Aqua-Vu ZT Problems

Question

Hookmaster

Tried the ZT for the first time last Monday. Very cool. It worked great for about 30 minutes. I was getting horizontal hold problems on the no light setting. It worked fine in the light on setting. Brought it home and charged the battery. Same thing but now lights come on in both switch positions. Voltmeter gave 13.2 volts. Next day no horizontal hold issues but picture is grainy and lights still come on in both switch positions. I am exchanging it tomorrow. Must have gotten a lemon.

I looked at it more closely tonight when I was packing it up and found the camera housing had leaked. There was water on the LEDs and moisture in front of the camera lens. This is what caused the grainy picture.

It's fried!! If you have water in the camera there's no saving it. Call Aqua Vu and they'll give you a RO # and send it in. The whole process should take four days if you're in MN. When they first came out they had alot of trouble with this, I thought it was due to the freezing temps we submit them to and then warming it up in the truck or house when not in use. But, I haven't heard many problems lately. You must have just got a bad one.

Picked up another Aqua-Vu ZT last Friday and used it Saturday morning with my 9 year old sun. Down-viewing, he caught 9-10 sunfish all by himself. He never would have caught that many using the Clearwater Classic because the bites were so light. We also caught a couple of 4# northerns. On the way home he said he had fun and was glad he went. He already wants to go again. However, when putting the new camera in the water for the first time, I notice bubbles coming out of the cable connection to the camera. Not good. It kept working until the battery started getting low but yes, water in the camera again. The ZT has the perch colored camera. I wonder if they had a bad lot of these? Calling Aqua-Vu again today.

I have the Ice Pro camera with the cappie around the camera and the bubbles are just the crappie filling up with water. Mines does it every time. When I pull the camera out of the water, I always have to hold it for a while until the water drains out. I'm not sure if this is where you think your camera is leaking or not, but just a thought.

      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.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
