brought this up because I am now for sur going to send my camera in to get fixed. GOOD FISHIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had an AquaVu for a couple years and it is good for structure identification, fish species identification, helps you understand the fish reaction to your presentation. It can be frustrating watching fish swim up to your lure and just look at it or swim right by especially when it's a nice 'eye or big crappie. One downer with the camera is that it doesn't have much range in the dark, even with the infrared lights on.

If I had too choose between a underwater camera or vexilar I would buy the vexilar first though.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
